Hi there! My name is Dan Vukcevich, and I'm a video editor who wants to help you make your vision become a reality with any footage in which I am provided. I have 2 years of experience professionally editing video, however post-production has been my passion since my freshman year of high school back in 2005. I began taking Television and Video Production classes, and created videos for both my class and myself. This soon became a serious hobby that I knew I wanted to make my career.
I continued my post-production studies at William Paterson University of New Jersey. My Junior year, I temporarily chose a different path, and changed my major to Public Relations. After going through 2 years of PR classes, and an internship at a big-name company in the industry, I realized that a PR desk job wasn’t my true passion. Upon graduation, I stopped applying for Public Relations positions and quickly began to focus on rebuilding a video editing suite, and embarked on a career in post production.
I had already been doing work at an audio book production company called Common Mode Inc., and soon thereafter obtained a position at a production company called Croom Video Services. I continued honing my editing skills while learning the ins-and-outs of legacy video formats, such as VHS tapes, and how to transfer them to DVD and digital formats. The rest is history. I am a knowledgable and creative editor who is always looking to improve my skill set while completing quality edits in a timely fashion. That's my story, now let me create yours!
My proficiencies are: Final Cut Pro 7 & X, Adobe Premiere CS6 & CC, Adobe Photoshop CS6 & CC, Adobe After Effects CS6 & CC, Adobe Media Encoder CS6 & CC, Apple Compressor, MPEG Streamclip, TMPEG Smart Renderer, Rocket DVD Pro DVD Authoring Software, DVD Studio Pro, Foto Magico.
This show reel displays my best work to date regarding video editing and videography.

This video contains highlights of a charity event in NYC hosted by NBA player J.R. Smith. I shot with a Canon 7D, used a Zoom H4N to capture audio, and edited using Adobe Premiere Pro and Adobe Photoshop. Attendees of the event included Iman Shumpert of the Cleveland Cavaliers, Victor Cruz of the New York Giants, and Jaiquawn Jarrett of the New York Jets.
To celebrate Simba productions winning several awards for their training videos, I was asked to compile a sizzle reel containing the best examples of this type of work. To edit this video I used both Adobe Premiere Pro and Adobe After Effects.
I edited this web series about kosher cooking. I used Adobe Premiere Pro from start to finish. Techniques included title design, multi-camera and color correction.
