About Guido Schneider
Guido Schneider is currently working at M8media as an experienced
broadcast and film online editor and colourist. He now has over 5 years
experience in the broadcast industry since he started working at
M8media in 2005. Since then he has finished a wide variety of projects
ranging from prime-time TV documentaries like "Mountain with Griff
Rhys-Jones" and "A History of Scotland with Neil Oliver" to dramas like
"Rab C. Nesbitt".
Having found his passion for television and film in his teens by producing short films and documentaries at youth holiday camps, Guido Schneider went on to study Media Technology in his home country Germany. During his course of study he gained a wide range of skills including editing, camera operation, lighting a set and compositing on Flint, Combustion and After Effects. During a 6 month placement at AVP-VideoTransfer, a postproduction company in Munich, he further developed his skills in Avid editing and was also taught the high-end finishing system Avid DS. Furthermore, he developed his skills in colour grading and telecine work.
In order to widen his international experience, Guido Schneider studied "Media Theory with production" for one year in Ayr, Scotland. In this course he could complement his skillset with subjects like Applied Creativity, Copyright and Independent production (including budgeting and scheduling for films). After finishing both his German and Scottish degree with the grade "with distinction", he started his employment at M8media. At this company he quickly progressed to working as an online editor. When the company invested in the colour grading system FilmMaster by DigitalVision Guido Schneider was trained as a colourist and has worked on the grade of numerous prime-time TV documenaries and drama series, as well as TV commercials and short films.
