I worked as an editor and cinematographer for 7 years with academy award nominee William G.
I produced, directed and edited numerous fiction films, documentaries and animation/claymation/sfx films.
I have worked in every aspect of the movie, TV and documentary film business. I have been a TA in multiple classes: Video/Remote TV productions, Editing, After Effects Class. I have a Master of Fine Arts in Animation and I want really really would love to tutor film students. It is my specialty. I also was a sailing instructors for children 6 to 18 years old, handicapped adults and foster kids for 7 years.
I am a french citizen married to a Californian man, who also speaks French fluently. I moved to the USA in 1995 to start my studies. I lived in NYC for 3 years and then moved to LA, more precisely UCLA, where I obtained my bachelors in Film (Valedictorian) and an MFA in Animation. I also lived in Guatemala for 3 years and I just love to discover and learn new cultures! I have a more liberal approach to the French language, which is loaded with grammar rules and irregulars. If grammar makes you screech, I will be the perfect tutor for you. Now, If you cannot live without your grammar rule, then I will be honest and tell you to find a more conventional French tutor!
I went from being a lousy student in junior high school to becoming Valedictorian for my BA at UCLA. When I finally realized how easy studying could be, my grade just kept getting better and better. Organization, lists, breaking down homework and lessons into friendly information and positive reinforcement are the key to an efficient and happier student.
I worked as a film (16mm) editor when that still existed and believe me, without organization editing a feature film would have been impossible. I also produce many TV projects with remote TV Trucks and crews of 20. Organization, lists and keeping the focus on what's most important is essential for the success of the project and the crews' happiness!
