Video editing was not something Houndog envisioned doing as a film student at UC Santa Cruz in the ’80s. Back then, he spliced his films together with a razor blade and tape, and it was his favorite aspect of the whole filmmaking process. Now, he focuses mainly on that aspect, using Final Cut Pro X and Motion to create professional quality videos.
As a creative who understands both the language of film and the language of music, Houndog is uniquely qualified to combine the two. He equally enjoys composing and performing to picture, as well as editing to pre-existing musical scores and integrating them into video productions.
Houndog loves telling moving, entertaining, and interesting stories with music and video. He has recently created tributes to family members (including fur-children!), virtual band, multicam performance, and scrolling score videos. Please enjoy examples of these below.

Creatives wanting to perform together during this time when it is unsafe to do so can do the next best thing with a virtual band video.
