AT FINAL POST,
WE FOCUS ON THE FINISH

We seek agile and innovative ways to bring your project across the finish line for the best possible result. We are the defender of pixels and the guardian of beautiful frames. We love to partner with filmmakers to champion storytelling and invest in good ideas.

With facilities in sunny Newcastle, Final Post serves feature film, documentary, television series and short film. Big or small; good stories win our hearts.

Shane Burrell is passionate about partnering with filmmakers to achieve the very best possible finish for their production.

He often engages with producers long before the cameras roll, to design a workflow that sets a strong foundation for a cost effective and smooth post-production. Shane seeded Final Post’s ‘agile’ methodology in response to the growing need to have smarter workflows without compromising the end goal.

With 16 years experience, Shane has a strong and diverse production and post-production background and with strengths in creating systems and pathways for ‘coming up with the goods’ under any circumstance.

Chloe Brandstater

Chloe Brandstater

Colourist / Agile Supervisor

For Chloé, communicating through vision and the love for beautiful imagery is in her blood. Growing up with film canisters laying around the family home, and with both her father and grandfather being filmmakers, she could be found with camera in hand from a young age.

Completing a bachelor’s degree in communications, and over six years in the industry, Chloé's been hands-on from capture to final delivery, finding a passion for post-production. This is not only a love but represents a discipline and drive to respect the integrity of the DOP and Director’s intent.

Chloé has had significant experience working off scripts and outlines. She has developed a keen sense for narrative structure and achieving purposeful content while honing the technical rigour necessary to stay abreast of the rapidly changing landscape of post.
