About Me

I'm Ed, I'm well versed in video production in everything from green screen shoots, to field recordings, I've set up multiple studio spaces, and shot in remote regions such as Nome Alaska for a reality show and Yellowstone National Park for a University of Illinois course.

I deliver consistent video with regards to correct exposure, white balance, focus, I avoid camera shake, and bad audio. I make the best out of every shooting situation, I think on my feet and love working with others to solve problems. I have experience with multiple cameras from RED to ENG shoulder cams, I've also shot on 16 and 35mm. I have experience as a gaffer; I have my own light kit, I know how to light for interviews both interior and exterior.

For five years I’ve been a crucial member of the instructional media resources group,or IMR, a video production group that also streams and records campus events.
Currently I produce videos for online courses, which involves scheduling / planning shoots, working closely with content experts, consulting our graphic designers, and checking with the QC team to create finished videos for courses. Throughout our workflow I supervise student editors, assign tasks for my projects, and I handle delivery uploading videos to distribution sites and setting up streaming links from our server.
I love working with others and collaborating on various projects. Having worked on a large team with a shared server I learned how to keep organized and how important it is to archive projects.
I enjoy learning about all aspects of video and encoding (currently I’m learning ffmpeg), but I’m interested in gaining knowledge of how to build web pages, set up servers and networks.

I have been in the industry since 2013.
