Building a Sound Business: Independent Mixing in TV & Film Post
The announcement of Netflix’s Post Partner Program to create original content was an early signal that a boom was on the horizon for work in entertainment. In the years since, all the other major streaming services have started creating their own series and movies, as well, leading to an increased need for post-production services. Some audio engineers and producers saw this as an opportunity to leave the stability of full-time employment at larger post companies and begin working out of home studios, contracting through various studios, or opening independent post houses where they can enjoy increased flexibility and other benefits. In this panel, we’ll sit down with some of these audio professionals to discuss the shift toward independence and how it has benefitted their careers.
Panelists: Alexandra Fehrman, Independent; Alicia Hannan, Rawr Productions; Jeff Hannan, Rawr Productions.
