We’re dedicated to fully engaging in the creative post-production journey, from set to screen. Harnessing cutting-edge technology, we empower our clients to shape their creative visions right from the outset of the post-production process.

Thom has been an integral part of Harbor since joining, contributing significantly to our rapid growth and success in both our Windsor and London studios. With his track record of delivering tent-pole films and high-end episodic projects for the largest studios in the world, complemented by his dedication and strategic vision, Thom is well-positioned to lead our organization towards greater success and growth. I look forward to continuing working with Thom in his new role.
