Damon Claussen has been a post production nerd for 15 years. He offers a variety of creative solutions, relying on quick wit and a poor sense of humor in the edit bay to accent the creative flow. He's the Julia Childs of blending visual elements together with story and a pinch of music to make a delectably entertaining casserole. His editorial repertoire includes shows for: Warner Telepictures, Buena Vista Productions, PAX, Discovery, TLC, Smithsonian, and National Geographic Channel. Based out of Ventura for fast access to LA and the beach, Damon divides his time between new project development, editing, collecting full-size arcade games, and trips to the dog park with his furry assistant editors, Bristow and Jasmine.
