If you want an editor who is creative, thoughtful, fast, and fun to work with, Quan Tran is your man. I had the privilege of working with him often when I was a CD at The Richards Group. He nailed what I was looking for every time.
Now that I’m running my own small business, I value his attention to detail even more. He has excellent communication skills and helpful tools that make working remotely a breeze. Because of everything he brings to the table, I can’t recommend Quan highly enough.

His work ethic is unmatched and his eye for detail, flawless editing and astute selection of music sets him apart.
For many years he has selflessly helped my nonprofit producing powerful and emotive video content to raise thousands of dollars for children in need and is also a member of our Advisory Board. I cannot recommend Quan highly enough . . .
President and CEO
All of us at Dallas CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) are grateful for the incredible work Quan contributed to the creation of a video that helped raise awareness of the risks foster youth face of becoming sex trafficking victims.
Quan is the quintessential professional who was able to apply his impressive skills to a final product that was exactly matched to the audience and purpose of the project. The "I Stopped Counting" video is a powerful statement about why high-risk youth need a reliable, caring advocate to amplify their voices.

I’ve had the privilege of working with Quan on multiple projects over the years and I’m always excited for each opportunity. I feel a sense of calm over the entire production because of the level of trust, dedication, and expertise that he provides.
Quan is a machine, a “one-stop shop” . . . he is not only creative but very technical. His precision is matched by how pleasant he is to be around.
Associate Director Content Production
Encore Global - Virtual and Live Events
I absolutely love working with Quan. He is very responsive, organized and just a truly talented storyteller.
I love his work flow and collaborative nature . . . oh and he's a super nice human too which makes working with him extra special!
QuanZa, aka The DonMagicQuan, stands out as one of my favorite editorial partners. It’s a fun feeling when you concept, write and shoot a spot, and seemingly know what the first edit will look like… But, then you see a fresh perspective from your booth buddy that you didn’t really expect.
That’s what Quan brings to the party – an amuse-bouche.
Head of Sales
Quan is dedicated to his craft as an Editor, and tells a story with an emotion and sincerity that you can actually feel watching his work.
I've been lucky to experience firsthand his capable and genuine way of working with clients and in general with his coworkers. Quan is kind and just a lovely human being along with being a wonderful, talented Editor.
