2012 editing reel

So this is my latest editing reel. Every editor, videographer and graphic artist is constantly tinkering with their reels trying to capture an insight into the artist behind the work. I think this version captures some of my enthusiasm and my sense of humor which I bring to every project I work on. I hope you enjoy it.

These images were taken in 1999 throughout Habana, Cuba. This is a city frozen in 1959 and as you go from the center of town to the “‘burbs” alot of the diesel powered studebakers are replaced by people on bicycles and horse buggies. While they recently legalized cellphones and computers, for people throughout the country that have electricity or working phone lines, the Cuban government is taking great strides to be “eco-friendly”.
