Andreina Velazquez

Hello, I’m Andreina. I’m a Video Editor based in Austin, Texas. I work on commercials and docs and my favorite subjects are: pop culture, art, design, fashion, family, and Latin America. My first job in video production was in 2016 as an assistant to the Executive Producer of a boutique production company in NYC. At the production office I found myself developing close relationships with editors as I curiously stepped in and out of their edit bays. After a few months of observing editors at work and learning how videos are made, I realized that editing was “my thing” and that editors were “my people”. I expressed this epiphany to the Executive Producer who then promoted me to in-house Assistant Editor and I’ve been learning and growing as an editor ever since. To-date I have edited digital and broadcast projects for: HBO Max, The National Gallery of Art in DC, History Channel, Oxygen, Investigation Discovery, HLN, IBM, Weather.com, Mastercard, Chick-Fil-A, Fujifilm, Cigna, Lysol, Ebay and more. Video editing is a fusion of everything I love: pictures, sound, emotion and mood. I am endlessly fascinated by the way all of these elements plus a great team can work together to tell a compelling story. Please email me at andreinavedits@gmail.com if you would like to work together some day :)

I know I have on a scarf( indoors) in my profile picture, but don't hold that against me. It was cold in that restaurant, and it was needed. Scarf aside, I'm a great editor. Story, along with finding the microscopic nuances that bring a story together is my strong suit. Minute details enable large emotional swells as well as comic relief. In my experience having a great sense of balance helps the narrative evolve and conclude in satisfying manner for the audience. I’m also great with music and finding the score that helps the pace and soundscape of the story.

Andre Martins

Growing in a creative hub like Lisbon shaped my passion for film. I began my career by directing a short-cut about my late grandmother, that 12 minute film gave me the way to express myself and use this powerful medium to bring stories alive. After finishing film school I ventured into the advertising world where I had the chance to work with renowned brands, agencies and TV-Networks. Looking for a new adventure I moved to the southern side of the world. In Mozambique I had the chance to go back to my roots of storytelling and was able to capture authentic stories, from the strong women in the local markets to young female scientists working in conservation of one of the most biodiverse parks in the world, Gorongosa National Park. Today, in Washington D.C. I am using the same tools I learned in my first film, by creatively helping several political candidates, campaigns, NGOs and TV-Networks and sharing the powerful untold stories that can change the world.

I am an editor and filmmaker living on Ohlone land in Oakland, California. My work ranges from American Masters style documentaries, to vérité, to essay films. I’ve also worked on segments for The Center for Investigative Reporting and Frontline. I believe that my degree in Architecture has uniquely prepared me to play with time, light, and space in film. Also, having worked as a producer and directed my own experimental films, enables me to understand the collaborative process between director, producer, and the footage. I love working on films that shed light and give voice to situations and people who may not be seen otherwise. As an editor I challenge myself to find lyricism in a moment or scene. My filmography includes documentaries funded by Latino Public Broadcasting such as “Pedro E. Guerrero: A Photographer’s Journey,” by Raymond Telles (PBS American Masters) and “Beyond La Bamba,” by Marco Villalobos, and experimental essay films such as Dolissa Medina’s “Cartography of Ashes” for the centennial of the 1906 San Francisco earthquake, and Anne McGuire’s “Oh Hi Anne” a short film celebrating George Kuchar. My own film “Polvo” received a Creative Capital grant, premiering at Rotterdam International Film Festival in 2012, winning first prize at VideoEx International Experimental Film & Video Festival (Zurich) and screening at MoMA’s Documentary Fortnight. I am currently wrapping up post-production on “A Thousand Pines” directed by Noam Osband and Sebastián Díaz. I’m looking for a new project to sink my teeth into!

