Bob Souders began his career as a sound and lighting designer, before becoming a sound mixer on tour and in Las Vegas for several well-known singing groups. He then discovered a love for film editing - a passion that has persisted for over 30 years. Some of his many editing credits include work on such television shows as The Wonder Years, Coach, Seinfeld for which he earned one of three primetime Emmy award-nominations), Murphy Brown, and Hannah Montana.

His advice for his students: “Be passionate about the filmmaking art in general, and doubly passionate about your particular craft within it.” Souders enjoys sharing his many experiences with his students who are eager to learn.
