Film/Video Editor, Photographer and Producer Peter Hollander has worked at the highest levels of film, television and photography for over twenty years.
Peter studied film and photography at Hampshire College in Amherst, MA with Independent filmmaker, Abraham Ravett, and famed "Photo League" photographer, Jerome Liebling-- a brilliant documentarian with his still camera, who was professor and long time advisor to video documentarian Ken Burns.
Starting out after college on his own in New York City, Peter worked as a First Assistant for star LIFE MAGAZINE photographer, John Dominis, PEOPLE MAGAZINE photographer, Peter Serling, and Commercial/Fine Arts photographer, Chip Forelli, whose work is featured as some of the default Black and White background screens on the Apple® Mac— the pier jutting out into the misty ocean, being one of them.
Peter began his producing and post-production career as an Associate Producer, and Director of Acquisitions, for Troma, Inc.-- “Home of the Toxic Avenger”.
From Troma, Peter went on to work as a VFX Coordinator on a multi-film-format visual effects project, “Secrets of the Luxor Temple”, for famed visual effects master Douglas Trumbull; VFX Supervisor on 2001: A Space Odyssey, Blade Runner, and Close Encounters of the Third Kind. Visual Effects Supervisor on this project was Joel Hynek, his assistant, John Gaeta-- both were future VFX Academy Award® winners for “What Dreams May Come”, and “The Matrix”, respectively.
As an Editor and Post-Production Supervisor, Peter has worked on the most technologically sophisticated IMAX films for Hollywood Studios. Projects have included documentaries, national commercials, sizzle reels and trailers for clients such as Disney, WGBH/NOVA, National Geographic, Dreamworks, Discovery Channel, Lifetime, ESPN, USA Networks, Showtime, Madison Square Gardens, Intel, GE, Microsoft, AT&T, IBM, Lindblad Expeditions, Teen Vogue, Ben and Jerry’s, CA Technology, The Annenberg Center for Photography, Andreessen Horowitz, and the Harvard Business School.
Throughout his career, Peter has worked as a commercial and fine arts photographer, shooting works in 4”x5”, 35mm, and digital for national brands, and private collectors.
His photography, and work as a finish carpenter, come together in his most recent series-- Stunning portraits of individual fall leaves printed on archival Hahnemühle fine art paper, framed in handcrafted wood frames sourced from reclaimed lumber.
