What is an editor?
I've worked with great artists, thinkers, and talents from Irvin Kershner (Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back) to Jim Henson (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) to Ellen DeGeneres (The Ellen Show) and Tyler Perry (For Better or Worse). Each of them had one need: An Editor's Vision. My job has been to help express vision on film, television and new media in the best way possible.
Today, the possibilities for expression are endless, and a leading editor is a key part of that expression.
A leading editor's job is far more cutting two shots together. (Today, anyone can do that.) The best compliment I've received was when Tyler Perry saw my work the first day and proclaimed: "Finally a real editor!" The second best compliment was when Mr. Perry's two nervous house editors said to me: "Slow down you're making us look bad!" Not going to happen guys.
I'm the editor you hire when you don't want "attitude" from your editor, or excuses, or irrelevant demands. I'm the guy who gets stuff done and gets the best possible ratings and results. Hire me.
A strong editor is an interpreter who translates and interprets the contributions of everyone on a project from Director to D.P. and arranges all of the disparate elements and creates a voice with not a frame more or less than is required. Really. Every single frame of a television show or film is a decision that should be explainable by the editor when asked. Every frame. (Can your editor?)
Editors are also the technical backbone of a production and should possess the experience and knowledge to address literally every possible challenge that arises through the finished product.
If you are looking for an editor who works magic, quickly, choose one with the chops and experience to prove it to you on the very first day. So, stop compromising and hire a real editor.
Let's bring your vision to life. Let's tell a story.
