Avid Media Composer/Symphony Tutorials

by Alex Walker

I have 9 years of experience as an editor having cut for many different clients. I use only the best technologies to ensure the best quality images through the production workflow. I have a complete Avid Symphony 6 suite with Boris Continuum 8, allowing me to accomplish most any editing task. I prefer to edit narratives but I have a long history of editing commercials, music videos and industrials. For narrative projects shooting in raw formats, I am equipped to back up camera masters to LTO5 tape, ensuring the archival of your valuable media.
