Larry Andersen is a freelance video editor, shooter, and occasional writer and director in the Boston area. His wealth of experience and broad talents make him a great guy to have on your side. 

Independent Film Festival Boston

Larry has had a  relationship with the Independent Film Festival Boston - Boston's biggest, best, and most independent film fest - for many years now.  They allow him to make new and very different festival opens  every year  - narrative, graphic, cinematic, wacky, what have you.  Below are a few of the festival opens Larry concepted,  wrote, directed,  AD'd, produced, shot, edited , and/or sang in. If Larry could make IFFBoston opens every day, he'd be an even happier man.

The 2016 Independent Film Festival Trailer featured a graphic approach, based on the print design of Jodi Vautrin.  Robert Jaret used a live string section in his simple elegant original score.  Very nice.

For the 2015 Independent Film Festival Boston trailer, we again went with a quirky narrative piece starring Frans Rijnbout, but with an expanded cast featuring a surprise guest. The audience reactions were priceless, including a nice shout out from Jason Segel on opening night. 

INDEPENDENT FILM FESTIVAL BOSTON 2014 OPEN/TRAILER

I was writer, director, editor, producer, and singer on this, our most popular open. Courtney and Patrick Ryan were behind the lens. Actor Frans Rijnbout killed it. Thanks to the Nantucket Lightship Museum in Boston Harbor for the great location. 

INDEPENDENT FILM FESTIVAL BOSTON 2012 OPEN/TRAILER

This was shot all hand held time-lapse on my  iPhone. Courtney Ryan has a few shots in there too. 

INDEPENDENT FILM FESTIVAL BOSTON 2013

This open was shot by me, Courtney Ryan and Patrick Ryan over a couple nights wandering Boston and Cambridge with a Canon C300. No one knew they were being shot...except for me in my cameo. Fun to shoot. Fun to edit.

INDEPENDENT FILM FESTIVAL BOSTON 2011

We pulled a handful of actors and recreated famous movie scenes with a green screen. It needed lots of compositing work. 

 Photos by Larry, mostly from his sailboat. which he loves. Spot pics come from lots of sources. Squarespace has been a mixed blessing in the making of this site.
