This session rounds out the series by taking some of the concepts we're learned from scheduling and budgeting and applying them to the workflow.



Scripted Television:
Irene Burns, a two-time Emmy nominee, has been responsible for Post Producing the editing, music, visual effects and technical compliance of nearly 300 hours of television. Her work has been based primarily in the US, though she has also worked extensively in London and Budapest (note: she is very open to going back). Her work in comedy is known for side-splitting laughter on more than 100 episodes of “30 Rock” with Tina Fey and Alec Baldwin. She was thrilled to work on a pilot never (yet) aired called “The Joke Show,” among other hilarities. Her work on Dramas include notable projects such as HBO’s first episodic TV series, the ground-breaking series “Oz,”. Irene is grateful to have worked on the September 11th-inspired film “Strip Search” by Tom Fontana, directed by the legendary Sidney Lumet. Her post career began on the critically acclaimed “Homicide: Life on the Street”. There are two new series she is excited to begin very shortly. Please stay tuned.

Feature Film:
Jennifer Lane started her film career in editing, but quickly switched to post production supervision. As a freelance post-production supervisor, she has worked for Warner Brothers, Dreamworks Studios, The Walt Disney Company, Universal Pictures, Amazon and Focus Features among other studios. Some of her feature credits include “Into the Woods” (Rob Marshall), “Wonderstruck” (Todd Haynes) , “The Bourne Legacy” (Tony Gilroy), “Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close” and “The Reader” (Stephen Daldry), “The Adjustment Bureau” (George Nolfi), “Revolutionary Road” (Sam Mendes), “Doubt” (John Patrick Shanley), and “The Good Shepherd”(Robert De Niro). She has also worked on many independent films including “The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby: HIM and HER” (Ned Benson), “Secretary” (Steven Shainberg), “Hamlet” (Michael Almereyda), “Sidewalks of New York” (Edward Burns), “Trust the Man” (Bart Freundlich), and the documentary “Trekkies” (Roger Nygard). She recently completed working on “Mary Poppins Returns” (Rob Marshall) as the Associate Producer. Her next project is “Gemini Man” (Ang Lee) for Paramount Pictures and Skydance Media. Jennifer also serves as the Membership Director of the Post New York Alliance.

Scripted Television:
Brad Carpenter just finished producing his second season of USA's critically acclaimed “The Sinner,” starring Bill Pulman and Carrie Coon. In between seasons of “The Sinner,” Brad Produced Netflix's “The Good Cop,” starring Tony Danza and Josh Groban. His previous shows include HBO's buzz worthy “Vinyl,” with Executive Producers Martin Scorsese, Mick Jagger and Terence Winter, Showtime's “Nurse Jackie,” as well as HBO's “Boardwalk Empire,” “Bored to Death,” and “Sex and the City.” Brad is especially excited about his upcoming project this Fall, FX's limited series about Bob Fosse and Gwen Verdon, starring Sam Rockwell and Michelle Williams.

Unscripted Television
Brian Batka has over 14 years of post-production experience in New York. As a post-production supervisor, he has overseen more than 295 hours of content from offline through finishing and delivery. He has worked on a variety of non-scripted, food, and lifestyle shows for A&E, MTV, The Food Network, WEtv, Animal Planet, Discovery ID, and The Cooking Channel. Previously, he worked as a post coordinator on some notable feature documentaries, including Jonathan Demme's “Jimmy Carter: Man From Plains”" for Sony Pictures Classics, and “Pressure Cooker,” for Participant Media. For the last five years, Brian has post supervised “The First 48” for A&E, which follows active homicide investigations. Brian has been an active member of the Producers Guild for over 9 years. In June, he was elected to the AP Council Board of Delegates to represent the East Coast at the national level. Brian is also a scout leader for the Baden Powell Service Association (BPSA), where he puts his post organizing skills and Eagle Scout credentials to work teaching 4 and 5-year-olds about camping and crafting.

Feature Documentary
Matt Parker, an Emmy-nominated producer, was born and raised in Nashville, Tennessee, where his early love of film began with weekly Sunday trips to the movies with his dad. His latest narrative feature, directed by Pippa Bianco with A24, is still untitled and in post. Prior to that he produced three HBO documentaries, “Everything is Copy,” “Agnelli,” and “Swiped,” as well as “To the Night,” directed by Austrian director Peter Brunner, and indie features, “Approaching the Unknown” and “Five Nights in Maine,” as well as “Mother of George,” which premiered at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival, “Restless City,” “Higher Ground,” and “The Last Keepers.” He also co-produced “Beasts of the Southern Wild” and “Bachelorette.”
