I edit videos and play music.
I specialize in short form commercial edits, both digital and broadcast
...but I've also cut many music videos, news segments, dance & art and directed/edited a documentary.
A selection of agencies & production companies I've worked for/with:
Google Creative Labs, Special Guest, First Ave Machine, Anomaly, Hush, Gretel, Milk, Vice, Decon, Mass Appeal, Artclass, Juniper Jones, ODD, Work-Order, Athletics, Voyager, Magnetic, Sid Lee, TBWA/Chiat/Day.
I also DJ. And make remixes. And have written an article or two.
This is a site to house all of the things.
Directing/Editing only site: johnmcswain.tv
I’m available for editing in-house or remote. And sometimes I’m available to DJ your party.
