After working 11 years in the entertainment industry, I saw a need for a place that could help filmmakers navigate the complex and constantly evolving post-production process, hence THE POST LAB was born. Every single film produced today is unique in how it’s crafted, no two workflows are the same because of constantly changing camera sensors, file formats, transcoding software, dailies solutions, and the list goes on and on and on. THE POST LAB aims to educate filmmakers and connect them to professionals and cost-effective solutions that can make post-production a pleasurable experience.

Geared towards the independent filmmaker, THE POST LAB’s mission is to become a repository of extremely helpful information — case studies, workflow examples, interviews with filmmakers about their creative and technical processes in post-production — that will demystify some of the technical aspects of post-production, and inspire creative solutions. In addition to the resources available on this site, THE POST LAB offers individualized assistance to filmmakers based on the specific needs of a project. We can help you navigate all the technical aspects of your production, and implement end-to-end post solutions through delivery. Whether it’s a short film, documentary, or your first feature, THE POST LAB can find ways to save you money in post, and save you time so that you can focus on what’s really important to you.
