Personal statement

My goal is to bring quality films to the viewers where they can experience and feel the characters in the show. Part of this objective is to cut down violent shots, unnecessary movements and vague scenes. I have edited a wide variety of film shoots from commercial, musical, to production shows. My over two years experience in film editing in two different companies have strengthened my innate skills in editing shoots, audio compression, and scene and angle selection. With extensive experience in filmmaking and equipped in using film-editing equipments, I am confident that I can produce coherent films that will truly convey the director’s vision.
