Based at Company 3 Hollywood. Available virtually through any Company 3 Virtual Outpost.

Mitch Paulson joined Company 3 (formerly known as EFILM) in 2005 following a three-year stint working on trailers, first as a compositor and then as a colorist. He started out in the industry after the extensive study of many facets of the visual arts, from fine art to 3D animation and compositing. He is equally comfortable working in a traditional filmic style as he is creating strong looks that could only be achieved digitally, depending on the project and clients’ preference.

His impressive list of feature credits includes Blade Runner 2049Skyfall, Sicario, AmsterdamRogue One, Jungle Cruise, Gretel & Hansel and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem. Paulson’s recent episodic TV work includes highly-acclaimed 1883, 1923, Mayor of Kingstown, and Special Ops: Lioness, all for Taylor Sheridan. He has been nominated for several HPA awards over the years, and in 2021 he received the award for Jungle Cruise. A Minnesota native, Paulson studied fine arts at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design and subsequently received certification in a variety of VFX tools from the Digital Hollywood Institute of Media Arts. In 2019, he was accepted into both the Academy of Motion Picture Sciences and the American Society of Cinematographers.
