New York-based full-service post house Harbor Picture Company has hired Corey Stewart as chief technology officer. He brings 20 years of industry experience to his role.
Stewart joins Harbor from Technicolor PostWorks New York, where he had served as chief engineer since 2008. During that time he designed and managed integration of a large-scale routing control system, created a KVM switching infrastructure to increase room flexibility and production, and managed engineering teams during acquisitions and management changes.
Prior to that role, Stewart held a number of jobs at the company, including online editor, Avid support technician and lead engineer. Earlier on in his career, Stewart attended the School of Visual Arts in New York where he studied film and video with an editorial concentration, taught film production classes and worked as an Adobe After Effects designer/assistant editor at Harvey’s Place. He has been credited as DI engineer on a variety of feature films and television shows. He is also a member of the HPA, SMPTE, Digital Cinema Technology and more.
“The reality of our new landscape of anywhere, anytime, any artist, has demanded that we continue to seek out new technologies and technologists to facilitate the type of unlimited access to creativity that clients are in search of,” says founder/president Zak Tucker. “Corey was the perfect candidate for this new position because he shares our vision and holistic approach to post — providing omnipresent support to clients, everywhere from on set to the point of delivery. The creative benefit of this type of seamless workflow is the collaboration fostered between picture and sound, and it’s only made possible by the types of technological advancements and workflows industry vets like Corey are implementing and innovating.”
Recent Harbor projects include work on Arrival, Beauty and the Beast and Showtime’s Billions.
