Hugo von Levetzow

Freelance editor of films, documentaries and TV.

Hugo has been an editor since 1985.

His editing career started during the infancy of MuchMusic. As a drummer in a post-punk band, his group needed exposure on the burgeoning station. He produced two videos which received regular rotation and helped him launch a career that has been exciting and fun ever since.

Soon after Avid introduced its first NLE, Hugo was given the opportunity to learn and work at the same time using the revolutionary new editing platform.

In 1994, he started Triangle Post with a few partners. During his 25 years at Triangle, Hugo edited documentaries, commercials, corporate productions and hundreds of hours of programming for television.

Over the years, he broadened his skills as a Finishing Editor and as a Colourist using DaVinci Resolve and Baselight.

With extensive picture editing and finishing experience, clients appreciate his passion, versatility and patience.

When not enjoying editing work for fabulous clients, Hugo teaches SCUBA as a PADI Instructor and travels the world, on land and under the sea.

His latest projects include films about musical collaborations between diverse cultures and protecting life in our fragile oceans.
