Post house Company 3, a subsidiary of Deluxe Entertainment Services Group Inc., has opened a division that provides promotions, trailers, titles, animation and effects design work for television networks. Company 3 On-Air Promotions and Trailers is already working with CBS and Mark Burnett on an elaborate trailer project to highlight the upcoming season of Survivor.
Among the first to join the new Company 3 venture are Robert Mape, who spent the past four years as sr. editor of the Television Division at Trailer Park, Hollywood; and Steve Beal, who headed New York-based shop, Bionic. In addition, a number of key Bionic personnel have signed on to round out the division's creative, technical and support staff. Mape joins his new roost as creative director/sr. editor while Beal assumes the post of sr. editor/VP, Promotions and Trailers.
Mape has overseen major launches for Nickelodeon and identity packages for the Kids Choice Awards, and many others. "I can now collaborate with clients on either coast or anywhere in-between through virtual sessions," noted Mape. "I'm now truly working in an office without walls--and that's an excellent benefit for me and for our clients."
Veteran producer/editor Beal has been responsible for a number of extremely creative and successful design and promotional campaigns for Nickelodeon, MTV, the USA Network, A&E and many more.
Stefan Sonnenfeld, president and founder of Company 3, views his company's diversification as being "a great complement to our existing offering, including the promo services our group provides at RIOT in Atlanta."
Company 3 On-Air Promotions and Trailers operates out of interconnected New York and Los Angeles facilities, and will utilize Deluxe's extensive networked infrastructure.
