While a film student at the School of Visual Arts, Evan Schechtman had an unfortunate incident with a Moviola. The bloodletting, coupled with the frustration at the restraints of modern technology, led him to think about the future of post production.
In the years that followed, Evan became an expert in desktop technology and in 1998, founded Outpost Digital, which fast became known for its innovative use of next generation media technologies. In 2000, Outpost was acquired by bicoastal/international @radical.media and Evan became radical’s Chief Technology Officer, while still heading up Outpost Digital’s New York office, as well as their new facility in Santa Monica. Over the years, Evan has built a core group of people who share his creative vision, as well as his passion for technology.
Outpost has done extensive work in broadcast, film and commercials, working with such networks as ABC, CBS, MTV, VH1, ESPN, and the Food Network, agencies like Ogilvy & Mather, BBH, and Weiden+Kennedy, as well as Steven Soderberg, Gus van Sant and Danny deVito.
Outpost is constantly evolving with the each new technological stride and has committed itself to being at the forefront of cutting-edge technologies and superlative post-production service.
