Art Freed is Hot Pixel Inc’s CEO and Head of Editorial. Art’s career in the entertainment business started as a post-production intern working with legendary film director Richard Donner (Superman, Lethal Weapon). It was there he got the opportunity to watch the amazing Frank Urioste edit the film “Conspiracy Theory” and came to understand the impact that the editor has on a film.
Art has spent years working on promos, features and unscripted television as an editor and online editor at some of the most respected studios and post production facilities in Hollywood including Laser Pacific & Walt Disney Studios. Working in those environments allowed me to see what the cutting edge looked like, I incorporate that kind of aggressive thinking into all of my work now regardless of budget. Art uses his experience to help clients achieve the very best results for their projects. His understanding of the entire filmmaking process from shoot to exhibition makes him a unique asset on any project from a web video to feature film.
In the edit bay is where the movie really gets made, it is where Art crafts the performance, finely tunes the dialogue, dials in the pace, sets the tone and protects the story. Working together with the director, Art works to find the micro improvements that all add together to make the project stronger.
