After his start as a single freelance video editor, Ian Pearson started Editextreme in 2005 and the name has always represented the philosophy of pushing the limits of quality and value in the provision of video editing services: Whatever challenges their projects have faced, Editextreme has always been able to create a great video edit.
By 2010, Ian had expanded Editextreme into a small and independent video editing & post-production video facility, serving numerous clients of various sizes (including as many as three television programs at once).
With the advent of 64-bit video editing software that employs magnetic timelines, Editextreme can now deliver even better quality in a fraction of the time and cost that we could in 2010.
From creating video outlines and scripts, to field production and videography services and right up to finished video edits, Editextreme has created a start-to-finish philosophy that provides clients with all they need to produce a winning project.
Over the years, Ian has learned that every project, whether large or small, presents a new opportunity to become better at doing what he loves.
Each client’s satisfaction is not just an integral part of the job, but the most important reward and he deeply values all the relationships that he gains though his work.
It is always his sincere desire that working with Editextreme will be a professionally and personally rewarding experience for everyone involved.

After completing his film and video diploma program at Trebas Institute, Chris was referred to Editextreme by them as a star pupil and highly talented young video editor.
Chris arrived for his first day at Editextreme, only to find 3 video editors overwhelmed with work. With little time available to actually train him, Ian instead handed him a drive and a paper edit and asked him to “do the best he could”. Well, Chris performed masterfully and has since become our go-to editor.
Chris has also pursued a handful of short film projects, receiving an award for his student film “Balance” at the 2014 Trebas Film Festival.
His years of YouTube experience have garnered over 38,000 subscribers with 150,000-250,000 views per month.
From filming on-site at the YouTube Space Toronto studios and various short film shoots, to personally producing promo videos for ToyHax and an educational video for BC Assessment, to hosting and performing on-camera and in front of live audiences, Chris has a passion for many aspects of media production and post-production.
