Jordan Schinkel has been named the new Director of Northern Operations for Stratagem Post-Production.

Officials say Schinkel brings 20 years of experience to the role and will be situated in North Bay to service, grow and strengthen the company’s partnerships, and to build upon the growing demand for production and post-production services in northern Ontario.

“We continue to see the largest growth of film and television production outside of traditional markets, which makes it the perfect time to strengthen the foundation of Post-Production services in Northern Ontario,” says Schinkel. “At the foundation of this industry are the dedicated people who work hard to create quality content and tell their stories. We are excited to be able to provide infrastructure, resources and highly-skilled talent, so they can achieve their visions right here in the north.”

Part of Schinkel’s role will be to work with Canadore College as the two have an existing partnership. Schinkel will supervise the exclusive operations of the College’s 5,000 square foot post-production complex, including a Dolby ATMOS 4K Theatre. He will continue to collaborate with Canadore College to enhance academic training, as well as play a role in the design and development of other post-production facilities and services to broaden capacity for an industry that has grown exponentially in northern Ontario over the past several years.

“We are excited to have Jordan join the Stratagem-Canadore Post-Production initiative. His experience and commitment will expand the capabilities of our post-production facility; and benefit the entire industry as we continue to add resources to support the television and movie industry in the North,” says George Burton, President of Canadore College.

Officials say Schinkel brings industry experience from working at some of Canada’s premier production houses. He began his career at CTV Southwestern Ontario working his way through technical operations, before settling in Toronto as a freelance editor and post-production consultant. He gained industry recognition as a Post Supervisor and workflow specialist on shows for CBC, Discovery and Food Network Canada, and was Manager of Factual Post-Production, East Coast for eOne Entertainment.  Most recently, Jordan was the Managing Post-Supervisor at Guru Animation Studio, overseeing content delivery to industry leaders including Netflix, Disney and CBC Kids.

“We are excited to be able to offer post-production services to our clients as part of the Stratagem Rx’s suite of services, and to be an active partner with Canadore College in the expansion of Ontario’s Northern production hub,” says Alex Lalonde, COO of Stratagem Rx, the parent company of Stratagem Post-Production. “Jordan’s many years of experience in post-production will be a formidable asset to Stratagem Post-Production, Stratagem Rx, Canadore College, and most notably to the film and TV industry already flourishing in Ontario’s north.”
