Student to Pro (POST Magazine)

POST Magazine has an interesting article that profiles five post production professionals about their transition from student life to an 8-to-5 work schedule.  These young professionals discuss landing their current jobs, reflect on the adjustments they made, and the steps they walked to get there - from networking in Hollywood to the value of internships, people skills and luck. 

Of those profiled, Adam Greenberg shares his account of how he worked his way up from summer intern to his current position at New York City's Post Factory.

In addition, Chad Galster lends a fresh perspective on editing today and how he's applying what he learned at USC's Avid lab to editing the second season of MTV's reality series, The Hills. On why he still uses Avid's Media Composer software:

"The reason being it's [Media Composer] a workhorse - it's incredibly stable. We're tied into a Unity system with between eight and 10 of us editing the series at any given time."
