Excerpts from various documentaries in which I served as supervising editor and/or editor
An organizational profile of a top, nationwide Digital Media Sales and Marketing executive search firm.
An example of a web clip for a fully developed corporate or business website and a corporate branding program as well.
Media Recruiting Group, a NY-based boutique executive search firm, chose us to make their initial foray into video promotion. The core goal of the program (and the other 2 web clips which we created) was to positively represent the company to potential candidates and to clients and prospects as well.
Created by Mark Gasper and Matthew Mallinson for Steve Goldberg, Risa Goldberg and the Media Recruiting Group.
I was one of the producers of this offbeat stop motion animated series produced by Carl Paolino Studios for Bravo. I cut together this compilation of scenes from various episodes. The concept was to spoof popular television culture as well as popular movies, creating unlikely scenarios such as “Quentin Tarantino directs Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs”, “Woody Allen’s Spiderman”, “Gilligan’s Matrix”, The Sopranos as “The Brady Bunch”, Samuel L. Jackson hosts “Jeopardy” etc.
The opening scene and title sequence from the action-adventure independent feature film “Unmasking the Idol”, a James Bond look-a-like with karate and featuring a baboon sidekick.
I was the Associate Producer as well as the Editor.
A behind-the-scenes look at the production of Lisa Loeb’s debut album “Firecracker”, featuring her hit “Stay”.
I worked as a freelance editor for Music Motions, a company that specialized in creating music videos for theatrical as well as television distribution. Music videos I edited include recording artists Mick Jagger, David Bowie and Twisted Sister. Featured in this online portfolio is Sade, with her hit “Smooth Operator”.
I was one of three editors who worked on this documentary. I also supervised the media management, color correction and tape to film conform to 35 MM. The first video is the trailer. The second video is the entire documentary (I’ve removed it since the performance has been erratic; it’s also a flash file so you may not see it on some mobile devices anyway).
“Unforgotten: Twenty-Five Years After Willowbrook” examines the impact that the horrors of Willowbrook had on the survivors and their families. Willowbrook took its toll not only on the survivors, but on the parents and siblings as well. “Unforgotten” takes us into the world of these families, revealing their sadness, frustrations and their attempt to come to terms with the day to day burden of living with the horrors that their loved ones had experienced.
It was a nightmare that shocked not only New York, but all of America. The public outcry about the Willowbrook State School (on Staten Island) for people with developmental disabilities resulted from Geraldo Rivera’s expose on WABC after he had entered Willowbrook with a film crew, using a stolen key.
