Jason Hanel has brought his unique sensibility to Company 3 (and previously at EFilm) for more than 12 years. He has colored an impressive amount of marketing (trailer, promo) material and has been the go-to artist for many major animated feature films, including The Super Mario Bros. Movie, Minions: The Rise of Gru and Sing 2  from Illumination Entertainment and Hotel Transylvania 2, from Sony Pictures Animation. He has also brought his technical prowess and artistic sensibility to indie films, such as the timely drama The Obituary of Tunde Johnson and Helen Hunt-starring horror feature, I See You. Hanel’s recent TV work includes the beloved Netflix series, Green Eggs and Ham. His expertise extends to all facets of 3D and HDR finishing, having colored so much animation in those formats.

Prior to joining the company, Hanel worked at Pacific Title as an online editor and compositor, honing talents he still brings to every project he works on. A native of Southern California, Hanel started his career as a runner for Sony Pictures Imageworks after graduating from the University of Southern California with a degree in Cinema and Still Photography, where he made short films and captured and printed a large number of images, both digitally and photochemically. He continues to pursue his interest in photography in what little spare time he can find.
