Company 3 has acquired New York-based production and post boutique Sixteen19, including the company’s mobile dailies service and co-located PowerHouse VFX facility. The move brings Sixteen19 under the purview of Deluxe Entertainment Services Group, of which Company 3 is a subsidiary.
As part of the deal, Sixteen19 co-founders Jonathan Hoffman and Pete Conlin and EVP of Business Development and Strategy Alastair Binks will become part of the leadership team at Company 3. Company 3 President Stefan Sonnenfeld will “oversee” operations at Sixteen19, the company said in a press release.
Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
The move will allow Company 3 to expand its dailies services and add creative editorial spaces in Los Angeles, New York and London, the company said, enumerating the amenities at Sixteen19’s NYC offices: 60 large editorial suites and two 4K grading theaters. Company 3 also said Sixteen19’s mobile dailies service will complement its existing offering.
“This infusion of talent and infrastructure will allow us to provide a complete suite of services for clients, from the start of production through the creative editing process to visual effects, final color, finishing and mastering,” said Sonnenfeld in a prepared statement. “We’ve worked in tandem with Sixteen19 many times over the years, so we know that they have always provided strong client relationships, a best-in-class team, and a deeply creative environment. We’re excited to bring that company’s vision into the fold at Company 3.”
