shane burrell (final post)

colour grade and finishing post

Shane is the founder and chief colourist for Final Post, a specialist finishing facility based in Newcastle. The heart of Final Post is all about championing and supporting filmmakers through world class tools and facilities which may be out of reach in a traditional sense. Shane aims for a perfect trifecta of ultimate creativity, technical excellence and financial flexibility when it comes to partnering with each production.

 

Not only is Shane a die-hard optimist and artist, but a strategic thinker. This has led him and the team at Final Post down the path of birthing Agile Post Pathways. This framework seeks to assist and guide productions from an early phase of development through the many hidden land-mines which have a negative effect on the final product.

So, with his beautiful family in tow, a world class facility and a love for surfing before colour sessions, Shane brings a different kind of energy into the world of post.
