The world of post production presents some of the largest opportunities for those entering the digital media/ entertainment business. It is at once technologically heavy yet also requires consummate people skills, making it an ideal place for long-term career advancement for the correct candidate. In this channel, we will interview three professionals based in the world of post production:
Jennifer Phillips has been a post production supervisor for nearly twenty years, working for a wide variety of companies both in the United States and in Canada. In this series of interviews, she discusses some of the important issues of post, the changes that have happened over the years, and some anecdotes about specific problems with various series including BAYWATCH. Further, she speaks of some of the nuts and bolts of post production, including workflows and delivery -- items that are not often covered in class.
This series of videos were initially created as part of our initial pilot and will be reshot during the 14/15 fiscal year. Charles Unger is an editor and independent producer who has worn many hats in the industry. In these episodes, he talks a little about independent producing but also his own methodology when teaching editing and post.
This, too was a pilot episode that will be reshot in 2014/15. Dylan, like Charles, is also an independent producer, but is also an executive at Modern Video. In this series, he discusses some of the day to day protocols of being in a post production facility/front office environment.
