During production, Edward has three main roles: assistant director, where he organizes logistics of shoots to ensure efficiency on set, crafts shooting schedules, ensures the health and safety of cast and crew, and more; camera operator, where he runs cameras for live events, documentaries, interviews, behind the scenes, industrial, and narrative filmmaking; and audio operator, where he records onsite audio for various media projects. In post-production, as an animator, Edward creates 2-D and 3-D animations using the Adobe suite and Cinema4D; as a compositor, he does digital compositing of special-effect shots using Adobe After Effects and Mocha; and as an editor, he edits video using Adobe Premier and Avid. Additionally, he manages media systems (transferring, organizing, and storing all company-wide media files), oversees the studio (facilitating day-to-day needs of our in-house studio), and supervises media equipment (ensuring all shoots are covered with any equipment that may be needed). His role is widespread and varies day-to-day, project-to-project, but he thrives with many moving parts and multifaceted responsibilities.
