“NYC post-production success stories."

Employment in NYC’s post-production industry continues to grow at a phenomenal rate. Our guests at this panel are five post-production pros with diverse backgrounds. We'll discuss what each panelist does and how they’ve grown their business and career in film and TV. We’ll also break down how the Post New York Alliance is a great way to find work in post, as evidenced by several of our panelist’s experiences.


Kim Hylan

Kim Hylan began her career as a staff editor in the early nineties, cutting on both linear and nonlinear systems. At the time she was one of a handful of African American women editors in the industry. She worked diligently to build her skills as an editor including configuring edit rooms and troubleshooting equipment. After the four years as a staff editor, she decided to freelance, which she has done for the past twenty one years and continues to do until this day. As an offline editor she has worked on numerous formats such as corporate, documentary, and sports news. She has also on-lined and color corrected several TV series and documentaries. Her clients have included, East Coast Digital, IIL, Atlas Media, New York Life, MTV, and SportsNet. She has been a mentor to many and continues to learn herself. Currently she is producing her own web series which focuses on her other passions, animal welfare and the environment. She is also writing her second screenplay in her favorite genres, fantasy and science fiction.

Recently Blue Table did all sound and color for To Dust, starring Matthew Broderick, which won the Audience Award and Best New Narrative Director Award at the Tribeca Film Festival.

“PNYA has been an invaluable resource in my career in scripted film/TV. It helped provide indispensable learning and networking opportunities that would have otherwise not been available to me when I was first starting out in post. In short, I would not be where I am today if it were not for PNYA.“
