BIOGRAPHY:


Paul Dougherty is an EMMY winning lifetime video career professional with four works in the Permanent Collection of The Museum of Modern Art (‘MoMA’). Dougherty has worked as an editor for each of the Network News divisions, along with CNN and the BBC. Additionally, he has free-lanced at over forty high-end video facilities originally as an on-line editor. Dougherty’s post-production experience spans from the earliest broadcast formats, to the inauguration of the present age: the launching of Avid Technology in New York City. He holds an MLIS and Archival Certificate from Queens College, augmented with electives from NYU’s Moving Image Archiving and Preservation Program.

Currently Dougherty is working part-time at the International Rescue Committee as video archivist and media manager of their QNAP server. Archival assignments before that include re-assessment of the ACLU video collection for their Centenary Anniversary in 2020. His Internship was at the Library for the Performing Arts, Lincoln Center to research and pre-process a Guggenheim Museum collection of 300+ videotapes from the “Works & Process” series for preservation.


In recent decades his work included a mix of editing & motion graphics, mostly for the corporate sector, specifically luxury and fashion. That then extended to include fine art, with several seasons of mini-documentaries for Gagosian Gallery. Artists featured include Picasso, Malevich and Richard Prince.


Post Literate was founded in 1988 by Paul Dougherty, one year before he started to edit on a prototype of Media Composer. He was brought on by Avid to perform support and demo work for their N.Y. office. Dougherty started as a free-lance on-line editor in the early 1980s working at video facilities. In 1986 he won an EMMY for Pee Wee's Playhouse which inaugurated a shift to off-line editing and long form work.
