NYC based filmmaker/story teller and a detail oriented team player. In addition to producing my own projects, I am a skilled and experienced freelance editor and DP. As an editor, was raised on FCP Legacy - my current NLE of choice is Adobe Premiere and sometimes DaVinci Resolve Studio (depending on the project needs)- I am intimately familiar with RAW workflows (for RED, ARRI and SONY footage) and preparing projects for XML and OMF exports for Color and Sound respectively.
As a DP, I have excellent lighting/gaffer skills and I'm experienced with several digital cinema cameras - including various RED, SONY and ARRI models.
I have shot and/or edited shorts and features, both narrative and documentary. My work has screened at top tier film festivals and have also been broadcast on network television and premium cable.
My profession is filmmaking and my hobbies are filmmaking!
In addition to NYC, I am able/willing to work in both LA and Atlanta.
Unique traits: I am a filmmaker first - I freelance as an editor and DP

Autistic Like Me: A Father's Perspective
Film (Documentary and Family) Writer/Director An emotionally gripping feature length documentary film that examines the lives of five fathers raising and caring for children on the autism spectrum. Centered around a clinical weekend retreat with 14 Dads, the film dispels the archaic "big boys don't cry" notion and uniquely chronicles the emotional struggles of a group of fathers, including Director Jones, as they open up to one another about the fear, disappointment, and, ultimately, the acceptance of a very different parenting experience than they had envisioned. www.AutisticLikeMe.net Written by Charles Jones
Two Days in Harlem
Film (Crime, Drama and Short) DP/Editor Concept creator Two Days in Harlem is a SAG narrative short film that examines the relationship between the NYPD and the citizens of Harlem, NYC. The film takes an unvarnished look at the highly publicized and polarizing stop and frisk policy as well as the role police have in the community. The story is told through the eyes of Jason Farmer a veteran NYPD Detective and Harlem native. Jason's unique view of the community in which he lives and works offers a keen insight into the life of officers who have a difficult and often thankless job. He encounters three young men Omar, James and Eric on separate occasions and his judgment of who each of these men is may cost someone their life. The film stars Jason Hurt, Yandy Smith, Gabrielle Ryan and a strong ensemble cast of characters. Written by Anonymous
