“The Deluxe Toronto Postproduction Mentorship was a fantastic place to be because I got the opportunity to see the step-by-step postproduction process of a variety of projects, from indie shorts to well-known television series and features. I am so thankful to have gotten the opportunity to be mentored through Deluxe by such a welcoming, helpful, talented, and friendly team. I am so excited to take all of these useful new things I’ve learned about the postproduction process and apply it to my own career! Thank you WIFT-T and Deluxe!”
