Boyle’s career has taken her from her native Dublin to London and then to Thailand, Turkey, the Netherlands, Montreal and Vancouver for the past four years. She joined Company 3 after a decade at Technicolor (recently rebranded as Picture Shop), where she colored an impressive list of shows, including NBCUniversal’s The Disappearance; The Truth About the Harry Quebert Affair for MGM; and The Princess Switch, Messiah and Hypnotic for Netflix.
Shannon has served in various color-grading-related capacities on over 160 feature films and significant episodic TV shows. She first joined Company 3 London in 2008 as a trainee in the scanning and recording department, and soon became a colorist in her own right. She subsequently took a position at Dneg in Vancouver as senior VFX colorist, where her responsibility rapidly expanded to overseeing all color work for their Montreal, London and Los Angeles locations. She led the VFX grading on many high-profile feature films, including several Marvel and DC projects, and major award-winners, including Dune, First Man and Blade Runner 2049.
“We are delighted to welcome these two highly-talented colorists to our expanding slate of artists in Vancouver,” says James Fraser, VP & GM Company 3 in Canada. “They represent a significant part of our commitment to expanding along with the growing market in the region for both production and post services. Anne is known for her keen eye and thorough understanding of the whole process of filmmaking and post. Shannon managed a global team of colorists at a major global visual effects company.”
“The addition of these artists is one of many steps we’ve been taking to enhance the global reach of Company 3,” adds CEO Stefan Sonnenfeld. “Company 3 will continue to expand its presence wherever there is a growing demand for top quality post services. Vancouver has seen significant growth in production and post, and we’re very excited to have these talented artists there to meet the challenge.”