Art has always been a part of my life and by the age of fifteen I knew I wanted to be a filmmaker. I started my professional career as an Art Historian which later I combined with a degree in Film Production. My theoretical training in the arts as well as my hands-on film education have provided me an artistic and technical fusion for my work. A year after my graduation from Art History in 2005 I moved to South Florida where I studied Film Production and graduated in 2010. While in South Florida I began filming a group of gender benders who created an independent organization called Drag it Out, based in Ft. Lauderdale. This organization explored gender and self-expression through a series of free workshops in the art of Drag Queen and King. Ten years later I am taking on again the project to tell the story of former members, coaches and draglins (workshop students), to explore where the LGBTQ+ community is at today and to take a deep look at where we are, as humanity, in gender related themes and issues. In between those ten years I moved back to Mexico City where I worked for 4 years at a post-production company as chief editor. From 2016 and on I have being collaborating in several projects as Assistant Editor, Junior Editor, Senior Editor and Colorist as well for Netflix, Amazon and HBO. Documentaries, docuseries for web, commercials, music videos, feature and short films and series are the kind of productions I have been working on for the past 6 years. Currently I am the lead editor for a documentary series called Héroes verdes, project in post-production phase.

My name is Anand Mahalingam. I've been a video editor of short-form material for almost 10 years and I'm dying to get into the long-form space. I've edited mainly for social media channels in the past with lengths ranging from 15 seconds all the way up to 22 minutes. Like I mentioned before, I'd like to get into a more long-form, "serious" space. My documentary experience is small, but I have co-produced and co-edited a documentary short series at one of my jobs appropriately titled "Dance Docs", where we highlighted various dancers in the Los Angeles area in short 60 second pieces (which we later lengthened to ~two minutes for YouTube). I'm just happy to be here and connect with other like-minded people, but I'd really enjoy working on a feature-length doc at some point soon!

I'm a Honduran-American filmmaker and editor based in Los Angeles. I started documentary work with a lot of community-based and social justice-oriented films, especially around prison abolition, housing rights, and immigration. My first Assistant Editor work was with the documentary Since I Been Down, which centers around education activism within prisons and has won a number of festival awards. Recently, my own experimental feature doc, A Human Year Is Seven Earth Years, won first place at the Bienal de la Imagen en Movimiento in Buenos Aires. I really believe in documentary as a tool for social change--some of my favorites are: The Emperor's Naked Army Marches On, Who Killed Vincent Chin, The Thin Blue Line, and From the Other Side (Chantal Akerman). Poets like Etel Adnan and Frank Stanford are influences as well. I've learned a lot from working as a commercial editor, but I'm most passionate about exploring human stories that can help us cultivate empathy for ourselves, others, and our planet. Don't be a stranger!

When I was a young teenager, I filmed short corny skits with my cousins on my family's point and shoot Canon camera and edited them on Windows Movie Maker (these videos could definitely serve as embarrassing blackmail today). I never realized at that initial time that I wanted this hobby to grow into a lasting career. During my high school years, I joined Downtown Community Television Center’s impactful youth media program. Through collaborative and individual work, I gained tactical and emotional filmmaking skills, particularly in documentary, that molded me for my college career. While at School of Visual Arts, I edited numerous short narrative films. It was until I entered my senior year of college that I realized I wanted to return to the form of filmmaking that I felt close to – documentary. I yearned for my thesis film to be something personal; similar to those corny skits I did as a teenager, I wanted my family to be involved. What unfolded was an emotional piece about my dad, his brothers, and my grandmother reflecting on the death of my grandfather, who sadly took his life a few months after I was born. Seeing the reaction this film had on my family and the Guyanese diaspora (the film screened at a Guyanese film festival) made me want to continue this journey of documentary. Throughout my path thus far, editing has always been my favorite part of the filmmaking process. I adore the idea of possibly shifting a story in a variety of ways through my fingertips. Currently, I am a video editor at NBC and have edited numerous short form doc features and food series/segments. I am also seeking my Master’s Degree at Hunter College under the Integrated Media Arts program with several documentary courses under my belt.
