Page 3 of 43 2 POST JULY/AUG 2019 EDITOR'S NOTE n recent months, I have been using this space to call attention to our online content — and even more so with this issue. We've got a ton of editorial that wouldn't fit into our print issue, so for those who enjoy digital delivery, you're sure to get your fix. Each summer, Post publishes a "Music Videos" feature, where we look at some of the recent work being done for high-profile artists — like Miley Cyrus for example — as well as up-and- coming indies. There's coverage beginning on page 24, but I also invite you to the Post Website, where you can view all of the videos mentioned, as well as numerous others not found in the magazine. In each case, the producers were challenged with representing the artists' vision while working under tight timelines and budgets. They are all cases for being resourceful in production and post. Our "Summer Movies" coverage continues online with details of MPC's work on Dark Phoenix, as well as Dneg's work on Men in Black: International. Both were lead VFX studios on their re- spective films. Linda Romanello has a special report on the VFX featured in Marvel: Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., while Karen Moltenbrey takes an in-depth look at the visual effects in Game of Thrones' final season. Eric Carney, founder of previs studio The Third Floor, shares his insight on the business, the studio's work — including GOT — and on advancing next-level content-making through pre- vis, virtual production and immersive planning. Kathleen Maher has a report on motion graphics, titled "Breaking Barriers with Motion Design." The piece looks at the "invisible art" of animated graphics, which sometimes goes unnoticed by audiences, disappearing into the content. Post caught up with Technicolor colorist Doug Delaney, who reflects on his recent work grad- ing Captain Marvel. Delaney came on-board late in the post process, but still had to make sure Captain Marvel's well-established color scheme was maintained, as well as ensure consistency from shot to shot. He shares his experience grading with his Baselight system. And Adam Dolniak details his career path, which led him to his current position as head of picture at Splice. He also discusses some of the current trends he's seeing as a top colorist. always hear how slow business is over the summer — with people taking vacations, companies seemingly holding off on any major decisions until the fall, etc. Here at Post, things seem busier than ever. We've been running in circles trying to cover the summer box office releases — with our continued "Summer Movies" coverage starting on page 14 with ex- tended features on The Lion King and Toy Story 4. Plus, Iain Blair delivers director David Leitch's thoughts on his new film, the first Fast & Furious spin off, Hobbs and Shaw, in Director's Chair on page 12. Online, the coverage continues with Dark Phoenix, Men in Black: International and more. The summer months are also when streaming is at its highest, with offerings from Netflix, Amazon and Hulu…as well as premium channels like HBO, Starz and Showtime. While Game of Thrones has ended, you can still catch the Emmy-nominated series On Demand on HBO and read about the final season's outstanding visual effects work from Karen Moltenbrey, editor of Posts's sister publication, CGW. Summer wouldn't be summer here at Post without our annual "Music Videos" feature, pre- sented by our own Marc Loftus. Here, starting on page 24, Loftus looks at music videos from Miley Cyrus, Robyn, Childish Gambino, Gloryhammer and Losers Club. I got in on the action, too, speaking with Timber creative director/partner Kevin Lau about the studio's work for the steamy Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello Señorita music video. As an added bonus, Post is also featuring a special section on AR/VR technology, on page 28, with stories from Disguise, Felix & Paul and The Artery. The issue is jam-packed with goodies — so, check out the offerings here and also visit us online ( for additional movies, music, news and more.
