LIFE IN A DARK ROOM
I’ve been editing since I was 9 years old. My father’s office was next to an editing room, and they used to let me cut trims together. Little did I know where it would lead.
At 24, I was assisting on low-budget features, winding through miles of film to find that missing frame. I was also working as a reader at a literary agency, writing screenplays and attending acting school. And occasionally sleeping.
A couple of years later, I hooked up with Broadcast Arts, an animation/special effects company famous for its station identifications for MTV and for PeeWee’s playhouse. These were guys who had found a way to make being weird profitable. I had found a home.
I remained at Broadcast Arts for the company’s final years, rising from assistant editor to the head of the editing department. I cut hundreds of nationally-televised commercials for major brands (see ‘clients’), and gained a great understanding of animation and special effects.
After Broadcast Arts closed, the managing partners asked me to join them in their new venture, Curious Pictures. I remained there for fourteen years. I cut and supevised postproduction of commercials, several television series (both offline and online), and two feature films. I also wrote, directed, and co-produced an independent feature: ‘Personal Sergeant’. This was a tremendous education in all aspects of production, from conception through distribution (the movie is being marketed by MarVista Entertainment; see personalsergeant.com).
Now that I’m freelance, I’m looking for projects which will utilize both my technical and narrative skills. A story can be a falling drop of water, or it can be a Russian novel; whatever your story is, let me help you tell it.
