The Hollywood Post Alliance (HPA) has announced that it will present Leon Silverman with one of the organization’s highest honors, the HPA Lifetime Achievement Award. Given at the discretion of the HPA Board of Directors and a select committee, this award is presented to an individual whose contributions have brought about significant change in the field of post production. In 2002, Silverman spearheaded a coalition of post production executives to help launch the Hollywood Post Alliance. Originally envisioned as a place where individuals and companies would share information, build a community voice, and provide education, the HPA quickly established its role as an important trade organization. Known for its celebration of the creative community in its HPA Awards and the highly respected HPA Technology Retreat the group is currently in the process of forming an alliance with SMPTE.
Silverman will receive the award at the HPA Awards gala on November 12, 2015, at the Skirball Center in Los Angeles, California. (For more information on the event, please see the listing on the DCS Calendar of Events).
