                                                                                                                                        Opusopen is a Production & Post Production Studio based in Hollywood, CA that provides service for Television & Feature Films.  As a motion picture editor, it is my job to help the director materialize her or his vision.  To do this, I take a multi-disciplinary approach to editing, pulling from my experience in music, dance, theatre, literature, and the visual arts.  In this way, I can offer directors solutions from a diverse artistic and cultural background to solve problems outside traditional boundaries and reach solutions based on a new and different understanding of story and cinema.
