Judging Team 2021

As the 7th annual Top Shorts 2021 approaches, we're excited to announce this year's judging team!

Meet the team:


Dave Eichhorn is a multiple Emmy winning film and sound editor. Having worked on many Hollywood blockbusters, Dave has been awarded 3 Primetime Emmys, nominated 11 times, and has over 300 credits for clients like Disney, Netflix, HBO, Amazon, FOX, CBS, NBC, FX Network, Showtime, Hallmark, NatGeo, and more.

His rather unusual but comprehensive skillset as a film editor, supervising sound editor and re-recording mixer has landed him work with a who's who list of top-name Hollywood directors. He also has worked on numerous commercials and trailers for companies like Facebook, Subaru, and Nike.

Dave now owns and operates Post in the Woods in Los Angeles, a full-service post house geared specifically for indie filmmakers. "I just love working with talented new up-and-coming directors and producers, and they love having a one-stop-shop for professional film finishing services. I get to treat every project as if it were my own, while working one-on-one with filmmakers. This is easily the most creative and satisfying part of my career, and it’s a great way to utilize my 32 years of industry experience.”
