Our trading company in Tokyo requested a 2 minute video introduction for a new product we manufacture for them. I notified Albert Benichou at DeNoise Studios that we had selected him (on the basis of other reviews) late Friday afternoon. I arrived at his studio at 10:00 a.m. on Monday. We did the shoot in just over 90 minutes. He had a proof to me that evening and offered suggestions on how we could vastly improve some of the content using public domain HD video. He edited the segments so each point I made had an appropriate visual. The final was ready, as promised, midday on Tuesday. He got the editable versions to FEDEX for us that afternoon and it will be delivered in Tokyo by 6:00 p.m. tonight, a day early. Albert has a great calmness about him which is extremely helpful because I'm not a professional actor and have to overcome my nervousness and his patience and suggestions made that easier. The piece will be the introduction to a TBS home shopping network broadcast with a hand-off to the program's host. I would have rated DeNoise 5 stars except that Albert didn't "mic" me. He relied on recording the sound from his camera and while the audio quality is understandable, it's not as balanced as it might have been with a lapel mic. Otherwise we are completely satisfied.
We contacted Jim less than a week before a big photo shoot we needed in California Bay area (our original photographer abruptly quit). He was absolutely wonderful. He was professional, very easy to work with, top quality work and offered very diverse selections of photos. He was willing to go above and beyond to ensure we had quality photos and video. When he promptly finished the delivery of the photos, were well organized and easy to find. I could not be more impressed. I would HIGHLY recommend Jim & his company.
We have worked with Louis on a variety of projects, from basic editing of video that others have created, to a full PR project that required him interacting with a task force and a PR firm to develop, film and edit a 1 minute long Public Service Announcement. We are always very pleased with the final product that Louis provides. He is always very eager to receive feedback and rework something so that everyone is pleased with the final product.
Danny was a great partner to me when I started my first foray into video content. Since my website is a small operation, I initially tried to do videos myself, but quickly realized I should probably at least consult a pro. A mutual friend connected me to Danny, and the difference between a trained professional and a novice watching YouTube tutorials (me) became obvious. Danny had a very organized approach to content creation; everything from narratives and shot lists, to lighting and post-production was efficiently and thoughtfully planned out. My videos were coming out faster, but looking better. Super easy to work with, and would love to work with him again.
Farlen has a keen eye for editing. I hired him several times because I was so impressed! I love working with him too, hes a great guy. He did the editing for this short film I am working on with my improv group. Also he added music to the video which was a great help. I also hired Farlen for my professional day job, he shot, edited and made a promotional video of our annual gala/fundraiser. Which we had used later for raising money on kickstarter. I don't know what we would have done without Farlen's video editing skills! It was a great success! I would highly recommend him for artists, comedians, non-profits, start ups, small businesses and especially campaigns. If you need help with video/ editing and all things media call Far Reaching Media. He also doesn't take forever on projects like some editors I know, he is efficient and diligent with him time.
I run a website where I mash together different videos so I needed a video editor. This guy DELIVERED! The transitions were perfect and to top it off he even gave me Titles to match (see picture).
Deepa's work was professional and complete. She took customer's input and worked quickly until the requirements were fully satisfied. I highly recommend her to anyone who needs a reliable video editor.
Alan is a total professional, talented filmer and editor and total bad ass. He COMPLETELY saved the day for a time sensitive shoot we had. He stepped in on short notice and provided a full day of shooting for us. He was easy to work with and supported us to get the best performance for what we needed. On top of that he organized all the footage and audio and provided a really solid finished edit of our project within days. Can't recommend Alan enough.
Erik and I worked together on a commercial for my old employer, Asian Food Grocer. He and I planned the commercial from the beginning- writing, staging shots, recruiting actors. At every step he was professional, resourceful, and exceptionally creative. The filming of the commercial went smoothly, and what really blew me away were his skills as an editor. And even though it was my project that I came to him with, he put in more hours than I did, and worked far beyond what I ever expected or asked for. I am incredibly happy with his work, and I hope his future projects only get bigger and better
John Biehl of Wholly Post is the most gifted editor that I know. We have worked on multiple projects together over the years- ranging from TV shows- branding videos and everything in between. He is wonderful to work with and always exceeds my imagination and expectations. He is passionate about his work and committed to over-delivering every time.
I would hire Loi again in a heartbeat! She is a very talented video editor and has exceptional research skills. She demonstrated a strong work ethic upon coming onto the project and never lost steam. There a plenty of video editors that are also talented but in addition to her talent Loi has an unwavering positive attitude, humility and kindness that made her such a pleasure to work with. Her professionalism and artistic vision were a perfect match for the needs of my small business. Thank you Loi!
Larry did a fabulous job in filming our Launch of a New Wine and Several Beverage Lines over the years. He is very professional and very easy to work with and fair. Plus he is great guy with a fabulous eye for what works.
Dina is a first-class professional. She crafts her photographs & videos with detail to lighting, composition, and all of the 'invisible' elements that make the difference between a good amateur and a true pro. Her experience and confidence give her the ability to meet a deadline without stressing herself or her clients. She is fun to work with and respectful of others. Love of her craft shines in her work.
Rick LeCompte is an excellent editor. He is organized and thorough and technically proficient on multiple platforms. More importantly he has a breadth of life experience that informs his decisions and his judgement. You will be well served if you chose him for your job.
I love to tell great stories with both unique visuals and compelling sound bites.

I have been fascinated by films, documentaries and music videos all my life. I specialize in short-form video for digital media platforms. I think video that is viewed on TV, the web, smartphone, tablet, or any other device should be much like a piece of candy, short and sweet. I am providing a burst of high-impact flavor that grabs your attention and then disappears, leaving you wanting more.
I'm a filmmaker and editor with over 15 years of experience in creating and cutting a wide range of work from narrative shorts and features to TV pilots, promos, commercials, music videos, and corporate videos among others. I have a full breadth and understanding of the creative process from concept to completion. While I would say my greatest strength in recent years has been as an editor, I also have experience with the logistics of Producing, and seeing a project through from start to finish. About two years ago I moved from LA, back to the bay area where I grew up. I've also been the the go-to producer, director and editor for Capitola Media, LLC in Mill Valley where Ive been involved in the creation of numerous videos for tech companies such as, HP, CISCO, Towers Watson and Bank of the West and Live 105's 2013 BFD video and among others. I've also made company sizzle reels and PSAs including videos for the California Film Institute and the Wildlife Conservation Network. I started using Final Cut in 1999 and have a mastery level understanding of it. I transitioned to Adobe CC over a year ago and have a firm understanding of premiere CC and love its native workflow and tight integration with after effects. I also posses a deep technical grasp of codecs and compression for delivery to any medium. I gained great joy from the art of the cut from the creative editing to finishing, color grading and doing audio sweet and mixing.
