All 1 Media traces its history back to Southern California where Dave Muehsam first began editing videotape in 1982 at a small television production facility on Melrose Avenue in Hollywood. About eight months later, during a weekend editing session, a client said "Anyone who works as hard as you do should be working for himself." That made a lot of sense and about a month later, I found some studio space available in the San Fernando Valley and set up shop doing business for the first time as West Coast Post. One of my memorable early projects was working with film producer Gary Goetzman and iconic musician David Byrne way back in 1983. Jonathan Demme had just wrapped "Stop Making Sense" and was preparing for world-wide release. I remember David Byrne snoozing on the edit room sofa as we shot and posted this promo in one day (Click here for a humorous look at that early video using split-screen techniques as David Byrne interviews himself). After a couple of years in the Valley, word-of-mouth spread and soon I was looking for a larger space. I opened my new studio on Lankershim Boulevard near Universal Studios and enjoyed life there until 1993. Soon, the need for additional editing suites sent me back out looking for new digs. I landed on Olive Avenue in beautiful downtown Burbank across the street from Dick Clark Productions, but the 1994 Northridge earthquake rendered the building unsafe and once again we found ourselves packing up and moving. This time it was just a few blocks down Olive Avenue towards Buena Vista into a newer, safer 2800 square-foot building where I hired a small support staff and continued working. It was here at 2607 West Olive Avenue that we advanced the craft and honed our skills up until 2004 when I decided it might be nice to retire early and leave crowded Southern California. So we sold most of the heavy equipment, sold the business and moved East so the kids could be near Grandma. I soon discovered that retirement is for really old people and I wasn't ready to stop working yet, so I bought some shiney new computers, came up with a new name and jumped back into the video business. Now I'm having fun again and enjoy putting all my experience to use solving problems, getting the job done and doing things right the first time.
