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 extensive study in many facets of the visual arts, from fine art to digital animation and compositing. Paulson brings his keen eye and understanding of image creation to color grading, where his refined taste and mastery of the technology has made him popular with a great many filmmakers. 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, Rogue One, Sicario and Gretel & Hansel, for which he received an HPA nomination for their Outstanding Color, Feature Film award. Paulson’s recent TV work includes HBO’s highly-praised Mare of Easttown and the powerful Netflix mini-series When They See Us. A Minnesota native, Paulson studied fine arts at Minneapolis College of Art and Design and subsequently received certification in a variety of VFX tools from Digital Hollywood Institute of Media Arts.
