Brian Levin (Editor) My interests began at a young age... my parents still keep photos of me editing on Jazz drives with the first release of Final Cut Pro. Over the years I have had the pleasure of growing my career as a professional editor working with several frequent collaborators, and always enjoy finding new ones along the way. I've worked on a wide variety of projects, ranging from feature films to documentaries, music videos, and commercials. The thing I love the most about filmmaking is the collaborative nature, no movie can be made alone, and I have always found that the best work I have done has been supported by the best peers I can find.
