Second, Larry brings a complete understanding of pre-production, production and post-production to the art of editing video or film, because he’s been there. He has produced, directed, or edited thousands of hours of broadcast television, corporate events, and training. He knows what it’s like and he explains it to you so you can do the same thing.
