I’m a kickin’ editor & also when needed a preditor. I’m a super experienced editor (over 13 years of experience) with a fast-paced and “can-do” attitude. I've had Top-Ten hits on MTV and VH1, documentaries on the Lord of the Rings DVDs, Oscar Nominated THE SAVAGES DVD, SAW III DVD, and shows for the Discovery Channel, Kingworld / Wheel of Fortune & Jeopardy, Fox Sports, Animal Planet, Universal Records, Toyota, Independent Film Channel, plus multicam shows for VH1. I just finished editing a number of pieces at Deluxe Digital Studios.

I can meet the needs of your company – if you need me to work alone and take it all the way from raw footage to sizzling DVD menus - You Got It! But I also work very well under a producer, director, or any other team members. I am a team player and often worked for the same team for many years. You’re welcome to call any of my past clients for recommendations.
My Qualifications: Beyond being a geek and wearing glasses I edit in FCPro and AVID. I’ve been on AVID for many years. With FCPro, I have even built many FCPro systems for clients.

I love editing and have cut a lot of packages and HOT promo pieces. I’ve also edited for the director of MEMENTO/BATMAN BEGINS (Christopher Nolan) and have post-production consulted on many feature films and companies including NBC, IFC, The Sundance Channel, Kushner-Locke, and HBO Movies. There’s never a dull moment between being on Avid half the time and FCPro the other half. I’ve even been a panelist at many film fests including Sundance and the LA FCPRo User’s Group (LAFCPUG). I’ve taught Digital Production at UCLA Extension and have written technical articles on the latest in digital technologies.
I'm happy to discuss long or short term work.
Best, Tara Veneruso
