"I loved your film [This Is Family]!! So funny, so well-written and so well shot. I love how you built to the close-ups on the father at the end too, you totally ramped up the tension in a beautifully natural way... hard to do... but you have cinema in your blood! BRAVO!!!!"
~ Cameron Crowe, Academy Award winning writer/director
"I've had the pleasure of working with Devin over the years on numerous projects, and I can assure you of the quality of his work and the experience as a whole. He is very easy to work with, and a consumate professional. He is not only a great editor, but an artist. He approaches all his projects as a creative force, not as a lowly technician waiting for you to tell him what to do. He takes initiative and interjects himself creatively in everything he does, but never in a way that comes off as "hijacking your vision" or taking control of your production.
His skill set is broader than that of any editor I know, with a knowledge of animation, set design, photography, lighting, and sound design. He is also a brilliant communicator and his artistic intuition is astounding. He can offer valuable advice in just about any area, including music, directing, and writing. You can always count on him to deliver the goods, better than you expected, even under crippling deadlines.
Bottom line: after working with this guy, you'll want him around on all your projects."
~ Zach Spickenreuther, composer
"I've worked with Devin on a number of projects and can attest to his tenacity. He has saved the day on many occasions through quick action and steady nerves. His post production skills are top shelf, and I dare say he is an expert in that department. I pain to think of a more on-task editor than Devin, and have seen him deliver excellently on brutal deadlines. He would be of great service to your enterprise."
~ Joe Holliday, production designer
"After witnessing Devin's grace under pressure on a challenging video shoot, he was my first call for a film project I was producing. We quickly developed a shorthand style of communicating and he instinctively knew what worked. His insights and expertise saved us time, money, and a lot of headaches. I highly recommend him."
~ Guy Birtwhistle, actor & producer
"Devin Schiro is, for lack of a better word, a genius at what he does. I have had the pleasure, and I *mean* pleasure, of working with Devin on a number of projects. He has always gone beyond expectations and continues to astound me with the quality of his finished products. Not only is his work brilliant, but his work ethic is something to be admired. He is a "go-with-the-flow" kind of guy, but at the same time he keeps on top of things. He is punctual and he executes his task with ease. He makes sure that his work comes out 110% the way you want it. As a director of theatre, I have a specific eye for things, and Devin is able to capture that eye precisely the way I want it. He has my full backing and support in being hired. You will be sorry if you don't get him while you can."
~ Justin Thompson, director
"We've had great pleasure in working with Devin. To us, his creative insight and ingenuity in working with the limited resources given to him helped paint a clear picture of our product. He was an absolute pleasure to work with and was able to meet our needs with issue while adding conceptual value throughout the whole process. There was even a time in the late stages of the project where he took it upon himself to re-shoot certain scenes for the sole purpose creating the best product video possible. And because of Devin's commitment to our project, major players in our industries immediately contacted us after the video he shot went viral. We definitely plan on using Devin again on all of our future projects."
