Post New York Alliance (PNYA) has announced the topic for its next Post Break free monthly video conference, which will take place this Thursday, October 29 at 4pm EDT. Titled Lessons Learned When Covid Hit: Post/Production Collaboration, it will feature the post-production team from the AMC/BBC America series NOS4A2 to talk about how they switched gears in order to finish the show’s second season during the COVID-19 lockdown.
Post was in full swing for the second season when the pandemic struck, so editorial and visual effects had to figure out how to continue without missing a beat. Joining moderator Lauren Ritchie, a 25-year VFX producer, will be Post Production Supervisor Shana Fischer Huber, Zoic Creative Director Nate Overstrom and AMC Networks VFX Producer Carly Wilson as they reveal how they did it and what they learned along the way. Moderating the discussion will be freelance VFX producer Lauren Ritchie.
