NEW YORK CITY— Career advancement in the highly-competitive world of post-production can be challenging. For the next edition of its popular weekly webinar series Post Break, Post New York Alliance is assembling a panel of up-and-coming and established industry professionals to share their secrets on moving up the ladder. The free event is slated for Thursday, August 13th at 4:00 p.m.

Post-production offers many personally- and financially-rewarding career opportunities, but the dynamic nature of the business means there are few tried-and-true paths to those dream jobs. Young career aspirants must rely on hard work, moxie, networking skills and resilience to gain that big promotion or new job. In this lively 1-hour session, successful editors, post-production supervisors and others will tell how they earned their big breaks and offer advice to others looking to follow in their footsteps.

Panelists include:

  • Gloria Tello, Assistant Editor, Lee Daniels’ The United States vs. Billie Holiday.
  • David Massachi, Assistant Editor/Editor, Foxcatcher, Allegiant, The Undoing.
  • Shelby Siegel, ACE, Editor, Paul Haggis’ In the Valley of Elah, Mike Nichols’ Charlie Wilson’s War, Ang Lee’s Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon and Brokeback Mountain, HBO’s The Jinx: The Life and Deaths of Robert Durst (Emmy Award: Outstanding Picture Editing for Nonfiction Programming).
  • Jamal Bilal, Post-Production Supervisor, The Deuce, Quantico, Tommy.
