Editing the film
David has worked in broadcast television production for more than half a century, starting in Odessa in far west Texas at KOSA-TV and helped design and guide a brand-new affiliate station, KTPX (now KWES). Moving to Austin in 1983, he was Production Manager and Senior Producer-Director for Time Warner Cable for 24 years. There, he was instrumental in starting and designing Uptown Studios, an in-house commercial production studio and edit facility. He created commercials at all levels, including some high-budget film spots that ran nationally and internationally. David also taught television production at the university level at the University of Texas Permian Basin in Odessa.
In 2007, David started his own award-winning post-production editing business, CrewsCreative, which he still owns and operates. His voice was heard world-wide for eleven years as an on-air host for KMFA, the capital city’s classical radio station.
CrewsCreative, LLC (along with David!) is now based in Las Cruces, New Mexico.
