My name is David Olsson and I’m a video editor, writer, and motion designer.
Since graduating Hofstra University with an Honors B.S. in Video/Television & Business, I have put this degree to work, crafting strategic corporate videos for Fortune 500 clients, as well as researching and writing entertainment pieces for major online media distributors — all projects with the shared goal of telling a compelling story. Throughout my years of experience, I have become an end-to-end, preditorial tour de force, particularly in the area of digital video content.
Anything that crosses my desk — whether it’s a commercial spot for a local bank, an international sales pitch between high-end brands, or even a vibrant, pop culture video essay for a multi-channel YouTube network — receives the same level of diligent communication, attentive management, and egoless revision. I see my craft with a creative eye — TWO, even — backed by a pragmatic, and often snappy, marketing mind. I know how to bring an idea to life, the time and hard work that it takes to do it right, and how to make sure it’s got teeth.
I have been commended by my employers and coworkers for my dedicated work ethic, approachable personality, proactive spirit, and a unique sense of style and humor that are evident in all of my projects. I always give 110%, which is mathematically impossible, but… listen. I never said I was good at math.
Thank you for your time and interest, and I hope to speak with you soon!
