HOLLYWOOD — Company 3 (company3.com) has added Steven J. Scott to its roster, joining the studio as executive vice president/senior finishing artist. His extensive, high profile credit list includes work on director/DP Alfonso Cuarón’s Roma and
Gravity, as well as 19 Marvel features, including
Iron Man and
Guardians of the Galaxy. In addition, he collaborated on a number of Academy-Award-winning films, including
The Jungle Book,
Birdman or The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance and
“Steve is someone I’ve always wanted to work with and I am beyond thrilled that he has agreed to work with us at Company 3,” says Company 3 CEO Stefan Sonnenfeld. “As we continue the process of reimagining the entire concept of what ‘post production’ means creatively and technically, it makes perfect sense to welcome a leading innovator and brilliant artist to our team.”
“I look forward to joining Stefan and the incredible roster of talent he’s assembled at Company 3,” Scott adds. “I have followed his career from the start. He helped create the role of the colorist/finishing artist as we know it today. Company 3 has always been a leader in color and post and is positioned to further expand that role in a rapidly-changing industry, and I’m excited to be a part of that.”
Company 3 is currently completing work on a brand-new location at 950 Lillian Way in the heart of Hollywood, which represents the first phase of a planned much larger footprint in that area of Los Angeles. The new space will enable the company to significantly expand its capacity while providing the same high level of artistry and personalized service. It will also enable them to service more eastside and valley-based clients.
Sonnenfeld and Scott will oversee all facets of this new boutique-style space.
“The opportunity to help design a new cutting-edge facility in my Hollywood hometown was too great to pass up,” Scott explains.
“The industry is experiencing a renaissance of content,” Sonnenfeld declares. “The old models of feature film vs. television, long- vs. short-form are changing rapidly. Workflows and delivery methods are undergoing revolutionary changes with more content, and highly-innovative content, coming from a whole array of new sources. It’s a very exciting and challenging time and I think these major additions to our roster and infrastructure will go a long way towards our goal of continuing Company 3’s role as a major force in the industry.”
