The Post New York Alliance (PNYA) will feature the second part in its series on entrepreneurship in the post-production industry in the next edition of Post Break, its free webinar series. A trio of pros, with experience as freelancers and business owners, will reveal how they launched their careers and found success, and offer advice to others seeking to follow in their footsteps. With pandemic measures easing, new opportunities in the post-production industry are on the rise, making this a very timely session.

Following the webinar, attendees will have an opportunity to join small, virtual breakout groups for discussion and networking.
