EDITING PORTFOLIO

2018 Editing Reel


 

Trade Show // 'Partner Montage'

Editing videos from the trade-show floor presents the exciting challenge of getting the highest quality edit in a short time with limited resources. I'm particularly proud of this one, in which I assembled over a dozen full interviews (without transcripts) in one day. I paid special attention to the narrative flow, taking us on a journey from thesis, to potential challenges, to how NVIDIA helps partners overcome and succeed.  

 

TEASER // 'CSR 2018' 

Over the past month, I've edited a series of videos for NVIDIA showcasing their AI technology and the road ahead. The series was kicked off with this short teaser. I enjoyed distilling each 'character' in the series down to their essential insights and motivations to do what they do. "AI is the most exciting, most promising way of making the world more beautiful."

 

Official Trailer // 'Mr. Peterson' 

Every project requires a different approach. For "Mr. Peterson," I focused on an edit that lets dialogue breathe and shots play out. It was a great change of pace for me as an editor, and leads to a film that draws you in with its thoughtful use of quiet. 

 

Experimental // 'Burst' 

From time to time, I like to document moments and then cut them in interesting and experimental ways. These pieces allow me to play with pace and music, exploring ideas and potentially discovering techniques to use in  future narrative projects. If nothing else, the edits are opportunities to soak in great music and nostalgic images.
