Message from Alison Marek, MFA

Welcome to the final stage of cinematic storytelling: Editing. Post-production is the place where creating a magical experience for the audience really takes flight. I look forward to meeting you all, learning about your stories and dreams, and helping you make them come true -- in the editing suite and beyond.
