SANTA MONICA, Calif., Sept. 21, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Company 3 (CO3), a subsidiary of Deluxe® Entertainment Services Group Inc., announced today the integration of Deluxe 142's London-based Digital Intermediate (DI) facility into its network of locations.
The addition extends the reach of Company 3's operations into Europe, complementing its existing New York, Atlanta and Santa Monica locations. Company 3 in London will be overseen by Stefan Sonnenfeld, Company 3 president & co-founder and president of Deluxe Creative Services, with day-to-day operations to be led by Patrick Malone, director of digital film services.
"Having a new location based out of London is especially exciting for CO3. We are a trusted collaborator among Hollywood studios and our name is synonymous with creative excellence, technical expertise and efficient work flows. The addition of these DI suites will open the door for UK-based feature clients who want to finish at Company 3," says 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."
The London location has two DI theaters featuring Da Vinci Resolve R350 digital grading systems and 2K Barco projectors which mirror those installed at Company 3's U.S. 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®.
Sonnenfeld adds, "We've been working closely with the team in the UK for years and they are world class, having already worked on several high-profile blockbusters including One Day, Scott Pilgrim vs. The World and Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time. The collaboration of talent, knowledge and seamless workflows across Deluxe's Creative Services group is key to providing the best experience for our clients wherever they are located."
Company 3's London DI service will remain an integral part of the suite of services offered by Deluxe 142 who will continue to offer a complete end to end post production solution to their client base spanning the broadcast and feature film market.
