About Moviola Post
Moviola Post, is an independently owned, provider of editing systems, facility space and technical support services. In 1919 we provided film editors with the first machine for motion picture editing. Since then we have evolved into a leader in the post-production industry. We have continued to provide television and movie makers with the tools they need to tell their story. We deliver our systems to our client’s locations and we also invite our clients to utilize our facility space. We have production and post-production facilities in Hollywood, Santa Monica and Burbank. Our clients include the major, cable & streaming networks, the studios and independent production companies.
In the early sixties Joe Paskal, who at that time was a successful film editor for MGM Studios, stepped in as the new owner of Moviola. At this time he reinvented Moviola and took the company into digital age by embracing the video based edit systems. With Joe’s wisdom, knowledge and instincts he transformed and created the Moviola Post of today, which continues to be a leading full service Post-Production editorial company. Randy Paskal has continued to keep Moviola on a path that allows both our clients and employees to thrive. Additionally, Randy is responsible for bringing Filmtools and Pro Video Coalition into the Moviola family.
Through our sister companies we offer additional ways for our clients to accomplish their professional and personal goals. In an effort to help our clients invest in their future Moviola’s Education Center opened. Moviola’s Education Center is an established training center that offers professionals training on production and post production topics. Our ProVideo Coalition website is a place that allows the industry’s best to share knowledge with one another. Its PVCNews.com helps our clients keep up on the ever evolving technology related to TV and Film Production. Another resource that is a part of our family is Filmtools. Filmtools has been serving the Hollywood community as a local go-to destination for creatives looking to source production equipment.
