Larry Jordan is an award-winning producer, director, editor, teacher and trainer who’s been involved in the media industry for 50 years. He’s produced, directed or edited at local broadcast TV stations, network television in the US, and created more corporate videos than he can count.
He began this website in 2003 specifically to enable editors, directors and producers to learn more about the evolving technology of media. Since then, he’s traveled the world helping editors to “get work, improve their skills and keep clients happy;” a motto written on his business card.
Larry believes that technology is inherently confusing for many people. So his goal, in his writing and video training, is to reassure people that they can actually learn this stuff. His training is based on explaining the underlying fundamentals of a technology, then providing clear illustrations on how it’s used. His stories also help.
After 30 years in Los Angeles, Larry is now based in Boston and is a member of both the Directors Guild of America and the Producers Guild of America. He’s the author of ten books, hundreds of podcasts and thousands of technical articles on all facets of production and post-production. He was honored with awards as “Industry Innovator” and “Top 100 Corporate [Media] Producers in America.” He was the Executive Producer and Host for the weekly Digital Production Buzz podcast for 14 years. He also writes a free weekly newsletter on post-production that publishes every Monday.
