NEW YORK CITY— Following two sessions devoted to picture, Post Break, the free webinar series from Post New York Alliance (PNYA), will turn its attention to sound in the third and final installment in its series on editorial turnover. Harbor Picture Company Sound Editor Dan Timmons and award-winning Sound Supervisor Roman Chimienti will join moderator Ben Baker for an in-depth discussion of sound post-production and offer advice for assistant editors on how to guide projects through the final mix.

Scheduled for Thursday, March 17th at 4:00 EDT, Turnover to Sound | Part III, will provide assistant editors with the information they need to nail this crucial phase in post-production. It’s a not-to-be-missed session for anyone aspiring to work on motion picture or television projects in a New York editorial department. Register here.
