REFERENCES & RESUME
Jonathan is the most amazing editor I know. He's edited numerous shows of mine over the years and is super creative and a great storyteller.
He elevates every show he works on. He's also a pleasure to work with.
INDIGO FILMS-SAN RAFAEL
Jonathan and I worked on several high profile (read: high anxiety) projects while we were at NBC News. Jonathan is a terrific video editor. He is fast, creative, and able to work independently. He is also flexible - able to work from a home office or come into an edit suite. Best of all, Jonathan is completely without attitude. He works hard, aims to please, and fits in great on a team. He especially shines when you need an editor who can handle a high profile project - and yes, the high anxiety that goes along with it.
I got far more than just a veteran editor when I brought in Jon on Deadly Sins … he is also a passionate and dedicated storyteller. His depth of experience was invaluable in seeing how storyline interplays with editorial. His speed and work ethic allowed for dependability in my deliveries … Jon hits the mark every time in my experience.
His attitude was “can do” and his first Deadly Sins episode (along with his producer’s excellent script) was noticed by the network and was selected to be this season’s premiere episode.
Jon handled the difficult and often dark subject matter with care and artistry and his dramatic use of music, sound design and visual style created memorable sequences that (in most cases) were truly chilling, cinematic and often very emotional. He takes direction well and is very easy to collaborate with. His professionalism and warmth made the whole production a pleasure.

DEADLY SINS/STRANGER AMONG US
Jon has a great attitude and work ethic - and he's fast and thorough. One of my favorite qualities (and the sign of a good editor) is that he asks questions, and lets you know when something isn't quite working rather than just continuing on pushing buttons and wasting a day of valuable edit time on something that would later have to be redone.
SHOWRUNNER-CHAOS IN COURT
I had the pleasure of working with Jon on two very different programs. One was a reality show for the Style Network and the other was a documentary-style program for Discovery Health. Despite the differences in the types of shows, Jon was able to get the shows completed in an extremely creative and efficient manner. He was the ultimate team player on both projects - solving technical issues for not only himself but also for our other editors. He can hold his own both technically and story-wise, which is a rare and very welcome combination to have around. Great to work with.

...the most creative editor I have ever worked with. His talent sparks creative collaboration and he knows how to integrate picture, effects and sound with expert sensitivity. He has weathered the technology changes and is always a leader in the newest most appropriate technology for any project. He works hard, has a wonderful sense of humor, and will make any project shine. Hire him immediately!
Talented and efficient editor that can understand a producer's vision and run with it. Easy and pleasant to work with. Great sounding board when trying new ideas.
...a multi-talented wonder - a great producer, an imaginative storyteller, and a technical wizard in the editing room. I've worked with Jon longer than I care to admit (since - eek! - the late '80's!!) when he was known among those in the LA non-fiction community as the most talented online editor in the business. His technical skills and aesthetic instincts were flawless. He invented visual elements and techniques that had never been seen before..
Jon knows editing, he knows storytelling, he knows production, and he brings 150% of his creative energy to everything he does. I cannot recommend him highly enough.

I have worked with Jonathan on many projects over the years. He is a master editor/producer. Jonathan is versatile, resourceful, imaginative and fun. I recently asked Jonathan to prepare a music video for me on an extreme deadline and he knocked it out of the park.
I recommend Jonathan to anyone looking for a pro's pro!
I've known Moser for over 25 years. The guy has an eye for storytelling and visual panache. I called him out here ... a fresh pair of eyes on a production that had over 150 hours of material... He looked at the tapes, organized it and spent almost every working hour of two weeks, through the weekends to make this happen. Even when tired, he kept his humor, vision and skills...I'd hire him again. go Jonny, GO!
PACIFIC COAST VIDEO
I was recently made redundant at my company and as a result, decided to put together a short video bio that would provide a personal introduction to potential recruiters.
After reviewing several potential videographers, I contacted Jonathan who I found to be very engaging, responsive and willing to work within my short timeline. His flexibility in working with a fluid situation and willingness to assist with the creative and provide suggestions on how to present myself in the best way was greatly appreciated.
Given the short time constraint, Jonathan was organized, punctual and very easy to work with. I was very pleased with the final product which was professional-grade. I would certainly recommend Jonathan for any video venture, be it commercials, personal greetings and corporate presentations that you might need an experienced hand involved in creating.

Jonathan always found a way to shape the best story, even when some the footage was "problematic". His work ethic and sense of humor remained solid throughout the run, and he made a clear and unique mark on the show. His use of music and ability to create excitement and energy was really appreciated by the producers and network alike.
...an alert and savvy professional with excellent technical skills and a diligent work ethic. He met our rigorous production schedule with edits that were not only timely--they were creative and highly dynamic. When blizzard conditions prevented him from coming into the city, he was able to work from home, and then successfully bring the project back to us. Jonathan is both a team player and a self-starter, and I would be very pleased to have him work with us again.
