There will be some changes this year in how DigipostÂ operates. Instead of passing a project from one station to the next, everyone will be organized into a few small teams to take on a whole project collectively. Senior Editor Nick Jones explains theÂ changesÂ and why theyâ€™re good for both Digipost and clients:
As Senior Editor at Digipost, whatâ€™s the most important part of your role?
My role is to mentor and nurture our young team of talented editors.
In just over a year, we have members of our team working with international brands, agencies and directors and I really enjoy knowing that my team is developing and becoming more and more successful.
Whoâ€™s on your team and what are their jobs? (Name & role)
My team consists of Quang, who is a very talented storytelling editor, Laura Knieling who is our brilliant colourist (and occasional editor), Leo who is our star junior editor and mgfx guru and Duc who is also a upcoming junior editor and IT chap.
What do you think the advantage is of changing the workflow at Digipost from â€œassembly-lineâ€ style to small teams that take on a project together?
As the industry has changed and moved away from the traditional ways of doing post, we realise that artists need multiple skillsets so that we can work effectively in a dynamic and fluid environment.
Also, our team spirit is very strong. We have a formidable work ethic and a high standard of workmanship. In essence, a strong creative pride. As we are a small team, our work is representative of us all, so we dead-set on making it the best that we can.
Each of us are constantly developing new areas of skills and abilities, so that as each project comes in we can offer more to our client.
What are you most looking forward to in 2017 at Digipost?
Iâ€™m looking forward to taking on more and more projects. We also want to integrate a wider skillset in our team, so eventually we can handle all aspects of post production within one unit.
