David Nieman

Post Production Supervisor | VFX Artist | Colorist

I'm an Ohio-born, New Hampshire-raised, artistic problem solver. 

While attending Emerson College in Boston, I worked as a manager in the school's digital production lab.  During my time at Emerson, I also led the school's student documentary club, Captured Emotion.  In 2015, I graduated with a degree in Film Production.  Following the move to Los Angeles I began working at Light Iron, a company specializing in post production workflow, color, and finishing.

In the fall of 2015, I came on board as the Head of Post-Production at Breakwater Studios.  I oversee all the technical elements of picture editing, sound, color, visual effects and finishing - shaping a seamless pipeline in the ever-accelerating world of post. 

My personal skill set focuses on compositing, color, finishing, file management, editorial workflow, and IT infrastructure.

I love the outdoors and spend as much time as possible hiking, skiing, climbing, and enjoying all the opportunities we have in Southern California.  My various cameras also join me on many of these trips (as seen in the photos on this site).  I'm also in love with my slowly growing guitar collection.
