  • Greetings from LA. I”m looking for a forum to communicate with Post Production Supervisors & Associate Producers working on TV & feature films in Europe. Perhaps an industry organization, or an informal community of experts. I”d appreciate any guidance on this. Thanks everyone.

    Hi
    I run a corporate video production company in Manchester UK. I am from a broadcast background and was trained as an engineer at the BBC. I have done most jobs in the industry, maintenance, radio links, camera, sound, editing, telecine, vision control etc.
    I was the head of technical operations for Lime Pictures and have post production experience with Avid and Final Cut Pro. I am interested in new workflows (such as red cam) and new technology as well as delivering complete programmes to clients.
    I am a mentor in the industry.
    I welcome collaborations, especially those that are of interest and financially rewarding!
    You could set up a network on something like ning or other social network tools such as facebook, the groups could be by your invitation only to keep some quality control!

    Dear Maurice,
    It seems you have a fair selection of people willing to help but I’d like to add my name and business to the fold.

    Squaredog & Roundcat is a well trained organsation of people specialising in all aspects and stages of production. We have editing facilities in Bloomsbury (currently housing the post production for Tim Burton and his new film Alice in Wonderland) and offices in London and Aberdeen.

    I will be in LA filming in a couple of weeks and for a long spell in November if you’d like to meet to discuss what we can do for you here in the UK. Please feel free to call my personal phone on 07977173346 or the office in the meantime.

    Hi Maurice

    I’m not sure if I can help you but I am a Producer based in Brighton / London working on feature films. Currently I am completing post production on Dave Mckean’s “Luna” the follow up to “Mirrormask” the film we made for Sony Pictures through the Jim Henson Company.

    I am also involved in producing two further animated feature films that have just gone into pre-production through a London animation studio – Darkside Animation.

    http://www.dsanim.com

    In my opinion, and if you require any Digital Animation or Vis FX they are as good as the Creature Workshop and pride themselves on producing animation of the quality of Pixar at a fraction of the price.

    Best wishes
