He has a rare combination of being creatively innovative and at the same time technically brilliant. Not to mention the effortless rapport he has with the people he works with, whether he's teaching or cutting.”

“Ed is such a great guy to work with/for. His total commitment to customer service and his enthusiasm for all things digital was contagious! He's fun and funny, which goes a long way in the post production world. His impeccable attention to detail and knowledge base round out the package that is Ed McNichol.”

Justin Kauer, Motion Graphics Editor

Michael Buday, Product Design Consultant, Sony
“Ed's deep knowledge of video and film production and post production gear made him a valuable asset to Sony as a freelance trainer. Ed's ability to convey complex concepts in regard to digital-fx , editing systems, video switchers, audio mixers and other broadcast equipment - coupled with his quick wit - keeps him in high demand in the broadcast industry.”

Marc Castillo, Assistant Editor, University of Washington
“Ed McNichol is an amazing Manager and Post-Production Supervisor. One of his many responsibilities was to train me as an Assistant Editor. I learned more from him in the one year under his supervision than I had in my entire five year career previously. Senior editors are usually really creative and talented editors with poor managing and organizational skills, or they are really organized but not creative and in tune with the editing styles of the day. Ed is one of those rare editors who is organized as well as having his finger on the pulse of the industry.”

Rob MacCaul, Freelance Video Editor
“Ed is a joy to work with. He can work with any and all types of different personalities and continues to shine. He's detail oriented and understands what it takes to get the job done. I enjoy working along side Ed!”

Daniel Singley, President, Dansing Marketing Group
“I have had the opportunity to work with Ed on several projects since the late 1990’s. He’s a guy that knows his stuff and how to make it happen. Working with him is a blast. He adds the right amount of input and direction to take projects from ordinary to extraordinary. Ed is someone that I am always happy to work with and when he is not available, I feel that something is missing.”

Dave Robertson, Video Network Engineer, University of Washington
“Ed is extremely detail oriented and combines the "art" of editing with the technical knowlege to manage the hardware and software required to do it. This is a rare talent indeed. Add to that being customer driven and a people person and Ed is able to give a level of customer service not always seen in our industry.”

Geoff Nelson, Owner, Megahertz Productions, Inc.
“Ed did a great job putting my website together back in the early 2000's. Not only did Ed design the site, he handled all the editing for the video sections of my site. Ed just says "yes" to whatever you might need done and does so with a smile. I made a good choice when I hired Ed to handle my multi-media needs.”

Steve Hester, 84C Motion Picture Camera Operator, US Army
“Ed and I shot film and video on the same crew for the US Army's Combat Development Experimentation Command, where it was commonplace to film multi-million dollar weapons tests-with no chance of a 2nd take. Ed's unwavering dedication to the finest quality of work profoundly affected my own personal and professional career. His personal level of excellence in all aspects of our film crew stick with me to this day.”
