I started my journey as a filmmaker back home in Venezuela by joining the "Autonomous National Center of Cinematography" (CNAC), but my dream of becoming an editor began when I was introduced to the post-production side of film and discovered the "invisible art" of editing. As my passion for film intensified, I decided to move to Los Angeles to continue my film education. I completed a one-year filmmaking program at the New York Film Academy where I gained valuable experience and knowledge in all aspects of film: writing, producing, directing, camera and acting. Learning each facet of filmmaking has given me a great perspective on the editing process and showed me that the only way to make a successful project is to collaborate and understand all the departments involved.
Prior to creating my own freelance editing company AHVfilm, I worked as a Producer/Assitant Editor at a post-production company called MakiNE located in Venice, CA. Clients include Toyota, Lexus, Ford, CalLotto, COMAST Xfinity, AM/PM and T-Mobile. Through this position I gained valuable industry experience, excelled at recognizing and delivering on client needs, and managed challenges faced by the post production team outside the editing room. I am fully versed in codecs, specs, aspect ratios and any other technical information required by the client or other post productions steps (color correcting, audio design, scoring, etc.).
While I love all aspects of film, I excel as an editor and bring a unique eye to the process. I look forward to speaking with you about your current and future editing needs.
I have been in the industry since 2008.
