Peder Hansen began his noteworthy editing career in Johannesburg, South Africa, where he grew up after his family escaped civil war in his native Rhodesia when he was six. Initially working in effects and graphics, Peder’s curiosity pushed him to learn the Avid very early in the game, and his creative and technical skills combined with his interest in and attention to the storytelling process, making him a much sought after editor for a variety of channels in Johannesburg. Peder came to the US in his 20s and settled in Orlando, editing with post-production companies specializing in infomercials, corporate videos, commercials, , including for Universal Theme Parks. For the past 10 years, Peder has been the A-level “go-to” guy at a number of production companies throughout Florida creating documentary/reality programming for networks including Bravo, Nat Geo Wild, VH-1, CMT, and TLC. He is especially proud of his online editing for the Emmy Award winning Series, Jack Hanna’s Wild. Peder is ready to stretch his wings on an inspirational independent project that will allow his natural talents in the bay the space to work unrestrained by network needs (and notes).
