Brent Streeper is an experienced editor and motion graphics artist who’s been working with Stephen at Westwood Creek Productions since 2009.  After graduating from the University of Utah in 2002 with a BA in Film Studies, he moved to Ashland, Oregon where, prior to joining the Thrive team, he had worked on four independent features as well as numerous commercials and short form projects.  Brent enjoys the technical side of the editorial process almost as much as the artistic process of creating an edit.  He believes that storytelling in any form can be a transformative tool and looks forward to continuing his work with socially meaningful projects.
