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 colored Oscar-nominated film Greyhound, which earned him an Outstanding Color Grading HPA nomination. His collaborations with Kanye West, The Weekend, and Ariana Grande sent him to the MTV VMAs, while his work on the Super Bowl LI Opening earned him his first of three Emmys. In 2021, Smaller was added to the Forbes 30 Under 30 list for his contributions to Art & Style.
Smaller has graded over 45 feature films including Netflix’s Chupa directed by Jonas Cuarón and Fool’s Paradise directed by Charlie Day. He has also graded numerous television shows including Inside Bill’s Brain for Netflix and The Curse of Von Dutch for Hulu.
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 over 100 client productions for brands including Reader’s Digest and Walgreens. Smaller began his colorist career in New York and Chicago before moving to Los Angeles in 2012. When he’s not coloring, Bryan can be found playing guitar with his amp turned up to 11.
