About Karl

I deliver high quality video editing and post-production services, and have done so for since 2011. Beyond video editing my services specifically include motion graphics, 2D animation, image retouching, and color grading. Post-production can be tedious and potentially daunting work. My job is removing all of the pain and anxieties associated with condensing raw footage into a fully realized concept. I work predominantly the adobe creative suite, and often do my color grading in da Vinci Resolve

Although currently located in the city of Pittsburgh, I also work remotely. Outside of post-production services, I also still offer full video production through my company Cunning Folk Films, which puts a focus on strong atmospheric video production and content creation.
