Happy Holidays From Company 3

December 21, 2022 Dec. 21, 2022

Once again, this year, we have decided to shift our approach to gifting during the holiday season. Instead of shopping and shipping, we’re giving back and donating to local charities in the cities Company 3 and our sister companies Powerhouse VFX, Method Studios, Encore VFX, and SDFX Studios calls home.

The charities we have selected reflect our ongoing dedication to amplifying community voices and building a robust and equitable launchpad for future generations of creative talent. Engaging with a diverse and far-reaching network of creative perspectives remains at the forefront of our mission, and we’re thrilled to be partnering with a roster of organizations who support and empower this vital work.
