From the panel description:
“Implemented as an expedient response to the pandemic, remote work has become a commonplace and perhaps long-term way of conducting business for many post-production companies. In the next edition of Post Break, the free webinar series from Post New York Alliance (PNYA), a panel of industry experts will look beyond the technology to examine the broader implications of this new mode of work.
“What are the pros and cons of managing teams remotely? How is this trend changing the role of the post-production supervisor and other members of the team? As remote connections make it easier to collaborate with partners around the country and around the world, what effect might it have on local tax credits? What data security issues need to be addressed as teams move to the cloud?”
