I started my journey as a filmmaker back home in Venezuela by joining the "Autonomous National Center of Cinematography" (CNAC). My dream of becoming an editor began when I was introduced to the post-production side of film and discovered the "invisible art" of editing. As my passion for film intensified, I decided to move to Los Angeles to continue my film eductation. I completed a one-year film-making program at the New York Film Academy where I gained valuable experience and knowledge in all aspects of film: writing, producing, directing, camera and acting. Learning each facet of film-making has given me a great perspective on the editing process and showed me that the only way to make a successful project is to collaborate and understand all the departments involved.
For the last six years I have worked on several independent projects as a freelance editor that include feature films, shorts films, documentaries and music videos. My most recent project was a horror film titled "Mile Marker 7" that was recently picked up by IFC Nights and HBO International.
Prior to creating my own freelance editing company AHVfilm, I worked as a Producer/Editor at a post-production company called MakiNE located in Venice, CA. Clients include Toyota, Lexus, Ford, CalLotto, COMAST Xfinity, AM/PM and T-Mobile. Through this position I gained valuable industry experience, excelled at recognizing and delivering on client needs, and managed challenges faced by the post production team outside the editing room. I am fully versed in codecs, specs, aspect ratios and any other technical information required by the client or other post productions steps (color correcting, audio design, scoring, etc.).
While I love all aspects of film, I excel as an editor and bring a unique eye to the process. I look forward to speaking with you about your current and future editing needs.
