(Santa Monica, California--July 18, 2012) Award-winning post house Company 3, a subsidiary of Deluxe Entertainment Services Group Inc., announced today the opening of a new division that provides promotions, trailers, titles, animation and effects design work for television networks. The division will house some of the finest creative and technical talent in the industry within interconnected New York and Los Angeles facilities, and will utilize Deluxe's extensive networked infrastructure.
On-Air Promotions and Trailers is already working with CBS and Mark Burnett on an elaborate trailer project to highlight the upcoming season of the extremely popular Survivor.
"With the incredible team we're assembling and the resources we have in place, we can offer the highest level of artistic quality and technical efficiency for all types of promotional campaigns," says Stefan Sonnenfeld, President and Founder of Company 3.
The new division boasts a design group with extensive expertise in branding and rebranding, show titles and packages including experts in editorial, mixing and sound design for stand-out story telling.
Among the first to join the team are Robert Mape, who spent the past four years as Senior 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.
One of the most sought-after editors in the field, Mape has overseen major launches for Nickelodeon and identity packages for the Kids Choice Awards, and countless others. "I'm very excited to be involved with this new offering at Company 3," Mape declares. "I can now collaborate with clients on either coast or anywhere in-between through virtual sessions. I'm now truly working in an office without walls--and that's an excellent benefit for me and for our clients."
The highly-respected veteran producer/editor Beal has been responsible for a tremendous number of extremely creative and successful design and promotional campaigns for Nickelodeon, MTV, the USA Network, A&E and many more. "We are all energized and inspired," he enthuses. "This division will offer clients the highest level of creative output and efficiency ever available in this realm."
"We're very excited about this new offering," Sonnenfeld concludes. "It's a great complement to our existing offering, including the promo services our group provides at RIOT in Atlanta."
