Company 3 has added Jeremy Sawyer (Hulu’s The First; I’m Dying up Here for Showtime) to its roster of colorists, signaling the company’s rapidly expanding slate of TV projects. Company 3 has more than 20 television series currently in the facility, including such major shows as Lost in Space (Netflix), Insecure, (HBO) and Jack Ryan (Amazon).
Sawyer, who has distinguished himself on a significant number of major series, including The Walking Dead (AMC) and The Affair (Showtime), brings a refined sensibility and deeply-entrenched understanding of the TV post workflow to Company 3’s rapidly growing TV department.
The move is something of a homecoming for Sawyer. As an assistant and then colorist at Company 3, he learned a great deal of his craft from CEO/founder Stefan Sonnenfeld. Sawyer returns to the company following a successful tenure at Light Iron and before that, MTI. Prior to his initial stint at Company 3, Sawyer worked at the now defunct Syndicate. He started his career in postproduction at Finish Post in his native Boston.
Sonnenfeld said of Sawyer, “He is an excellent artist and he has a keen understanding of the unique challenges involved in coloring episodic programming. He’s a perfect addition to our team, especially as demand for top-notch TV post continues to explode.”
Sawyer will continue his work on the third season of Netflix series, Easy, for which he’s colored every episode to date.
