In addition to editing our own films, we invite filmmakers to bring their projects to Moab for consulting and editing.
Michael’s extensive award-winning editorial background allows us to offer short- term consulting
services for those projects which are nearing completion, but need that extra something to get over
the hump, or long-term editing for those films that require more extensive work or are just starting out.
M oab offers a variety of accommodations, either in town or closer to the editing room at Pack Creek. For more on Moab and its surroundings, please visit the MOAB page.
The filmmakers who’ve come here have found that the experience at Pack Creek gives them
a chance to focus intensely on their work, while leaving time to enjoy the surrounding area.
For a more detailed description of the consulting process, please see the CONSULTING page...
Michael was Director of Photography on a shoot for Associated Television International out of Los Angeles for
their series Heroes Among Us. Based on a true local story, an endurance runner found herself paralyzed
after a severe fall--until her dog saved the day. Below are some clips from the re-enactment portion
of the program. This is a large file, so play once with starts & stops to fully load, then show will play continuously.
Co-Producer/Directors Judy Ehrlich and Rick Goldsmith brought a rough cut of The Most Dangerous Man in America: Daniel Ellsberg and the Pentagon Papers to Moab for two weeks. We continued working for another month, after RIck and Judy returned to Berkeley. The film premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival with a follow-up run at the prestigious Film Forum in New York.
Producer/Directors Marilyn Mulford and Quique Cruz brought their feature-length documentary
Archeology of Memory: Villa Grimaldi to Pack Creek for a long-term edit. An account of
Quique’s journey from the tragedy of Pinochet’s Chile to Quique’s re-awakening as an artist, the
film had reached an assembly/rough cut stage. The filmmakers spent 3 months in Moab and left
with a finished film which won the audience award at the Mill Valley Film Festival and a special Jury Prize for Artistic Merit at the Mendocino Film Festival..
Producer Peter Esmonde brought his film on the gifted artist Gerhard Trimpin, Trimpin: The Sound of Invention, to Moab for a short-term consult. The film was at a rough cut stage. We worked intensively for 7 days with
Peter and editor Rick Tejada-Flores. Trimpin went on to premiere at the SXSW Film Festival, followed by
screenings at Silverdocs, London, and Vancouver.
Producer Gene Corr (Desert Bloom) brought an assembly version of a promo for his semi-autobiographical documentary work-in-progress From Ghost Town To Havana, which we re-worked into a ten-minute piece. He’s now using the piece for fundraising.
