Infrastructure and technology are important factors in creating a successful post-production house. But its true success is based primarily on the quality of its staff, and we’re proud to celebrate ours.
Post-production is complex and demanding. Finding solutions comes naturally to our team. Thanks to our extensive expertise in the field and mastery of the trade, we’re entrusted with projects that meet the industry’s highest standards.
Isabelle Gratton and Julien Masson have co-managed PMT since 2007, and they share the same values and passion for entrepreneurship. It’s a great example of the synergy and equity between a man and woman at a company.
Going at their own pace, these two independent thinkers stand out from the pack, paving a unique path for PMT. Innovative, attentive, bold, agile and respected in their field, they understand the importance of striving to be the best.
Coordination and project management
The project management and coordination group is a pillar at PMT. Each member of our team has extensive expertise and a thorough understanding of the various post-production processes. Our coordinators are skilled at bringing out the best in their teams, and managing conflicts, in addition to being expert negotiators. They oversee the technical aspects and processes for every production. Each team member is responsible for a project from start to finish.
Our team of assistant editors is made up of people with tremendous value. They work day and night, seven days a week, and their contribution to post-production is essential. Each assistant editor is responsible for carrying out the preliminary work for editing sessions, colouring, mixing, video description and closed captioning while carefully respecting each project’s specifications.
PMT is without a doubt the only post-production house to have editors and assistant editors who’ve been on staff for several decades. Following the evolution of editing and technologies over the years has allowed them to adapt to the multiple technological production changes resulting from television channels that are now broadcast on multiple platforms. As well, their close working relationship with directors is a precious asset.
Close captioning and video description technicians
Inserting closed captioning and video description is more complex than it appears. Our high quality standards ensure that in addition to using the best available software, we work with experienced and meticulous teams to ensure the content we are entrusted with is faithfully adapted and accessible to the widest audience possible.
At PMT, from reception to accounting, each employee has direct contact with our clients. It’s a big responsibility. Every member of our team is required to serve our clients with respect, professionalism, discretion and a cheerful disposition.
