Career summary

July 2020 – Jan 2022
Grain Media
Role: Post Production Supervisor

James explains….My most recent role was 18 months as the post supervisor for Grain Media, overseeing delivery of several projects with a variety of workflows and embracing the new found challenges of remote editing! This was good experience to say the least. Things gradually settled back into a more conventional in-house Avid offline set-up across a few suites (with the occasional Adobe-based project), with us sorting turnover for external post. The nature of some content meant some very tight deadlines and occasional legal changes, meaning I had to further develop my ability to adapt and modify plans and included very regular comms and back forth with our post houses. Additionally, we had US-based GFX talent and co-producers on Convergence (for Netflix) so good planning and workflow was a must! My time at Grain involved working with shoots/rushes coming back from all over the world and in some quite tricky pandemic circumstances; I couldn’t be more proud to have been part of this set-up and the internal team dealt with every challenge fantastically. I have done more than a share of post delivery paperwork in this time too…
