As an editor, I often assign myself projects that will push the boundaries of my knowledge of editing. I create projects that force me to go places, and learn new things, that the average project from a client might not offer. This is one of those projects...
Since its debut in 2011, "American Horror Story" has been one of my favorite original dramas. When I saw the opening to the first episode, I was floored by its look and feel as much as the technical aspects that went into it. It was then that I decided to take up filming and editing on the side and to hopefully one day be able to edit something as technical and creative as the "original opener" of the drama series that inspired me to explore this amazing medium.
At the end of 2013 I assigned myself the project "My American Horror Story". I wanted to see how close (in all aspects) I could come to the original opening. Presented here is my attempt at the award-winning intro of the original FX drama series.
"American Horror Story" can be seen on the FX Network.
