Shoot, edit, share.

I am editing a series of short films with an ethnographic focus for documentary filmmaker Isabelle Carbonelle’s Izaca Productions. The footage comes from around the world and offers just a glimpse into a space, place, or people. Check out shooteditshare.tv for more about this project and to see work by other editors.

Making Champagne Explode: Actually Quite Difficult

Every month, Affinity Lab puts together a this video “calendar” which serves as a fun reminder to members about what’s going on, and a promo to get non-members involved in events.
