Hi, I’m Ian Boyd, an editor, sound recordist, percussionist, film reviewer, actor and proud member of the iN DEMAND L.L.C. Programming Department. I am glad to be entering iN DEMAND’s third decade as part of a wonderfully creative, supportive team of individuals.
One of my proudest programming accomplishments came about at the end of Summer 2014, when I had the privilege of scheduling the We The Economy series for Morgan Spurlock’s Cinelan and Paul G. Allen’s Vulcan Productions. In August of 2016, I had the further privilege of scheduling the Cinelan/Vulcan follow-up series entitled We The Voters, anticipating the 2016 Presidential Election.
The above image is a still from my upcoming feature film debut as an actor, My First Orgy: Documentary. The film was shot between January and July of 2015, to be released in early 2017, and is the first feature produced by the Brooklyn-based Bad Film Festival. My co-star, Nicola Rose, allowed me to reprise my character from the film in her webseries “Callie & Izzy”. Many thanks to Bad Film Fest founders Shawn Wickens and Starr Kendall and Nicola for making both projects such wonderfully-fulfilling experiences.
In the former half of 2013, I interned as an editor with Troma Entertainment in Long Island City. During my time at Troma, I edited the promotional video for the 2013 TromaDance Film Festival, held in historic Asbury Park, New Jersey. The promo was thrice screened at the festival itself, alongside titles including the critically-acclaimed documentary Évocateur: The Morton Downey Jr. Movie.
My percussion studies began at age 10, and lead to my joining the Elon University Percussion Ensemble from Fall 2009-Spring 2012. In March of 2012 the group recorded the winter holiday album “Lo, How a Rose…”, featuring original compositions and all-percussion arrangements of classic holiday tunes from the group membership. Contributions included my own arrangement of Handel’s Hallelujah Chorus.
I’m very proud of my editing/sound design for the film Focus, which I completed during my time living and working in Los Angeles during Summer 2011. The film received the 2012 Bronze Telly Award for Non-Broadcast Productions – Editing which I share with the film’s director David Gwynn, an excellent filmmaker and really great guy!
I hope you enjoy what you see (and hear) in my portfolio.
