Beth Sepulveda
Video Editor & Motion Graphics Artist Manassas, VA, USA
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I have worked in the post-production field for 14 years. I specialize in motion graphics using After Effects, Avid editing, Illustrator, and Photoshop. I also have experience with Premiere and Final Cut Pro. I am always in search of learning new programs to add to my skill set. I am very comfortable working independently or with a client supervising the edit. The fall of 2016 was my sixth even-year political cycle, so I am well versed with quick turnarounds and the often chaotic life of the "political season". Recently, I have been doing a lot of motion graphic work, which I enjoy a great deal. Typically I am only given a script and voice track and take the reins as both designer and animator.
