Company 3 has launched a new location in Atlanta, Georgia. This new location, housed in sister company RIOT‘s facility, offers the same technical and creative services as Company 3 in Los Angeles and New York, ranging from dailies and non-linear color grading to digital intermediate (DI) for commercials, episodic television and feature films.
The new Company 3 location, part of Deluxe‘s creative services group, a close-knit group of facilities overseen by Stefan Sonnenfeld that includes Beast, EFILM, Method Studios, RIOT and Rushes, leverages a comprehensive suite of end-to-end services, access to world-class artists, technical expertise and a tight infrastructure with global connectivity between facilities.
The resident colorist for the new location is Company 3’s own Billy Gabor. A graduate of the Film School at Georgia State University, Gabor started his career in the south, rebuilding telecines and remastering films for Turner Classic Movies before moving on to Los Angeles and New York. “It’s exciting to come back to Atlanta where I started my career and help extend the Company 3 footprint,” said Gabor. “This new location strengthens both Company 3 and RIOT. Georgia’s tax incentives to production companies and a diverse market make Atlanta a great place to be. Stefan has created an amazing company and we all share his vision that what we do is really an indispensable part of the filmmaking process.”
Recently, Gabor has worked on campaigns for Allstate (which won an AICP 2011 Creative Excellence award), Febreze (which won a Cannes Lions Silver Award), Google (shortlisted in four 2011 AICP Show categories: visual style, production, production design and agency art direction) and Duracell (for the 2012 Olympics) as well a short film for the Grammy-winning band Arcade Fire.
“Atlanta is a thriving market and we are excited to work in concert with RIOT and its already established presence,” said Sonnenfeld, Company 3 colorist/co-founder and president of Deluxe’s creative services group. “Along with Los Angeles, New York and all of our virtual outposts around the world, we offer an unparalleled reach, which allows clients to perform live, real-time sessions with the Company 3 artist of their choice, anywhere, anytime.”
