My name is Chris Joslin, and I’m an editor working primarily New York City. I have a BFA in Film from Long Island University, with a focus on editing and directing. Before college I attended the High School for the Performing and Visual Arts in Houston, Texas where I studied theater arts, including acting, production, and stage management. I strongly feel that this has helped me become a more skilled and disciplined filmmaker, and shaped my sense of rhythm as an editor. I see film and commercial production as an incredible form of communication and have a fresh, and outgoing mentality when it comes to working in the industry, no matter the job. Every film, television, or theatrical production is an ensemble effort; every position counts as an important piece of the mosaic.

My name is John Kordela, I am an Architectural Visualization Artist and Draftsperson, and I am currently looking for employment. My most recent position outside of freelance contracts was as Lead 3D Designer for Neurofocus, a subsidiary of Nielsen. This involved the creation of photorealistic, realtime virtual retail environments and products for neuroscientific consumer testing with some of the leaders in the automotive, retail, consumer packaged goods and food & beverage industries. I was directly involved with the development of the production pipeline for their virtual environment simulations in a small team of 3 people, and independently prevented a global retail client from issuing an enormous product recall by catching design flaws before manufacture. I have over 9 years of experience as an independent Architectural Illustrator using 3D as my medium, and have studied 3D modeling and animation at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco. My unique balance of abilities in multifaceted 3D, technical architectural design, and subjective fine art have helped me achieve success in generating approvals for large-dollar projects and attracting lucrative new clients. This reflects my diligence and commitment to whatever I pursue and I will provide you with an very ambitious and capable employee.
