Each innovation to the ways that we consume television and film creates new problems for the people in that industry to creatively solve. For freelance colorist and finishing editor Mike Nuget and Director of Technology for PostWorks Matt Schneider, that means the workflow for every project looks slightly different.
Mike and Matt joined the MarketScale Sports & Entertainment podcast to explain how 4K and other new technologies have changed the way they do their jobs and talked about some of the new software that’s making their lives easier.
“People think that files are easier because you can just drag and drop them,” Mike says. “If the camera guy two years ago who shot something didn’t label the files right, then two years later when it gets into my room it’s chaos.”
Matt and Mike talk about the challenges presented with each project and the increasingly blurred lines between the creatives and the post-production experts.
