NEW YORK CITY— In the next edition of Post Break, Post New York Alliance’s free webinar series, Harbor Supervising Sound Editor/Re-Recording Mixer Damian Volpe and Re-Recording Mixer Rob Fernandez will discuss their longtime collaboration, workflows for Dolby Atmos and how Covid-19 has changed post-production sound forever.
