Catherine J. Moore - President
Media entrepreneur Catherine J. Moore has launched enterprises involving management and accounting for feature films and media companies, infomercial and commercial production, post production, commercial real estate, and non-profits. The former Telemation Productions business manager, Catherine purchased The Ogden House in 1998 and renovated the classic two-story brick duplex in the heart of Denver's Seventh Avenue Historic District to provide a home for her companies. Idea Spring Editing has evolved into an integrated firm offering concept-to-completion services with Final Cut Pro server-based editing suites, top editors, animation, graphics, sound design, writing, creative development, directing, production, duplication, and fulfillment.
Jared Picune - Senior Editor
“Today’s editing is a crossroads of technology and creativity. The technology makes it all happen. The creativity makes it communicate. Combining the two is what makes this such an exciting field. Editing is the final piece of the puzzle where everything comes together.”
When not creating masterpieces in the edit suite, Jared takes in the great Colorado outdoors, snowboarding in winter and bicycling in summer, going so far as to attach a digital video camera to his board or bike so friends can get a real point-of-view experience of what he has been up to. And his global voyages in recent years for a firm developing serious digital storage for content creators has really given him the travel bug.
Ethan Knightchilde - Editor
“There are three times you can rewrite a video or film: with the script, the shoot and the edit. You can make fairly significant changes at any time during these three stages. Editing, the final frontier is your last chance to dramatically rewrite the project.”
Ethan both collects films and makes them. His personal film collection spans more than a century of cinema and includes an original 2-strip Technicolor version of the 1925 Ben-Hur: A Tale of Christ starring Ramon Novarro. His free time takes him around the West studying ghost towns, the subject of his latest documentary. He likes listening to old time radio classics or playing vintage board games, like the 1970s Milton Bradley rage, Voice of the Mummy.
John Lindquist - Editor
“I like all aspects of film … editing a lot … creating and shaping the final form. It’s like architecture. If writing is the blueprint, and production is gathering the raw materials, then editing is building the house.”
John is a serious fan of Star Wars. He is also a fan of westerns, like Sergio Leone’s Dollars Trilogy. Besides collecting Star Wars memorabilia, his creative outlets include all aspects of film, including voice acting. But special effects seem to really drive his passion, as evidenced in his homage to a famous Redford-Newman western – starring cats? Yup. Check out the You Tube version of Butch Catskitty and the Sundance Kitten, produced by John and his fellow film students.
