I've had the privilege of editing Amœba and co-editing End Of The World Tour. Editing two distinct genres and styles expanded my abilities as an editor. I've explored reconstructing structure, built suspense, played with illusion and reality along with so much more. With "Amœba", I enjoyed editing the surrealist aspects of the film and playing with memory. With "End of The World Tour", I adored constructing a fun and heartfelt narrative about a relationship between a mother and daughter.
With the trailer for "White Lobster", I've had the immense pleasure of developing the protagonist's world sonically so the audience connects with it emotionally.
Investigating the development of editing techniques in early cinema and how they construct the perception of time. I explore three different types of techniques that were developed in early cinema: continuity, parallel and montage. Studying key filmmakers, George Méliès, D. W. Griffith, Edwin S. Porter and Sergei Eisenstein and their films to track the creation of narrative editing techniques and how they elicit temporal perception.
