RICHARD  LEVITT / EDITOR 

RichBrooklyn born and bred, Rich has been fascinated with almost all aspects of film/video production since his school days. He studied film production and editing at NYU, though he devoted much of his post-college years to journalism and, in the evenings, acting in off-Broadway plays (when he was lucky enough to get the work). Fortunately, at least for his bank account, Rich was among the first editors to join the staff of Omni (the world’s first glossy science/science fiction magazine), where he wrote and edited articles on everything from homemade tornadoes to NASA’s early plans for the building of an international space station.

Documentaries, particularly those with historical or political elements, drew Rich back to film and video and continue to be among his favorite genres. Trying to get a documentary produced about America’s involvement in the 1960s’ Congo, Rich (along with It’s-A-Go Productions’ Kelley Brower), found himself sipping scotch with one of the world’s most notorious CIA station chiefs.  Shortly after superstorm Katrina hit New Orleans, Rich coordinated a corporate video project in which he had the honor of interviewing victims of the devastating hurricane.

Additionally, he has worked with a number of production companies in the New York area, helping to coordinate a variety of commercial and corporate projects for such diverse clients as CBS and AstraZeneca International.

Among his non-video interests, Rich draws and paints landscapes and was an eager mountaineer for a time, having climbed in the Rockies, the Sierra Nevada, the Cascades, and just a bit in the Indian Himalaya.
