ABOUT LEE LUSTIG
Born in Jersey City, NJ in 1988, Lee always had a passion for film. Filmmaking and video editing inspired him from a very early age and by the age of 12 Lee was copying DVD’s onto his personal computer and working with software to produce his own music videos and trailers. For his own enjoyment, Lee learned Avid Media Composer and was continually creating entertaining and unique content.
Today, Lee continues to work on his passion as a highly sought after freelance video editor based in Los Angeles, and is excited to be regularly producing video content for television series, high profile actors and business personalities.
Lee’s first big credit came in high school, when he was the Executive Producer and Lead Editor on “The 411”, the high school wide video magazine. Lee produced and edited multiple segments per month for the show. He obtained his BA in Broadcasting from Montclair State University, where he worked on set on “Carpe Diem”, a locally broadcast news show. By the time he graduated, he had edited or produced over 30 news and comedy projects.
In 2011, Lee moved to Los Angeles, California, where he immediately became an editor in Peter Brennan’s (creator of Judge Judy, Current Affair, Hard Copy) production company on the Emmy winning show “Last Shot With Judge Gunn”. Lee is typically busy with a variety of projects such as reality shows, sizzle reels, independent films, and comedy sketches.
