Fernanda Tornaghi

Fernanda is a sunny person who is fascinated by the dark side of humanity: cults, conspiracies, scandals, political corruption ... anything for which there's a circle in hell. Mysteries and secret societies are high on the list, too. Chilling examinations of the human condition really hit the spot for her. ​ She's a seasoned editor who you can count on to hit the ground running, help craft the story and solve problems creatively. She has an intuitive sense of rhythm and knows how to build dramatic tension without going over the top. ​ Being a good editor is as much about being a gold star teammate as having technical chops. Fernanda is committed, upbeat ... a friend in the edit bay and beyond. ​ Fernanda was born in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. She studied film at Hampshire College, MA and moved to California in 2017.

Flávia De Souza

I started working in post production in NYC in the 90s. Since then, I've worked on various forms of unscripted media - reality TV and cooking shows, institutional videos and news stories. In more recent years, I've been lucky enough to have cut several documentary films - Aftershock was the most recent one, which premiere at the 2022 Sundance Film Festival and was a winner of their Impact for Change Special Jury Award. I've been a mentor for the Karen Schmeer Diversity Program and an advisor for the Brown Girls Doc Mafia's Feedback Loop. I received a MFA in Photography and Related Media from the School of Visual Arts. At the moment I'm close to wrapping a feature-length film that explores climate gentrification in Miami, and will next work on a series that deals with civil rights. I love that the process of editing a film allows me to become a temporary expert in topics I'd never study otherwise. I can't resist a charismatic character, and the possibility of becoming immersed in their world often pushes me to take a job.

Our team was invited to participate at the conference Podfest and at The Gotham Week. Following such rewarding experience, Spotify hired our team to mentor three participants from their Latinx Sound Up Program and produce their podcast pilots. Sound Up aims to diversify the voices in the podcasting space. In collaboration with The Cooper Union, I spearheaded the Creative Direction and Production of the international conference “Bitter Laughter,” which centered around the work of political cartoonists from LatAm and Spain.
