Christopher Osborn

Christopher Osborn alternates between being a freelance commercial editor and teaching film studies. After graduating from Emerson College, he started his career in NYC as an apprentice editor on a flatbed with film and a splicer, and moonlighted on the weekends using the new-fangled (and highly unstable) Avid editing system. After making far too much money working in commercial television, he decided to switch to the highly-indebted world of 'feature documentary' films. (Which got him to Sundance, twice.) Deciding documentaries were also too remunerative, he bicycled to Boulder got a MFA in Film production and now teaches a new generation how to go into debt. He is currently working on a series of films with the UNDP in Guatemala on violence and homicides in Central America.
