The facility has two theatre's featuring Da Vinci Resolve R350 digital grading systems and 2K Barco projectors which mirror those installed at Company 3's US locations. This enables the global team to work together to offer a true end-to-end solution from dailies through to deliverables. The London facility is also equipped to work in partnership with Company 3's sister facility, EFILM®.
"This is a natural progression for our London team after years of collaboration with CO3," says Patrick Malone. "Company 3 is a trusted name among Hollywood studios, synonymous with creative excellence, technical expertise and efficient workflows. Our senior colourists Adam Glasman and Rob Pizzey are world class and this change increases our opportunity to work on more of the large international projects finishing in the UK." The London team, led by Malone, has already worked on several high-profile blockbusters including One Day, The Inbetweeners The Movie, Scott Pilgrim vs. The World and Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time.
"Having a new location based out of London is especially exciting for CO3. The addition of these DI suites opens the door for UK-based feature clients who want to finish at Company 3," says Stefan Sonnenfeld. "It also further expands opportunities for the growing number of features that need to spread post production services across both US and UK locations. I enjoy working with the UK team and this is a positive move for us all. The collaboration of talent, knowledge and seamless workflows across Deluxe's Creative Services group is key to providing the best experience for our clients where ever they are located."
