An experienced editor in corporate and online work is moving to more documentary work in the human interest genre. To have empathy and capture the feel of the story is key to me.
Since I was a small boy, the ability to comprehend the emotions of others, to grasp how wonderful it felt to hit a home run or how sad it
made others feel when their dog ran away, has always been of utmost importance to me. A similar empathy that I experienced when
watching movies drove me to editing them; as a result, I can now build narratives and communicate these emotions in editing to elicit
the same genuine human response from seemingly unrelated dailies.
