Creative COW Web Writer, Contributing Editor
G. Allen Stewart
Lafayette, Louisiana USA
I started my production career as a graphic prop builder in 1996 at the
Ellis Mercantile Company in Los Angeles. While in LA, I worked on
various productions, including commercial, music video, TV pilots,
video gaming and feature film. I started working in Lafayette,
Louisiana (the other LA) in 1999 at Channel One Video & Film, Inc. At COV&F I have come up to become the lead editor and motion graphics artist.
Since being discharged from the army in 1991, I have worked at various
print media companies as both a paste-up artist and writer. I have
written for LA Weekly, Feature Magazine (Austin, TX) and The
Independent (Lafayette, LA). I have also done an endless amount of
contract copy-writing for commercials and industrials.
Between work at my shop, kite-surfing, wakeskating, super-biking, and a
lucrative consulting business, I stay busy and happy.
