After qualifying as an electronics engineer, Mick Vincent joined Rank Cintel as a telecine engineer and travelled the world installing and maintaining their products. He made an important career decision in 1985, joining the fledgling VTR as a colourist working exclusively on commercials. Eventually, Mick started mixing non-linear feature film grades like the video master of Love Actually, and worked as Supervising Colourist on The Constant Gardener.
After moving to The Mill, Mick was instrumental in the decision to choose Baselight as their first non-linear grading system for commercials and it quickly became the go-to system both for commercials and long-form. After that, he worked on thousands of commercials, as well as well-known and -loved TV shows such as Dr Who, Torchwood and Merlin.
