Career advancement in the highly competitive world of post-production can be challenging. For the next edition of its popular weekly videoconference series Post Break, the Post New York Alliance is assembling a panel of up-and-coming and established industry professionals to share their secrets on moving up the ladder. Titled Making Moves: How to Get Promoted in Post, the free event is slated for Thursday, August 13 at 4:00 p.m. EDT.
Post-production offers many personally, and financially, rewarding career opportunities, but the dynamic nature of the business means there are few tried-and-true paths to those dream jobs. Young career aspirants must rely on hard work, moxie, networking skills and resilience to gain that big promotion or new job. In this lively one-hour session, successful editors, post-production supervisors and others will tell how they earned their big breaks and offer advice to others looking to follow in their footsteps.
Panelists will include:
Gloria Tello, Assistant Editor, Lee Daniels’ The United States vs. Billie Holiday.
David Massachi, Assistant Editor/Editor, Foxcatcher, Allegiant, The Undoing.
Shelby Siegel, ACE, Editor, Paul Haggis’ In the Valley of Elah, Mike Nichols’ Charlie Wilson’s War, Ang Lee’s Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon and Brokeback Mountain, HBO’s The Jinx: The Life and Deaths of Robert Durst (Emmy Award: Outstanding Picture Editing for Nonfiction Programming).
Jamal Bilal, Post-Production Supervisor, The Deuce, Quantico, Tommy.
The moderator will be:
Claire Shanley, Post Producer, The Plot Against America, The Deuce; Co-Chair, NYC LGBT Center; Advisory Board, New York Women in Film & Television.
