Lisa Shreve is a great editor and person to have on your team.  She works with focused intensity and commitment on projects.  She is conscientious, detail oriented and takes pride in her work.  She listens carefully to producers, takes notes well and is willing to make changes and give suggestions.  Her goal is the same as yours, to make the best possible outcome, efficiently.  She works quickly, makes intuitive choices, and has a great eye for the best shots

Lisa Shreve proved to be an excellent hire and a joy to work with on a 1-hour special for National Geographic. Her ability to take the lead in the edit while managing her colleague, polish cuts and address notes both quickly and effectively made her the perfect match for our tight deadline and aggressive re-work. I look forward to bringing Lisa in for many more projects to come.

Lisa Shreve edited my independent film Soldier’s Heart, which turned out to be a very wise move on my part. Lisa provided smart ideas and brought her wealth of experience to the construction of each of the incarnations that made Soldier’s Heart the fine film that it became. She works carefully and is a great collaborator. She really captured the spirit of our film along with serving the necessary requirements.  I would highly recommend Lisa for any kind of film editing, because I know her other work as well — she can expertly edit a feature — a documentary — a short. And if I can help to shed any further light regarding Lisa, please contact me at

Lisa is a creative and conscientious editor.  On my film, Created Equal: Clarence Thomas in His Own Words, she served as an associate producer during the early R&D phase and then as an editorial consultant.  Her dedication to the project, from beginning to end, was remarkable.  Many of her early ideas and insights are in the final film, as well as her many contributions throughout.  She is the consummate professional.

I was very lucky to have Lisa work with me on my documentary about film composers, Lights! Action! Music! She is an excellent editor and a great collaborator and did very creative work on an extremely tight schedule and budget. I recommend her very highly.”

Dan Lieberstein, Producer/Director  Lights! Action! Music!

Lisa Shreve is my favorite kind of editor because she is a true collaborator. Everything is off the table except how to make the film better. Strong opinions but open minded – respectful of my choices as director. Lisa cut Sex Workers or Victims with me, a film about American teens in the US sex trade – she cuts with lot of authority which was perfect for an investigative film. This film won the 2009 Gracie Award for Outstanding Documentary Medium Length format. It was part of Oxygen’s Who Cares About Girls series hosted by Lisa Ling.
