"I worked with Chris for almost 3 years at Fox News Channel. News is nonstop, and the team has to adapt and work quickly to get accurate promos on air. Chris is one of the best. His dependability, efficiency, and creativity made him an asset to the team. Whether it was a long-form trailer or 10 second promo, Chris got the job done. He has an innate sense for tone, pacing, and high quality storytelling. In stressful situations, his calm demeanor was exactly the attitude needed to balance my own anxiety or nerves. His witty one-liners helped too. I’ve learned so much from Chris about editing and he made me a better producer by teaching me little tips and tricks along the way. His skill set is invaluable and I can’t recommend his editing capabilities enough."
Producer, Fox News Channel
"Chris is, without a doubt, one of the best editors I have ever worked with (if not THE best). There isn't a single project I have to worry about when it is in his hands. Chris and I have been working together consistently for about a year now and I have been beyond impressed by his high level of skill and experience in the world of video production. His attention to detail, along with his creative spirit is the perfect combination to take on a future video of yours. He never fails to miss a deadline or a note despite the numerous projects he may have on his plate. Additionally, his ability to communicate effectively with my team and me is exactly what you need out of a creative partner. He is always ready to discuss or come up with new ideas on how to make each video the best it can be. I will continue to use Chris for all my future projects and am happy to recommend him to any Producer/Marketing Team out there. Don't miss out on a rockstar editor like Chris Davies - people like him don't come around often!"

"I worked with Chris for 4+ years while at Hearst Digital Media and Harper's Bazaar. He quickly became our go-to editor, working across a number of different projects. As an editor, he has great instincts and a keen eye for detail. He's able to jump into any edit and craft a compelling story, often with little direction or oversight. As a collaborator, Chris is receptive and thoughtful with notes and feedback. He consistently elevated our work and beyond that, he was a pleasure to work with every time. I highly recommend Chris to everyone."
Producer, Harper's Bazaar
"Chris's editing work is phenomenal. He has a distinct intuition about pacing and dialog that is incredibly hard to come by in an editor. With minimal direction, Chris is able to produce ready to release videos in record time. His ability to incorporate feedback in a thorough and timely manner is a dream come true for our production team. Chris's work has directly resulted in millions of views on our social media channels and hundreds of sales on our webstore - he is an invaluable resource."
Director of Operations, Midnight Science Club
"I've worked with Chris on many projects during my 3+ years as a Video Producer at Esquire Magazine and Men’s Health. Chris was always my first choice when it came to bringing an editor onto a project. He’s extremely reliable, easy to work with and collaborative, which is a necessity in the fast paced world of editorial media. Chris is also extraordinarily versatile as an editor. He has the ability to work on a variety of content from comedy pieces and exciting workout videos to heartfelt emotional stories that pull at the heartstrings. Not only is Chris a great editor, he’s also a tremendously nice person and easy to be around. I would highly recommend Chris to anyone."
Lead Creative Producer, Men's Health
"I worked with Chris for several years, and I have always had a great experience. Chris is very creative and focused on problem solving. Whenever it seems like a solution to creatively tell a story might be far away, Chris will have an idea that will transcend and elevate the work. He is collaborative and open. Our clients have all wanted to work with him again."
Producer, Origin Films
"I’ve worked with Chris going on over 5 years now. There are a world of talented editors out there, but it is a much rarer find to have someone who has high level talents, but also fantastic communication, a keen eye for detail, and the ability to see things from a different perspective (given his long tenure in the industry) to ultimately bring your project to the next level. It’s this level of trust and collaboration that keeps me working with Chris for productions. I highly recommend him to everyone."
Founder & Director, Brave Makers
"Chris worked with our production company, Melty Cone, consistently for over a year. As an editor, he was able to very quickly intuit our needs and work seamlessly with directors to grasp their vision. He made the creative process extremely easy by extending his own interpretive skills alongside those of the production team -- directors, producers, directors of photography -- and then outlining how he could capture a particular vision for a video through his editing skills. As a professional, he's easy to work with, too, and always communicates well. For freelancers and those working in creative industries, the professional side to creative work can be just as valuable in ensuring a smooth project and collaboration, and Chris is nothing short of a consummate professional. I'd recommend him to any potential client, producer, production company, or really anyone in need of an editor."
