SHORTS:

Short films are great as they get right to the point and often drop you in the middle of a pivotal moment for the main character. It takes skill to build a rich world in a short amount of time. I’ve edited over 30 short films and I always love the passion that directors bring. Often with short films it is the one burning story they want to tell and I love that energy.
