Much of my work has been created for the high-pressure, fast-turnaround and often budget-constrained world of advertising. This environment forced me long ago to expand my skills beyond the core of rough and fine cut picture editing.
My skillset comprises
- video editing
- color correction
- music editing and sound design.
In terms of film or video genre, I consider myself a generalist, having worked on all manner of commercial content for TV, online video platforms and social media (such as :30 and :60 spots, brand videos, and all manner of short-form content), corporate video (for various events and meetings) as well as longer-form documentary and fictional content.
I am an expert in Premiere Pro and Final Cut Pro X (becoming certified in the latter a few years ago) and use DaVinci Resolve for my grading, and increasingly for editing as well. I use Adobe Audition for my sound design and mixing work. I’m also proficient with ancillary tools such as Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator and have a working knowledge of Adobe After Effects, though I do not consider myself a motion graphics artist.
I have begun offering limited video production services (using DSLR camera and Zoom audio equipment) and would be happy to provide details as well as my rate sheet upon request.
