It was a fantastic night celebrating 5 years of The Video Consortium 🎉🎉🎉 So glad we could be a part of it!

Happy birthday to us! Our nonprofit creative community turns five years old this month. We’re celebrating across the world, from New York to Washington DC to Milan. Here are some moments from last week's Brooklyn celebration. We’re so grateful to be filled with such brilliant creatives, and to be partnering with such stellar organizations and brands. Thank you, all, and cheers to many more years. 🍰🐣Lovely photos by Matthew Gilbertson⁠.

I'm looking for an experienced loader for a documentary TV series. PM me if you're interested. We are editing on Avid, shooting with Sony FS7. Could be day or night shift. Starts immediately and can last 1 year.
I am thrilled that my film https://www.facebook.com/hashtagLIKEthefeaturefilm/ has been selected as The Edit Center’s next project. Excited to meet your crew!
A great program! I still use all the techniques I learned at the Edit Center. Their system is so well organized, and helps you find your way through the weeds to the finished edit.
