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 reviews and tutorials of emerging post technologies have appeared in Post, DV Magazine and numerous other publications. 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.
