Stephen R. Post
Stephen Post was the eldest son of Robert Post, a former music editor for Disney.  After graduating from Notre Dame High School in the San Fernando Valley, he enlisted in the Navy in 1968 and completed two tours in Vietnam on the USS Rainier ammunition ship as a Boatswain’s Mate.  After spending a year and a half in Kodiak, Alaska as a Master at Arms, he returned to California to follow in his father’s footsteps in the film industry.

Stephen started out in the cutting room as a film editor at CBS Television Center in 1972––the same year he joined the Editors Guild.  Seven years later, he was hired at Universal Studios as an editor, and recently had celebrated his 30th anniversary there. 

He played an instrumental role in how movies are viewed in the home today.  During the introduction of VHS back in the 1980s, Stephen played a prominent role in the development of how film would be transferred to video.  Considering that film-transfer devices did not exist back then, he worked with others to pioneer the film-to-tape transfer process, utilizing a “black box” that enabled a camera to record directly off the film, incorporating color correction and panning-and-scanning in the process.  He used his technical and editorial background to develop what would eventually become the film mastering process.  He also utilized his technical expertise to help the industry advance as it migrated from standard-definition VHS to DVD and then to high-definition resolution.  

Over the years, Stephen worked with such prominent directors as Steven Spielberg, Martin Scorsese, Brian De Palma, Ron Howard, Sydney Pollack and many others as he both supervised current theatrical releases and re-mastered the Universal library.  He built a trusted and respected relationship with the creative talent by maintaining the filmmakers’ intent while creating video masters that would be used for distribution throughout the world. 

Stephen is survived by his wife Kathy, their three children—Jennifer, Erin and Matthew—and grandson Ryan.
