    Post Break 9 - The Hidden World of Sound Mixing

    POST BREAK- The People Behind the Board: Revealing the Hidden World of Sound Mixing   For the 9th in our PNYA POST BREAK series - this week we jump into the world of Sound Mixing with a lineup of award winning panelists to give us an overview of this hidden and mysterious art form. Each from a different background and entry point, the conversation will cover the pathways and challenges of getting into the field, navigating the current remote process, and thoughts on creating opportunities to foster a more diverse talent pool.   POST BREAK- The People Behind the Board: Revealing the Hidden World of Sound Mixing Thursday, June 18th at 4pm on Zoom   PANELISTS: Andy Kris, Re-Recording Mixer, Supervising Sound Editor Andy has been working in the New York sound community for the better part of 25 years. He made the move to NY right after college where he found an internship at Good Machine, and a front row seat to the independent film explosion of the 90s. That led to the post production facility, Spin Cycle Post, where he was able to be a part of the digital post production revolution which kickstarted his career in sound post. He is forever grateful to have worked with many of the legends in the industry at a multitude of NY facilities, including: C5, Good Edit, Gun for Hire, Goldcrest Post, Sound One, Postworks, Sixteen19, Harbor Sound, and Warner Brothers NY. Recently, Andy has been navigating his greatest technological challenge, mixing and delivering television shows at the kitchen table with a laptop and headphones while trying to share internet bandwidth with his kids’ school Zoom classes. Glenfield Payne, Sound Supervisor/Mixer Glenfield has been working in Post Production sound since 1992. He’s been lucky to work with such amazing directors as The Coen Brothers, Spike Lee, Jim Jarmusch, Lodge Kerrigan, Amy Seimetz and Cary Fukunaga to name a few. While he mainly works on feature films he has done quite a bit of television these past few years. He also really loves when he gets the opportunity to work on documentaries. He has branched out from an FX editor, to a supervising sound editor and re-recording mixer. He still feels that it’s better than working for a living. Chris Chae, Sound Supervisor/Mixer Grew up in Queens - attended Ithaca College and graduated from their Television Radio - Audio Production program. I always was determined on becoming a mixer - originally thought I would go into the music industry - but I got involved in post sound and discovered what a re-recording mixer was and it all clicked - hence turning my focus towards becoming a re-recording mixer. I had started off in NY as an intern at Soundtrack - due to some great luck of opportunities and support from the senior editors and mixers - I had become one of the editors and mixers on staff and remained there for several years and recently made the transition to freelance. Recent projects I’ve mixed are Country Music by Ken Burns - Never Too Late (Dir. Michael Lembeck). Currently I’m supervising and mixing - a film by Billy Crystal called Here Today and been working with Ken Burns’ UNUM team on their shorts for the web.   Julienne Guffain, Sound Designer/Mixer With over a decade of experience, Virginia native Julienne Guffain has worked in every capacity of Audio post production, from Foley to Sound Design, Stereo to ATMOS and across a wide range of film, commercial and branded projects. Her passion for Audio comes from the nuanced ability to breath life into the flat image. Having worked at boutique shops like Hobo Audio, to leading the sound department at Crew Cuts, Julienne is now a part of the award winning Sonic Union team. She's worked with top clients such as Urban Decay, NBA, and Cadillac. MODERATOR: Brian Bowles, Dialogue & ADR Supervision Brian Bowles has collaborated with Bill Condon, the Safdie Brothers, Jim Jarmusch, and m

    Post Break: Crafty Apes in Space - Breaking Down the VFX on Netflix's 'Space Force' For the 8th in our PNYA POST BREAK series - this week we speak with visual effects studio Crafty Apes about the work they did on Netflix's new hit show, 'Space Force.' They will give a breakdown on the most challenging shots, discuss how they collaborated with the filmmakers on the show, and talk about the differences between working on a streaming show vs cable or film, the visual effects process and more.    POST BREAK: Crafty Apes in Space - Breaking Down the VFX on Netflix's 'Space Force' Thursday, June 11th at 4pm on Zoom Check out the TRAILER for 'Space Force'   PANELISTS: Jason Sanford, VFX Producer/Crafty Apes Co-Founder Sanford, a Santa Barbara native, grew up playing competitive tennis, but it didn’t take long for his dreams to beckon, and Jason headed to UCLA to study theatre. Soon after, his love of the theatrical took him to The American Conservatory Theatre in San Francisco, where he pursued further study in acting and writing. While there, he met mentor Anna Deavere Smith, who continues to inspire him to expand his knowledge of his craft, and to always think outside of the box. He would later go on to help found Crafty Apes, with credits as a VFX producer on films including Ant-Man and the Wasp, John Wick 2, and La La Land. Brandon Nelson, VFX Supervisor, Crafty Apes Brandon Nelson hails from the sticky, gator-ridden lands of the Southeast and grew up on a steady diet of 80s movies from his father’s masking-tape-labeled VHS film library. That early understanding of the importance of the visual arts led him to eventually pursue a higher education in the field at Savannah College of Art and Design, taking every class and obtaining every degree offered in visual effects and animation. Today Brandon is an accomplished artist and supervisor; an alumnus of Rhythm and Hues and Method Studios. He cites the movie Hackers and the pink and teal Solo Jazz pattern as chief amongst his artistic influences. His list of credits include Fast & Furious, Life of Pi, Captain America: Civil War, Avengers: Infinity War, and too many talking animal movies to name.   Jabber Raisani, Consulting VFX Supervisor for Netflix  Jabbar Raisani began his film career at the age of 17 working at a Visual Effects studio in San Antonio. In 2004 he moved to LA to work at Stan Winston Studio where he was the CG Supervisor on projects including Iron Man and Fantastic 4.
