It’s all about the story.
I’m Rachel Alison, a video editor based in Los Angeles. I love working on news and editorial content, as well as the creative, more narrative-driven stuff. There is a story to be found in everything, and it’s my job as the editor to help tell it in the most engaging way possible. (Honestly, my secret weapon there is to pay a lot of attention to the sound design.)
I am NLE agnostic – I’ll work on whatever system you prefer. Left to my own devices though, I am most comfortable in the Adobe Suite.
I’ve been editing since 2010, after graduating from the University of Glasgow with my master’s degree, and from UCLA’s school of Theater, Film, & Television with my bachelor’s.
Lately, I’ve been inspired by the editing in films and shows like Baby Driver, Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, Roma, Dear White People, and Maniac. In my spare time, I love traveling, wine-tasting, playing the odd video game, and hanging with my cat The Stig.
