Samantha Uber has joined Goldcrest Post as conform artist/manager of workflow services and senior finishing editor. Uber will work with film and television clients in designing customized workflows to manage projects from the set through delivery. She will also act as a hands-on finishing editor. She arrives from Deluxe Entertainment, New York, where her credits included the series High Maintenance, The Knick and Mr. Robot, and the features Hustlers, A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood and The Goldfinch.
Goldcrest Post managing director Domenic Rom says that he is excited to have Uber join his team, having previously worked with her at Deluxe and Technicolor. “Sam is exceptionally creative and technically adept; she invests herself fully in her clients’ needs,” he said. “Our clients will benefit immensely from her experience and insights. She will help them define a smooth path that ease their projects through post and meet their delivery requirements.”
Uber says she looks forward to working with clients in pre-production. “I want to help producers, directors and cinematographers at the beginning to avoid problems and delays in the end,” she notes. “Productions have many workflow options, making the right choices leads to a more streamlined conform. It can save time and money, and result in a better project.”
Uber has been a senior digital intermediate/on-line editor at Deluxe since 2013. Her background also includes three years at Technicolor and three years at PostWorks. Other notable credits include the HBO series Boardwalk Empire and Girls, Wes Anderson’s Moonrise Kingdom, Spike Lee’s Red Hook Summer and the HBO mini-series Mildred Pierce. She also has experience in documentaries, reality TV and shorts. “My role combines everything that interests me,” she says. “I love working with filmmakers and achieving their projects’ full potential.”
In describing what brought her to Goldcrest, Uber cited Rom’s presence and a dynamic environment that, she believes, makes the facility a magnet for high-quality television and film projects. “Domenic has done a wonderful job in building a team and providing them with the resources they need to produce top tier work,” she says. “Next year is going to be a great year for Goldcrest Post.”
