11/16 – 2/17

Edited eight one hour episodes about North America from 1776 to 1848, when iconic pioneers like Daniel Boone, Lewis & Clark, Davy Crockett, Andrew Jackson, Fremont and Carson, Native American warriors Blackfish and Tecumseh, and Mexico all fought to take or keep their claim. As editor and sound and music editor on a series with no composer, I shaped many dramatic dialogue and action sequences across all episodes with dynamic music choices and arrangements with full stems from Extreme Music and Audio Network as well. I also utilized effective sound design - from the most subtle of dialogue scenes that needs to build to a boiling point, to epic battles and multi-day wilderness chases... This is my fifth series with Stephen David Entertainment, a company largely creatively run by editors who are also producers who have won a sound editing Emmy for a previous series, so the bar was always set high.

Shaped drama about Hugh Hefner’s personal life, social-justice crusades, and brand built around the famous magazine. This series allowed real music so it was a fun change of pace to find and edit the best actual music for a scene, and this spanned the 1950s through the 1980s. Worked with stems and library music from Extreme and Audio Network as well.

4/16 – 6/16

Editor The Making of The Mob: Chicago

AMC — TV Movie/Mini — Stephen David Entertainment Details
4/16 – 6/16

Edited eight one hour episodes in this Action/Drama series chronicling the rise and fall of iconic gangster Al Capone and “The Chicago Outfit.” It was fun to heighten drama in a new way in a genre that has been done many times before, similarly with full music and sound editing responsibilities as well as picture.

8/15 – 4/16

Editor The American West

AMC — TV Movie/Mini — Robert Redford & Stephen David Entertainment Details
8/15 – 4/16

Edited eight one hour episodes in this Action/Drama series beginning in the aftermath of the Civil War. The United States transforms as icons such as Jesse James, Ulysses S. Grant, General George Armstrong Custer, Billy the Kid and Wyatt Earp stake their claim. Similarly with full music and sound editing responsibilities as well as picture, this series provided a great experience to edit within the modern take of the dark western history genre.
