Go To Team in Charleston adds Fulltime High Definition Editor, updates High Definition Edit Suite
(CHARLESTON, SC)- Go To Team announced today that Ryan Cockrell has joined the company as the new High Definition Video Editor for the Charleston-based production company. As High Definition Video Editor, Cockrell will work with clients to craft entertaining and effective finished video products.
Having worked freelance for Go To Team the past eight years, Cockrell says, “The Go To Team makes great TV, that’s where I belong. It’s my family. We always have the best people and equipment – the best attitude and the most fun. I like being a part of that.”
Along with bringing Cockrell on board Go To Team spent over $50,000 completely updating their Charleston Edit Suite to accommodate High Definition video. The room now has 4 HD Monitors, DVC Pro HD Deck, and the ability to edit video footage shot on the company’s 4 High Definition Cameras.
Operations Manager, Shawn Moffatt sees real value in the new upgrades. “The upgraded suite is the premier High Definition Edit Suite in South Carolina. Its technology and layout make it a unique environment for Ryan and clients to be creative. Clients can even view live edit sessions from anywhere in the world through our new video server.”
Cockrell has worked in film and video professionally since 1999. Upon graduating from the Honors College at the University of South Carolina, Cockrell moved to San Diego where he began freelancing in the production community for Entertainment Tonight, Extra, and Oprah Winfrey. Shortly after wrapping a movie entitled, The Forsaken, Cockrell came home to South Carolina.
In his first two years back he worked as editor and audio engineer for ABC News, NBC News, The Food Network, The Discovery Channel, The Travel Channel and Trinity Church. For the past two years, Cockrell has worked primarily for NBC News on the Today Show, Nightly News and Dateline. Highlights include complete 2004 election coverage and a trip to Rome to cover the funeral of Pope John Paul II live from Vatican Square.
As lead Editor, Cockrell received an award in 2006 from the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons for a DVD production detailing the hip surface replacement techniques of pioneer surgeon Thomas P. Gross M.D.
Although the majority of Cockrell’s credits are from major networks, during down time he works on skateboard video projects in South Carolina, Arizona, California and up and down the entire East Coast. He is the Director of a non-profit association, PourItNow.com which is devoted to creating public skate parks throughout South Carolina.
