I started editing for TV in 2010 and haven't stopped since! My work is trusted by major brands such as
Intel, Microsoft, and Cisco as well as directors
of feature films. I enjoy learning more about my craft from other veterans of the industry. Collaboration is a top priority and I strive to honor my Savior
on every job I take.

"Zach is indispensable. I know if he takes something on, it will be handled competently and
professionally. He has gone above and beyond the call of duty more times than I can count.
Clients adore him and the work is rock solid, on-time, and on-budget.”
Director/Founder - Conduit Media
“Adding Zach to our team has been one of the best decisions for our company. He took the time
to understand the creative style and identity of Take 4 Films and he consistently delivers
projects that reflect those standards. Always meeting and often exceeding expectations. Zach
is creative, organized and reliable. He is a great communicator and team player. I highly
recommend that you rely on him for your editing needs.”
Owner - Take 4 Films
“Zach is one of the best editors I've ever worked with. He's conscientious, reliable, takes
ownership, and does great work. Plus, he's great with super tight turnarounds.”
Host of Compelled Podcast
“Working with Zach is a pleasure. He excels with clear and prompt communication, which, as a
producer, I find particularly noteworthy. His instincts as an editor are solid, his manner
professional, and his ability to deliver a vision or build one equally strong.
Your project is in good hands.”

WHY HIRE ONE?
Another eye in the edit bay who knows the footage as well as you do and is committed to serving the story. It is my place as an editor to give input that serves the director's vision
and to have his back at all times.
TRAINED TO WATCH
Experienced editors have acquired the ability to watch the raw footage, notice how it makes them feel, and keep track of it mentally for later use.
“There is an actual skill to watching dailies.”
Kelley Dixon, ACE - Breaking Bad and Walking Dead
Editing is not just choosing the right shots
but choosing how they flow together.
“You must have peaks and valleys and dynamics within the action
itself, so that it’s not 'at ten' all the time.”
