We use the virtual world to imagine, plan and problem solve for stories in film, television, games, VR and themed attractions.
Now we’ve grown into a global company, partnering with our clients in locations like London, South Africa, Ireland, Australia and Canada.
Our founders still work as artists, supervisors and creative directors on projects.
We love helping the world’s leading creatives realize their vision.
We visualize your story at every stage of its creation.
From storyboards to post-production, we collaborate with you to explore your narrative, design shots and plan technical solutions.
Before your project is even greenlit, you can test your concept with a custom-made previs trailer.
Our “pitchvis” trailers have been used to help greenlight Godzilla (2014), Men in Black 3, Jack the Giant Slayer, Oz: The Great and Powerful and others.
To kick off the visualization process, our storyboard artists sketch story beats for each scene.
The editorial department cuts these shots into animatics for review.
Next we build the world your story lives in.
In Maya’s 3D virtual space, we generate each scene’s environment and elements.
With the assets in place, our artists animate the story and shots. The 3D visualization allows you to explore every action and angle. Previs is your sandbox and stress-test before you shoot.
Once previs captures your vision, we run a technical analysis to see how the story can be physically shot.
Our workflow stores all technical information (lens type, camera distance, size of a greenscreen, speed of a vehicle) and produces blueprints for physical production.
Our iterative, nonlinear virtual production workflow merges virtual environments and characters with your physical production.
We use imagery and 3D spatial data generated during previs to provide services such as virtual location scouting and on-set visualization.
After production, we combine the previs elements with the live action photography to quickly preview the film before implementing final VFX.
Postvis provides a post-production blueprint for your VFX team and a comprehensive look at the film for test screenings.
Our goal is to create a collaborative and thriving environment where people can reach their greatest potential.
We cast each of our shows, matching artists with projects they are passionate about.
From VR, films, theme parks and more, we have a variety of projects where we can utilize your unique skills and interests.
Lunch and learns, guest speakers, training sessions, and scholarship opportunities are all the status quo around here to help you grow in your craft and your career.
We could run down the list of everything we offer like benefits, paid Parental Leave and a 401(k), but we think our perks best exemplify our company culture. Take a look and decide for yourself:
If any of this has piqued your interest, we encourage you to take a look at our current open opportunities here!
I worked at THE THIRD FLOOR Visualization full-time (More than a year)
Fulfilling work. Supportive departments and unique experiences as an Artist. Lovely people. Competitive pay and good work life balance. Felt there was always opportunity to grow and step up. Cool projects worked on and coming up.
Pipeline needs an overhaul. Could be more streamlined for efficiency sake.
I applied online. I interviewed at THE THIRD FLOOR Visualization (Los Angeles, CA (US)).
The interview should have been my first clue. It was a honey-pot full of promises. It sounded too good to be true and it is!
If you are a professional and value your career path. Do NOT accept an offer from The Third Floor Visualization.
