Hello and thanks for stopping by.                    I am a videographer & video editor based in San Diego, CA.  I have worked in broadcast television for over eighteen years shooting and editing news, government, independent film, corporate video and documentaries.  Have a project to shoot or edit?  I can help.  Take a look at my work to get a feel for my skills and style.  I hope you like what you see and hire me for your next project.





“The short answer is, Brian McHugh will be an asset to your organization. He came in to our shop at a time when we were short-handed and didn't have a lot of time to babysit or micromanage. We needed a guy who knew what he was doing, could be pointed at a project and execute. He delivered. His work is solid, his attitude is great and I would hire him again without hesitation.”

Jon Brady, Executive Producer, News Director, CW6

“It is always great to work with someone who gets it...someone who can take a project from conception to completion while always looking for ways to make it better.

With Brian you are assured of several things...he shows up with a great attitude, he is a team player and he loves what he does. Brian McHugh would be a great asset to any production.”

Keith Ritchie, Producer/Director, KPNX TV 12

“Brian is one of the rare professionals. He is both reliable and extremely creative. Brian was one of the 'go-to' editors. I could always count on him to deliver quality shows on his own. His artistic eye is just as impressive as his work ethic. He took it upon himself to develop, shoot, produce, and edit a weekly story on local artists. These stories showcased his love for the arts as well as his drive to deliver quality television. I believe Brian would be a addition to any company looking for that team player that can also deliver a quality product.”

Bill Lamoreaux, Chief Editor, KNXV-TV ABC15

“I had the opportunity to work with Brian on a multi-day conference with plenty of crazy hours and a multitude of locations.   Brian was incredibly professional, punctual and communicative throughout the entire process and honed in on the shots that were most important to us.  He was able to capture the spirit of the event with his own flair and perspective, and we’re very much looking forward to working with him again!”

Jessica Whitney, Executive Producer,  ZOē Productions

“In a production environment that also produced a clerical record, Brian was dependable, consistent, and enthusiastic. Brian understood our format and our standard for the final product and he delivered. Brian is  professional and what he doesn't  know, he takes the time to learn”.

Jesse Alvey, A/V Production Specialist Supervisor at Tennessee General Assembly

"Brian has been an extremely conscientious and dedicated editor who can always be counted on, even when things get tough.  He consistently comes prepared to take on whatever assignment he is given and does so with enthusiasm.  He has always been a pleasure to work with and would be a welcome addition to any production."

Guy Gunderson, Media Manager, KNBC Channel 4

"Brian McHugh is a not only a pleasure to work with, but is adept and skilled as well. His creative input and focus is outstanding and commendable. Moreover, when you work with Brian, you get a well rounded individual that cares about the big picture as well. He has freely shared his immense experience with youth at our youth target film festival through conducting workshops. His involvement with artists and the creative process is nothing short of outstanding. His presence and engagement with ‘film and video production interested’ youth during the event was truly inspiring.

Matt Morrison, Director ShopSquawk 501c3 and NextGen Fest

“Brian is an energetic, creative talent who is always willing to try something new and go the extra mile to get the best results. His upbeat, can-do attitude makes him a pleasure to work with and the way he delivers on his promises, and often exceeds them, makes him an ideal collaborator on your next creative endeavor!”
