For many years, I was in sales and production for a printing company catering to high-end print production. My customers were demanding. However, I quickly learned that in order for us to deliver a quality product, we had to master the art of communication. Engaging in a conversation, listening to client needs, exchanging ideas — these are all skills that serve me well today for different clients, but no less demanding.
When I studied communications at the University of Massachusetts (Amherst), I learned film-making using film and the cutting board. The technology may have changed, but those early years gave me a solid foundation in the rhythm and timing in motion. Yet my experience in print production—the hours of perfecting the color in a print run—that has made color correction an integral part of my editing process. Anyone can learn software, but it is mastering motion, color and communications that makes your work sing.
