About Paul

I am a seasoned director, editor, and video production manager with 10+ years of leadership experience in commercial, live broadcast television, features, and independent film. Recognized for aptitude in digital media management, as well as creating innovative audio and visual solutions, I have a verifiable history of contributing to project growth and expansion. Professional focal points include video editing, direction, production, photography, film coloring, and numerous facets of operations management and entrepreneurship. Delivering superior administration on the following areas of expertise requires the utilization of effective communication and negotiation skills, business acumen, systems analysis, and resource management to support efficiency and maximum results.

Currently, I am the Owner, Director, and Editor with Figmeister Studios. Under my leadership, I champion the studio’s overall productivity initiatives and creative design. I also successfully manage duties in association with screenwriting and casting, including actor management. Also, I liaise with fellow film industry professionals and departmental teams to ensure the company’s support structure is driving the business forward with minimal expenditures.

I have accumulated many awards throughout my career from National Lampoon, Stage 32, the Associated Press, and an Emmy Award for Best Evening Newscast.

Colleagues describe me as a progressive, experienced, and resourceful digital media expert who can be relied on to offer superior solutions that deliver profitable results on time and under budget.
