    I'm a local 700 Editor in LA. I have over 6 years of experience working mainly on short form content such as: commercials, promos, show openers, shorts, web videos, and documentaries. I have BA in digital film. I'm extremely proficient in Avid Media Composer, Premiere Pro, and FCP. My experience in the editorial consists of: DIT, AE, Editor, and Colorist. My wide range of expertise help me see the project all the way through from start to finish and help me make the right decision to tell the story in the best way possible.

  4. This is Stopdown Pictures 4th photo shoot with the Ojeda family. This time we wanted to make a short Behind the scenes video to represent the relationship we are able to build with the Ojeda family and the variation among all the photo shoots.

    Also, not to mention, we were dying to film the entire shoot with our new BMCC. We filmed it in raw 2.5k.

    The post process is pretty simple. First, we make proxies of my raw clips in DaVinci Resolve. Second, we do the editing in Premiere Pro CS6. Third, once the picture is on lock we bring it back into Resolve where we link my media with the source (raw files). Forth, we grade the footage by using the Artist Color (which is an absolute PERFECTION). Fifth, we output a Prores HQ file and reimport that into Premiere Pro, where we make final adjustments.
