Terence Curren has had a passion for filmed entertainment since the age of 12, when he began creating home movies with an old eight-millimeter camera. He began his career in the early 1980s by directing, editing and producing music videos and a direct-to-video feature film. In 1986, he spearheaded the evolution of a major post-production facility’s edit bays, where he became senior editor in short order. He founded AlphaDogs in 2002 to fulfill his vision of a small personable company with big talent. Terence conceived of the Editors’ Lounge in 2003 as a way of giving something back to the post-production community, and introduced the Digital Service Station in 2004 to assist independent filmmakers with a service-bureau approach towards media i/o. His extensive knowledge of the Avid along with his rich editorial and color-correction experience, has earned him the recognition of his peers and a legion of loyal clients.
