LONDON — Deluxe Creative Services’ Company 3 has brought in Claire McGrane to lead the London team. She also joins the senior global management team for the Company 3 group.
Involved in the digital intermediate process since its infancy in 2000, McGrane was the DI producer on Cold Mountain, one of the first features in London to go through the DI process. Her success in DI was recognized in 2003 when she moved to Framestore, where she was tasked with developing their DI offerings and expanding the team. The subsequent three years saw the business grow into an internationally recognized DI house, working on many iconic features.
"We are delighted to have secured someone of Claire's calibre to join the Company 3 team,” says Stefan Sonnenfeld, president of Company 3. “It is rare to find the combination of technical and operational knowledge together with the empathy required to support the creative vision of the filmmaker. Claire brings a fresh approach to Company 3, which will see the London facility be more in tune with clients' needs. Having someone so deeply embedded within the film and TV community in London is exciting for us. "
"It is exciting to have access to a world-class team of international colorists based both here and in the US," adds McGrane. "It's not every day that you can offer London-based colorists the opportunity to work on US features and vice versa. This level of flexibility is what sets Company 3 apart and I'm excited to introduce a fresh and more collaborative approach to what is already the leading DI facility in London.”
