Company 3 London has brought Jean-Clément Soret aboard as sr. colorist. Formerly MPC’s global creative director of color grading, Soret has a 25-plus year career which has seen his work span major features and commercial campaigns internationally. His work has been recognized on the awards show circuit including the coveted British Arrows Craft Fellowship Award (presented by his long-time collaborator Danny Boyle) and a six-time recipient of the Best Colorist award at the British Arrow Craft Awards.

Among Soret’s assorted credits include HBO’s Chernobyl, His Dark Materials, season 1&2, Trainspotting 2; Sunshine, Slumdog Millionaire and 28 Days Later directed by Boyle; and You Were Never Really Here directed by Lynne Ramsay. His ad work includes a number of iconic spots in the history of advertising, some awarded a Cannes Lions Grand Prix. Soret boasts an enviable list of international directors, cinematographers and producers as part of his client base.

Ellora Soret, formerly head of color production at MPC, will be joining Jean-Clément and the Company 3 team as executive producer. She has pioneered remote grading practice worldwide on an impressive scale, nurtured many talented colorists and built a network of filmmakers. She has been at the helm of world-class productions for Soret and other renowned colorists across her 20 years career and will be a driving force in Company 3 London’s growth.

Company 3 CEO and founder, Stefan Sonnenfeld stated, “I’ve been a long-time admirer of Jean-Clément’s career. His experience, passion and unique knowledge of the craft matched with his sincere care for his clients and peers make him an extremely exciting and pivotal artist to have as part of the Company 3 family. We are beyond excited for what’s to come as he helps to forge new paths for us, particularly in the U.K. and Europe.”
