With awards season in full swing, Post Break, the free webinar from Post New York Alliance, will host post-production professionals behind some of this year’s most celebrated films. What is it like to work on a project that’s generating Oscar buzz? Did they know from the start that the project was special? What career benefits come from association with a film that wins an Academy Award or other top honor?
The session is scheduled for Thursday, April 8th at 4:00 pm EDT. Following the webinar, attendees will have an opportunity to join small, virtual breakout groups for discussion and networking.
This special Post Break edition will feature as panelists Rita Walsh, associate producer/post-production supervisor on Never Rarely Sometimes Always, a winner of 28 creative awards, Skip Lievsay, re-recording mixer on Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom, a nominee for five Academy Awards, Francis Power, post-production supervisor on Judas and the Black Messiah, nominated for six Oscars, and Blair McClendon, editor for The Assistant, a winner of four festival awards and a New York Film Critics Award.
Eli Lederberg will moderate. He is a recent graduate of Parsons School of Design. While in college, he had internships at A24, MATTE Projects and other New York post-production companies. He is currently a post-production assistant on the Amazon Studios series Outer Range.
