Re: Full time shooter-editor needed: Louisiana

Thanks, Rob. We just keep adding projects. Doing three TV series now, a fair number (100+) videos for companies a year, our DVDs, and there are more things we could do if we had more of us here. Hence, we're hiring. More than likely will end up adding two shooter/editor types.

It's a nice place to live.

Here's a look at what we do.
