ANDY SEAVER - EDITOR
Andy Seaver is a multi-talented man. From his early years in Maine, music became an indelible passion for Andy. He is a graduate from Wesleyan University, where he studied jazz piano and in his free time, and used his craft to become an accomplished electronic musician.
Today, Andy is one of Seattle’s most revered editors, working on everything from high profile commercials, to blockbuster movie trailers and music videos. Starting at World Famous seven years ago (mere days after World Famous opened it’s doors), Andy began using his music and editing skills together to create something special.
“There is a definite connection between music and editing”, says Andy, “both have their own rhythm and beat, it’s about finding that and building on it”
Having settled for the long term in Seattle with his family, Andy is the master of puns and still creates electronic music (frequently playing Seattle’s highly regarded electronic music festival, Decibel) in his rapidly dwindling free time as his one-year-old daughter Zoe commands the bulk of his attention. With all these things happening, Andy couldn’t be happier.
