I’m John VonMutius, passionate editor and occasional cinematographer.
I approach projects like I approach a puzzle. I collect the pieces, sort them out, then assemble them into something greater than the individual parts.
With a Bachelor’s Degree in Graphic Design, I worked for years as print designer. That quickly turned into web design and animation, thanks in part to my unquenchable curiosity. I soon discovered my true passion in video, the perfect marriage of careful planning, visual design, and personal interaction. Since 2009, I have been editing, operating cameras, setting up lighting, directing, and creating motion graphics packages. After editing and even post-supervising multiple feature films and streaming shows, I’ve developed the expertise to shepherd just about any motion-based project through post production to delivery, thanks in part to my network of reliable contacts for all phases of mastering.
When I’m not working, I love to build physical things, mostly out of wood, because of the unique challenges that manual labor provides. I like riding my bicycle, which is equipped with no fewer than four lights, a speedometer and a detachable basket. I read a lot of books (sci-fi, self-help, biography, just give me a good story!), and I stubbornly refuse to buy the latest smart phone. My wife and I oversee an urban menagerie of three chickens, one cat, and a tortoise, and we regularly brew good beer to share with friends and family.
