Meet David Nitzsche

Today we’d like to introduce you to David Nitzsche.

Hi David, we’re thrilled to have a chance to learn your story today. So, before we get into specifics, maybe you can briefly walk us through how you got to where you are today?
After graduating from film school, some friends and I took a two-week road trip from Florida to LA, even hitting Mardi Gras along the way and surviving. When I arrived, I had no job, no money, and no idea what I would do.

A free couch on Criagslist led to becoming friends with the guy who knew another guy who needed an office assistant at a Production Company. That’s how I got my first job and how I immediately learned that it’s who you know and to be ready for any opportunity. That is still the mantra I live by to this day, and if I had to narrow it down, how I’ve gotten to be where I am.

Over the years, I’ve worked as a freelance editor at various companies and with many different directions. I was on staff for a bit at The Mill in LA but ultimately decided that I was happier and more productive out on my own. As life and work took a turn towards remote, I realized that I thrived this way and that my connection to people and companies got stronger. I took that to the next step and created my own post-production company, Workprint.

Alright, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall, and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
I usually don’t even have smooth days. You have to adapt to and learn from things that come up, good and bad. It’s one of the things I like most about the type of work I do, but more so, owning my own company.

The road to THIS point has been one of excitement, success, failure, and learning. I look forward to what the future brings.

Appreciate you sharing that. What else should we know about what you do?
Workprint is a creative post-production company founded on being straightforward and collaborative, dedicated to creating moments of hype, brand, story, and emotion. We’ve worked with NFL, Honda, Hyundai, Hyperice, Apple, Google, Netflix, and Samsung.

Since starting Workprint, I am most proud of the connections we’ve made to people and companies, which makes me even more proud of the work we’ve been able to do with them.

What was your favorite childhood memory?
What I liked most about my childhood was living close to my friends and running off with them to build things, create, explore, get in trouble, and be a kid. We would build ramps, play football in the street, go into the woods and build massive three-story forts. I don’t know where exactly my love and desire for editing came from, but I know that my love of freedom and creativity came from being a kid.
