Company 3 has an ongoing relationship with Vrse.works, recently providing color grading for their UN VR documentaries “Clouds Over Sidra” and “Waves of Grace,” and Guy Shelmerdine’s VR music video “Revolt” for Muse. For “The Displaced,” Hussey carefully matched the look of the film to the photos in the corresponding Times Magazine article in order to lend a cohesive feel across mediums. He completed color grading on DaVinci Resolve.

Additional NYT VR projects, developed in conjunction with Vrse.works and colored by Company 3, are slated to roll out in the coming months. For more information on Hussey and other Company 3 colorists, please visit http://www.company3.com/.
