Company 3 Detroit, a Deluxe company, has hired colorist Robert Curreri to its facility in Royal Oak, Michigan. A prominent short-form colorist, Curreri has brought his talents to commercials for high-profile brands including Honda, Target, Ford, Sprint, Volkswagen, Budweiser, Yahoo and Reebok and to music videos for artists including Beyonce, Lady Gaga, All American Rejects, Weezer and Kid Rock.
Curreri’s work for My Chemical Romance earned him a Music Video Production Association Award for “Best Colorist.” Previously based in Los Angeles, Curreri relocated to the Motor City, where he will serve Company 3 clients in that region.
Curreri began his post production career as a music video colorist in the early ’90s. Over the subsequent two decades, he collaborated with some of the industry’s most talented directors and cinematographers while at Company 3, Riot and The Syndicate. Just before re-joining Company 3, Curreri worked as a freelance digital intermediate artist for feature films, music videos and commercials, most recently on the Foo Fighters’ HBO documentary series, Sonic Highways, directed by Dave Grohl.
“Robert is a uniquely talented colorist,” says Stefan Sonnenfeld, Deluxe Creative Services’ CEO. “He will be a great addition to our roster of artists in and around the Detroit area. And, of course, he can work remotely with Company 3 clients in any location.”
“I’ve spent a great deal of time working closely with Detroit-based clients, particularly in the automotive industry,” Curreri notes. “I’ve grown extremely fond of the Detroit community, so I eagerly accepted the opportunity to join Company 3 Detroit. I’m excited to be part of the Company 3 family once again.”
