Inside Hong Kong

Posted by Paul Devlin

This was my first professional video editing job, a segment from a movie made for the Hong Kong Tourism Board.

After graduating University of Michigan, I left the U.S. for two years. Lived in Paris, hitchhiked around Europe, then traveled across Asia. I would up in Hong Kong where my cousin Vince Sherry, was an anchorman for the local English-language TV news. I had run out of money so I crashed at his place, and he helped me find an editing job at a small company run by Americans called Take Two. I became good friends with the owner John San Miguel, cinematographer Justin Keen and photographer Douglas Carver. That video editing skill definitely came in handy, no matter where I traveled!
