“If a story is a bunch of words in a row, and if one picture is worth 1000 words, then a story told with 24 pictures every second is like… well… let's just say that is a big-ass story right there!”

A guy who’s been making stuff with sound and pictures since before the turn of the century, THAT’S who. At least that’s the short version. It started out with 10 years of audio recording and mixing at Steve Lawson Productions/Bad Animals, leading to another 23 years as co-founder and Minister of Culture at Clatter&Din. He’s worked with big-deal, super-important international clients and some equally important super-awesome small ones too! And now he has set his own course, acquired some of his own gear, and even managed to build his own website. The goal? To get people to pay him for having arguably too much fun. As it has always been.
In his words:
“I’m curious about pretty much everything, so that makes me a fairly good interviewer. I have a well-developed aesthetic sense and also love buttons and menus, which in combination make me a reasonably decent shooter and editor. I’m a gosh-darn ‘people person’, which makes me a reliable collaborator. And to top it all off, words are something with which I have a way, which make writings a thing I do that I’m really pretty super good at doing.”
But don’t just take HIS word for it! Look around at a few examples, and read what actual people have to say about working with him.
I could write a side-splitting, irreverent testimonial about Vince Werner, commenting on the alluring shape of the back of his neck — something I’ve been staring at from the client seats for the past 20-plus years. Or I could play it straight and say that every project I’ve done with Vince — and I mean every — has turned out better than I expected. He brings a great eye, a calm demeanor, and an intelligence to the work that has made me enormously proud of our collaborations. Yeah, that’s it. I think I’ll go the straight route.Larry Asher – Worker Bees
