Mark Needham

Mark Needham’s post production career spans over thirty years. Mark joined forces with Avid in 1995 where he worked closely with top industry professionals and was part of the non-linear boom. He then led the editorial team at the promo production company Toolbox, which was one of the nations’ first facilities to go straight to air from an Avid.

Mark arrived at Vitello Productions in 1997 working with one of LA’s first Symphony installations. As the supervising editor, he utilized Avid’s universal mastering workflows and also worked closely with their beta-testing program for the color correction engine.

Mark became a staff online editor at Matchframe Video in 2002, where he finished numerous programs for HBO, ABC, NBC, CBS, MTV and various cable networks.  Credits include reality programs, documentaries and music videos.

In 2006 Chainsaw contacted Mark to become the online editor for their first expansion from Santa Monica into Hollywood. Being grateful for this opportunity, he has the good fortune to work with many talented people on a number of great projects.

Mark is most proud of the file based workflows that he helped develop with colorist Kris Santa Cruz and the Baselight color grading system. He is equally proud of his Symphony color correction skills and effects editing expertise. Delivering high quality work is his first priority, and building long lasting relationships is the reward.

Mark is currently focused on the MTV scripted series’ Teen Wolf, Finding Carter and Scream, in addition to many reality, documentary and award shows.
