Post house Company 3 announced its sponsorship of the SXSW Best Documentary Award at the SXSW Film Festival this year. The winning filmmaker will receive $50,000 in post services from Company 3 towards the completion of his or her next feature.
Company 3 is known for digital intermediate color grading on major blockbuster features, including Oz: The Great and Powerful, and the upcoming Man of Steel and Star Trek: Into Darkness, but the company also caters to the indie film community. Company 3 recently posted projects including the critically acclaimed drama The Sessions, HBO’s popular Rolling Stones documentary Crossfire Hurricane and festival favorites Robot & Frank and The Spectacular Now.
Company 3 also performed color grading and other postproduction services on films to be screened at SXSW this year, including:

Skin (colorist Anthony Raefelli)
The Spectacular Now (colorist Sean Coleman)
Spring Breakers (colorist Stephen Nakamura)
Touba (colorist Siggy Ferstl)
“Company 3 has always been a part of the independent film scene, and we intend to keep it that way in the future,” said Company 3 president and founder Stefan Sonnenfeld.
