I worked closely with Rex Von Arnswaldt for many years, both in a newsroom setting at KITV (ABC Honolulu) and doing independent video productions. Rex’s shooting is so professional and artistic, so refined that even his unedited raw video is a work of beauty. I’m always amazed when I work with Rex, seeing his ability to compose shots on the fly, with perfect lighting, exposure, color and framing.
I’ve never seen a better videographer. He is great to work with, conscientious, friendly, even-tempered, a true professional. I worked with him in extremely stressful, even dangerous situations and he never lost his cool. Rex is also a talented editor and he keeps up on all the latest digital technology.
When the Emmy-award-winning reporters had a special project, they always lobbied to work with Rex.
