To whom it may concern,
My name is J.P. Goethals and I am very interested in working as a film editor. I am currently a graduate of Santa Clara University, where I studied video production, and I want to dive into the entertainment industry as quickly as possible. In my years at Santa Clara, I worked a great deal with media production, working in studio production teams and also editing short films. I have also worked in the Leavey School of Business at Santa Clara creating videos that promoted the school to potential students. I know what it takes to catch the eye of the youth today, and I think that I would be a good addition to a post production team. I am a very hardworking person, and I would not take this opportunity lightly, putting everything into the job if given the chance to do so. If there is anything other than my resume that I could send you, please let me know. I have several DVDs of projects that I have worked on that I can send you if you would like.
I have been in the industry since 2008.
