Thorsten Knatz is an accomplished video editor with an eye for detail, creative flair and 18 years of experience. He’s always happy to share his knowledge and his passion for figuring out how to take the tired and make it inspired.
Thorsten’s professional background was built in Germany, where he was born and raised. His editorial work crosses many creative lines from Emmy nominated and award-winning comedy shows to advertising to VFX to prime time TV shows and multi camera sports events. From directors, producers and clients he always gets praise for approaching his work by focusing on the pace and feel of each project and his “gut” instinct for making good editing decisions.
Other good decisions he made were marrying his wife and participating in the green card lottery. Always pulling a blank at funfairs as a child, this time he hit the jackpot, moved to California and started to work for Pixomondo a week later. It was with great respect that he approached his first Hollywood project, but he quickly realized that the team appreciated his experience and his well honed editing skills, as well as his excellent ability to collaborate and communicate. He just finished a project as lead editor at a prime time show for RTL, Germanys most successful Network.
In his spare time Thorsten has devoted his life to his wife, yoga, outdoor grilling – no meat, please – and carpe the shit out of diem.
I have been in the industry since 1992.
