EDWARD JEFFREY

FACULTY - EDITING

I have been drawn to visual imagery since my childhood, as a result of which in my early career, I spent time on cinematography and the science of images. However, once I started editing my own projects and learned the process of connecting shots and hitting the right emotions by timing the shots, I fell in love with editing and shaping stories on the editing table.

My career as an Editor started off very early in a feature film back in 2012, soon after my B. Sc. in Visual Communication and a Film Editing course in NFDC. Now, I’m a freelance Video Editor & Colorist with 10 years of experience. I have produced work for the web, the big screen, and have also produced numerous music videos, short films, and commercial projects. In the past 6 years, I have found a passion for teaching, and wish to inspire and excite students with my love for editing and storytelling.
