About the Author

Andy Beach was a video geek who got into this business after starting in the postproduction world. He quickly realized that making video look good was hard and was worth spending time to learn to do better and to pass that knowledge on to others. His career took him to the startup world, where he built encoders and live streaming tools for a living, and eventually to his role at Microsoft, where he works with a large-scale commercial media infrastructure.

Aaron Owen got his start in live television and then continued his career in commercial postproduction, playing a key role in transforming Phoenix Editorial (now Bonfire Labs) from a three-suite boutique editorial companyinto a full-fledged facility. Leveraging his vast advertising and high-end corporate experience, he founded Cinematiq in 2012 with the goal of bringing high-end postproduction techniques to filmmakers everywhere.
