Post New York Alliance (PNYA) announced the next edition of its free webinar series, Post Break, on Thursday, November 12th. The event will examine what post-production managers need to know about visual effects. Powerhouse VFX producer Leslie Lerman and VFX executive producer Ryan Cunningham provide full, hands-on advice on making and deploying VFX for features and television. They describe the role of the VFX manufacturer and advise post-production managers who should produce visual effects themselves.
Moderated by Ben Baker, Vice President of Studio Services at HBO, the discussion will provide critical insights for anyone involved in delivering high quality visual effects on time and on budget.
The free event is scheduled for Thursday, November 12th at 4:00 p.m. (SUMMERTIME). After the webinar, participants will have the opportunity to join small virtual breakout groups for discussion and networking.
