Summary

My normal days as post-production supervisor are between 10 to 16 hours, so being long days as they are, I find gratification and motivation in creating processes and workflow and see how they work smoothly.

Post Production Supervisor Fashion's A Drag (Season 1)

.-During the COVID-19 pandemic lockdown, in addition to the typical task as a post-production supervisor, I also created a post-production workflow that could accommodate editors working remotely under a very tight deadline. 2 shows of 6 minutes each had to be shot, edited & mastered in 2 days. The workflow also includes transferring high res footage to the editors who are located in different states in the U.S. Using this workflow, we were able to deliver 10 shows a week.
