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. And he elevates every show he works on. He's also a pleasure to work with.
INDIGO FILMS-SAN RAFAEL
...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.
...very passionate about creating the story and the editing process. That shows in the work he has delivered year after year. His understanding of the tools used by the most highly sought after video editors ( Of which he is one ) shines in every article he has written. I know that through the years, Jonathan has earned a number of Emmies and other awards, and his editing and storytelling skills have been seen on most cable and network outlets. Jonathan is so easy to get along with and has a very positive and genuinely caring attitude I would work with Jonathan in a heart beat!
DIRECTOR ONLINE COMMUNITIES
Jonathan is an amazingly talented editor. I have worked with him periodically over the last 30 years and have always been impressed with his creativity and technical skill. His ability to take a large amount of various footage and sources and somehow find and craft a compelling story from it puts him at the top of his field. Over the years I have seen him consistently find and tell the story where others have failed. And all without a need for the supervision that many other editors require. He's a true pro and a great asset to any production.
ALPHA DOGS, BURBANK
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
Everyone who works with me has to contend with my yapping about a few of the people I've worked with and stayed in touch with over my looooonnnng career. Jon is one of those people I continually rhapsodize about. He is a great editor, both stylistically and from a storytelling standpoint, but he's also a great person, and that is really what makes his work so special.
JULIE HARMON MASTRONARDI
...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.
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.

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.
...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.
