LONDON — Framestore colorists Steffan Perry, Simon Bourne, Beau Leon, Clark Griffiths and Dominic Phipps will be joining the Company 3 (company3.com) roster, following a major development in the partnership between the two studios. London-based senior producer Chris Anthony, who has been an integral member of Framestore's color department for over 14 years, will also be joining the team and working closely with executive producer, Ellora Soret.
In London, Perry, Bourne, Phipps and Anthony will join an existing roster of talented colorists at Company 3's newly-completed Chancery Lane studio. The team will work across both advertising and longform projects, and expand on Company 3’s legacy as the global leader in color. Leon and Clark will join the roster of US-based artists.
Bourne regularly works with directors such as Daniel Wolfe, Salomon Ligthelm and Dan Delifice.
Perry has 24 years of experience and has worked with leading brands and entertainment providers. One of his recent jobs was McDonald’s Christmas ad, Imaginary Iggy.
Phipps has been successful in the hybrid role of assist/colorist for Framestore since 2018 and has brought his keen eye and attention to detail to many commercials, as well as to music videos. His credits include work with Pixey (Electric Dreams), Easy Life (Nightmares-Live) and Alfie Templeman (Forever Isn't Long Enough).
Leon’s body of work crosses commercials, feature films, documentaries and music videos. He launched his career with the iconic R.E.M. music video Losing My Religion, and has subsequently worked with hundreds of high-profile artists, filmmakers and brands.
Griffiths, who is based in the heart of Chicago, has graded a wide variety of commercials in virtually all genres. Some of his credits include work for State Farm, Corona Seltzer, Volkswagen and Cadillac.
"We are delighted to be further bolstering our teams in London, Los Angeles and Chicago," says Stefan Sonnenfeld, Company 3 founder and president. "This addition of talent and expertise from Framestore's color department will position Company 3 to be able to enhance our already world-class post and color services to TV shows, features, commercials and music videos."
