Runnin’ Down a Dream, Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers

Editor

We began this project in a cold and dusty vault,  digging through an accumulation of 50 years of boxes. It felt a bit like a treasure hunt and some of the gems we found were unlabeled film reels that had never been shown before – film that even the band was surprised and delighted to see. Editing this film with the hilarious, rebellious, smart, and incredibly talented Tom Petty was a rich and rewarding experience. Winning the Grammy Award wasn’t bad either!

Sitting between the three Angels on the couch, our host the young Fred Medill, got teased mercilessly during the interview and loved every minute of it. These three women are very feisty and have a great sense of humor.

Monster’s Ball

Field Producer, Cast Interview

There are some people you notice when they enter a room, who seem as if they are lit within. Halle Berry is one of those people. Talented, beautiful, powerful, and surprisingly humble when we interviewed her in the wake of winning her Academy Award.

Feeling Minnesota

Movie Trailer Editor, Teasers & TV Commercials

Cutting trailers is flat out fun and creative. Many times the movie is still in production and you need to fill in the gaps and  create many of the supporting elements. From finding the right music to creating layers of sound effects, and sometimes even dialogue. A lot rides on the success of a film campaign and you certainly feel it when you are working on one.

I cut a Music Video from this Lawrence Kasden film, featuring Warren Zevon who contributed much to the soundtrack of this film about LA in the early 90’s. Great footage to work with of an amazing ensemble cast including Kevin Cline, Danny Glover, Alfre Woodard, and a rather serious Steve Martin.
