Honoring Excellence in Post
October 30, 2013 (Los Angeles, CA) Hollywood Post Alliance® – the trade association for the post production community – has announced a stellar industry lineup of presenters for the HPA Awards next week. The event will unfold at The Skirball Cultural Center in Los Angeles, CA, on November 7th, 2013. The organization also announced that ticket sales are well underway and the event is expected to sell out.
The HPA Awards were conceived to recognize the achievements of those individuals who work behind the scenes, with ingenuity and creativity, to create motion pictures, commercials and television programming. The HPA Awards are the unofficial launch of Hollywood’s awards season, which culminates in the Oscars. Honors will be given in 12 craft categories covering motion pictures, commercials and television.
An all-star group of presenters will be on hand, including Todd London, SVP, VFX & Post Production Feature Films at Walt Disney Studios, Salvatore Totino, ASC, AIC (Frost/Nixon, Cinderella Man, Any Given Sunday), Stephen Rivkin, A.C.E. (Avatar, Pirates of the Caribbean trilogy), Dauri Chase (co-producer of the Newsroom, Post Producer at HBO Television) and Kevin Tent, A.C.E. (Nebraska, The Descendents, Sideways.) Former HPA Lifetime Achievement Winner Ted Gagliano, President of Post-production at 20th Century Fox, will be on hand to present honors in the visual effects categories. Special honors will be bestowed during the evening, including the HPA Engineering Excellence Award sponsored by NAB Show. The Charles S. Swartz Award for Outstanding Contribution in the Field of Post Production will be presented to Avid by Oscar-winning editor William Goldenberg, A.C.E. (Argo, Zero Dark Thirty, Transformers: Dark of the Moon). Louis Hernandez, Jr, President and CEO of Avid, will accept the award on behalf of the company.
The HPA Awards, held at the Skirball since their inception in 2006, begin with a pre-show reception, followed by a 90-minute awards show, and end with a celebratory cocktail party. The gala evening is an engaging and community centered event that brings out the entire post production community.
