"Get a guy who understands comedy. A bad camera / editor can really drain all the funny out of a good script / good acting.
Our guy, Kenji, is a beast! He has great timing with editing, does great camera work, and is passionate about what he does. Don't let a good idea be ruined by lazy edits & camera work."
