    David Farley’s career in Feature Post Production began in 1996, when he worked as an assistant to the head of TriStar Pictures post production, Sol Lomita. When TriStar was shuttered, David moved over to Columbia Pictures, where he worked for Russ Paris and Jim Honoré for eight years on over 95 live-action theatrical features.

At Sony Pictures Animation, David was the post supervisor on Surf’s Up (Oscar nominated for Best Animated Movie), Open Season 2, and Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs. In 2010, after 14 years at Sony, David left to work on one of the crown jewels of DreamWorks Animation, Shrek, when he post supervised the 2D digital restoration and 3D stereo conversion of Shrek, Shrek 2, and Shrek the Third. Shortly after, David was post supervisor on Puss In Boots (Oscar nominated for Best Animated Movie) and Rise of the Guardians, the latter of which was the first theatrical feature to create both an 11.1 Auro mix as well as a Dolby Atmos mix. Recently, David was post production supervisor on How To Train Your Dragon 2 and is currently working on The Penguins of Madagascar, which is scheduled for
    wide release on November 26, 2014. You can email your questions to 123filmeasy@gmail.Follow us on Twitter @123Film

    Guest:John Smart/Film Clearance/2 Guns/Looper/Don Jon

    in Movies

    John Smart began working on feature film in the Art department while still in college at the University of New Mexico where he received a BFA in theater. After a number of years working on such films as The Big Easy, Heathers, and Barfly - he decided to teach in Los Angeles and at school for teens who’d gotten in trouble with drugs. He became known for bringing film industry professionals to the school as guest speakers and mentors. Establishing a relationship between the school and the local film and TV industry that lasted long after he was gone. When John returned to working on films he dove into legal clearances. He’s worked on a long list of projects including: The Good Lie, Don Jon, 2 Guns, Shopgirl, The Hot Flashes, Linsanity, Looper, Bullet To The Head and approximately 60 other films, TV shows and DVD games. He loves clearances because he can both assist in legally getting a production difficult items they may want or need for a project - but more importantly a Clearance administrator is one of the last firewalls a production has avoid legal action - and a copyright infringement claim can be lethal for a film. You can email your questions to 123filmeasy@gmail.Follow us on Twitter @123Film
