New York-based Harbor Picture Company has added Kevin Vale as its director of motion picture post production. He has over 51 feature film credits and a decade in the film industry.
Prior to joining Harbor, Vale worked as a digital intermediate producer on a range of feature films, including Triple 9 (2015), Freeheld (2015), Noah (2014) and Lee Daniels’ The Butler (2013). Vale was also responsible for overseeing the DI post on Wes Anderson’s Oscar-nominated film Moonrise Kingdom in 2012 as well as Darren Aronofsky’s Oscar-winning Black Swan in 2010.
“His experience with high-end feature films is a perfect fit for Harbor right now. Kevin will be the driving force behind the picture post department and his skills will be a great addition to all of our post-production services,” says Zak Tucker, president, Harbor Picture Company.
In his role as director of motion picture post, Vale will focus on creating seamless transitions with the array of services offered within Harbor’s DI department including transcoding, conform, VFX, color and deliverables.
“Recently, Harbor has also become the largest post-sound facility in New York, and I’m looking forward to being able to deliver on projects where all post services are offered here at Harbor,” says Vale.
Vale knows Harbor well, having previously collaborated with Harbor’s head colorist Joe Gawler on projects like Darjeeling Limited (2007), as well as working with Harbor’s head of post-production Darrell Smith, on Lee Daniel’s The Butler (2013).
