Notes Northern Lights Executive Producer Robin Hall, “Many, many years ago, Greg and I were in a band together for about five minutes. The band didn’t work out but we’ve stayed in touch. Greg is a master storyteller who brings a sense of enthusiasm and excitement to each new project. His abilities as a musician and visual artist add an extra dimension to his editorial skills.” Adds Letson, “Northern Lights is a quality company with talented people that happen to be really nice too! I’m looking forward to being able to work in this dynamic environment.”
Armed with a degree in Broadcasting & Film from Boston University, Honolulu native Letson learned the ropes of post production hands-on as an apprentice to a top industry editor and never looked back. He has cut projects through a number of NYC’s top editorial facilities including Red Car, Fluid, Hooligan, Cabana and The Big Picture. Thriving on diversity, Letson’s work spans a wide variety of genres, spanning cinematic visual storytelling, character-driven comedy and docu-style branded work.
