I was the editor of “Starlit”, winner of over twelve awards, including Best Feature at the 2018 New Jersey Film Festival and Best Feature Comedy at the 2018 Queens World Film Festival.
Other highlights of my career include editor of the feature narrative, "Central Park Dark", starring Tom Sizemore, editor the 2017 doc-web series "Gaspari: the New Era" for Generation Iron, editor of the first season of the unscripted competition 60-chapter web series "Whatever it Takes" (staring Grant Cardone) and editor and co-producer of “New York Drag” a feature doc that explored the lives of drag queens and gender-benders.
Additionally, I've cut many corporate promos and so-called sizzle reel pitches.
I've been a freelance editor for 16 plus years in the NYC area. I studied film theory as an undergraduate at UMASS , but am largely self-taught. I am facile with many of the latest software tools, notably Adobe Premiere CC (which I cut Starlit in) and FCPX (which I'm a big fan of and also teach). I often work remotely from my studio in the East Village of Manhattan. I often have an intern who acts as my assistant editor.
One producer wrote of me:
"My wife and creative partner Christine Daum-Farber produce television segments for German television on science and culture topics. Seth has edited several of our pieces. He is everything you want in an editor - technically proficient, a creative storyteller in his own right, with a fine grasp of timing and rhythm in his editing. Seth is never at a shortage for throwing in great ideas. We have a thriving working relationship with Seth - he is great fun to work with.
