Hello my name is Derek G. and I have been working in the film industry since High School. I graduated with a Film BFA from the Conservatory at SUNY Purchase. I use Final Cut Pro and Premiere to edit my documentaries and narrative films/videos and also have been hired as an Assistant Editor on several projects.

My films have been screened for Channel Thirteen, Tribeca Film Festival, CBS Sunday Morning and more. I use both editing systems for different projects and I edit a wide range of material so both come in handy for me. I hope to teach you the technique as well as skill for both or one of these programs.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Film

I have eight years of experience with Final Cut Pro and Adobe Premiere for Film/Video editing. I also graduated with a Film BFA at SUNY Purchase. I can not only teach the programs, but I can teach editing technique which is sometimes more important.

Photography

Since middle school I have done analog darkroom photography. This is what got me into film. I know Photoshop as well, if my student wanted to know digital photography.
