For Super Bowl XLIII, which aired earlier this month on NBC, Company 3 contributed color correction to more than 1/3 of all commercials broadcast for this year’s game. Sister company Method Studios contributed visual effects to a total of six spots aired during Super Bowl ’09.
Such high-profile Super Bowl commercials that featured creative services from Company 3 and Method were Career Builders’ “Tips,” Hulu’s “Alec in Huluwood,” Pepsi “Refresh” and “Pass,” and TheLadders’ “Little Creatures” and “Chairs.”
Additionally, Company 3 provided color correction for Super Bowl spots for Audi, Gatorade, Cars.com, Hyundai, Sobe, Heineken, Taco Bell, NFL, USA Networks, Paramount Pictures and Toyota, just to name a few. Colorists at Company 3 who contributed to Super Bowl commercials this year included: Stefan Sonnenfeld, Mike Pethel, Dave Hussey, Tim Masick, Sean Coleman, Matt Turner, Billy Gabor, and Tom Poole.
If you’sre a monster, you announce your presence with authority. Such is the story behind ‘Monsters,’ a new spot directed by Dante Ariola of MJZ for high-end job search engine The Ladders. The spot was directed by MJZ Dante Ariola in collaboration with Method Studios, ad agency Fallon Minneapolis and Company 3. Seamlessly blending old-school movie monsters with the latest visual effects and computer generated animation, the spot takes a humorous look at what it takes to get a big job done.
