Brendan Hermes – Executive Producer, Radical Media / Outpost Digital 

Brendan Hermes is Executive Producer of Outpost Digital, RadicalMedia’s in-house post-production company. With a career in both production and post production that spans more than 20 years, and included credits with just about every major network and streamer, Brendan has grown with the industry and its expanding technical workflows.

As the head of RadicalMedia’s post production department, and its 14-18 projects a year, Brendan has seen his share of challenges. From analog deliveries to 4K HDR, and production challenges in the 8K space, visual effects and animation, he has shepherded success by learning through experience. 

Titles like Gary Gulman: The Great Depresh (HBO) in the comedy space, Abstract: The Art of Design in the docu-series space (Netflix), The Longest Wave in the Feature Documentary space (RedBull), and a production career in Live TV and Awards Shows help keep Brendan at the top of his game.

An avid trail runner and ultra-marathoner, Brendan also enjoys cooking, mountain biking, and traveling. When he’s not coaching softball and baseball teams for his kids, he manages the online production portal which he founded that provides over 50,000 industry professionals a free outlet to seek work and to staff productions.
