Since joining Company 3 in 2013, Bryan Smaller has brought his keen interest in pushing the boundary between VFX and color to his commercial, music video, television, and feature film work.
Smaller’s collaborations with Kanye West, The Weeknd, and Ariana Grande sent him to the VMAs, while his commercial projects for Toyota, Budweiser, Airbnb, and Lyft have brought his work to the international stage. Smaller has collaborated with fellow colorists on an impressive list of television shows including Vital Signs for Apple, Timeless for NBC, and Narcos for Netflix. He has also colored a number of independent features, including festival favorite Autism in Love.
Smaller’s roots are in Chicago, where he directed his first broadcast commercial at age 14. By the time he was 18, he had put together well over 100 client videos, several of which were for major brands, including Reader’s Digest and Walgreens. Smaller began his colorist career in New York and Chicago before moving to Los Angeles in 2012.
