"I've been privileged to help create custom workflows for films including Cold Mountain, Full Frontal, Napoleon Dynamite, and The Forbidden Kingdom. I also helped design digital workflows for “Scrubs,” the first top-10 network show to be edited entirely in Final Cut Pro. Currently we also post WC’s Everybody Hates Chris, another all-digital TV show that is shot on the Viper digital camera.

"There have also been scores of smaller independent features that have given us every bit as much pride. We enjoy helping filmmakers achieve their visions, regardless of the size of their productions."


We look forward to what's coming next for Zed, and for the future of digital workflows built around Final Cut Pro.
