"Jamie is a dynamite editor. She really drops into the subject matter and begins to craft a story that is compelling, meaningful and flows. She is a real treat to be around and she is a true professional."
Luke Kreinberg, Associate Director of Career Management MBA
"I've had the pleasure of working alongside Jamie Kruse for over three years. She is an extremely hard working editor who is very organized, efficient, eager and dedicated. As her manager at UniversityNow I could rely on Jamie for any number of projects, whether it be editing, script writing, conducting interviews, PAing or even acting (she was our resident stunt woman).
Beyond her talents as an editor, Jamie is THE type of person you want on a team. She has a magnetic personality and gets along with all types of people. This type of personality also comes in hand creating a welcoming mood when conducting an interview, or relieving those awkward moments during technical malfunctions in the middle of a shoot. I would easily jump at the chance to work with Jamie again."
Dan Bennett, Media Team Manager at UniversityNow, Inc.
"Jamie stepped into a project where the stakes were very high and we only had one shot to present our showcase to potential investors in NYC. With a limited amount of rehearsals and prep she learned both the lighting and sound and ran the show without any glitches. We flew from our home base in San Francisco to NYC on a low budget. It was a pleasure working with her at every step of the way and I recommend her highly."
Shelley Mitchell, Founder at Duse Studio of Dramatic Art
"Jamie is both a fantastically talented editor and the best sort of person to have on your production crew. I worked with her for 3 years and would be more than excited to do so again. Her cheerful attitude and can-do spirit make every job more fun than work. At UniversityNow, she often helped nervous interview subjects feel comfortable on set, and her insights always magnified the team's creative energy when discussing script ideas. Jamie also edits with care, precision, and emotional depth. She has a skill for turning dry subject matter into truly interesting and memorable videos. We could always count on her to craft an awkward interview into something heartfelt and moving.
She has that dynamite combination of personality, technical skill, and artistic vision. I fully expect that she will go on to do even more frighteningly brilliant work.
