TECHNICAL DIRECTOR & POST SUPERVISOR, PICTURE EDITOR, SOUND DESIGNER / RE-RECORDING ENGINEER, CGI/VFX ARTIST

Highest clearance: Top Secret, Nuclear – US NAVY, Union and Non-Union projects

 

Member:

Motion Picture Editor’s Guild (Picture Editor), Motion Picture Sound Editors guild (Board Member),

Cinema Audio Society

 

Home Location:

New York City and Central FL private studios with full post production capability available. Additional, I

own a 40′ Class A RV with full production office and location post services on board allowing me to work

on location during production. Happy to travel worldwide.

 

Background:

Along with being a top notch story teller, I am an excellent and very fast editor. I have the ability to help

develop story lines and story arc from both raw footage (Reality) and planned productions/scripts (feature

films). Along with these qualities I can offer an integrated wholistic approach to story telling by editing both

picture and sound, and working both of these into a higher quality, well flowing story and product.

I’ve been doing sound editing, sound design, dialogue editorial, music editing, prep for mix, and rerecording

in my 5.1 room and in various Dub Stages in New York City, Hollywood, Orlando FL and in the

EU and Singapore since the late 1980’s. I have also designed and built a number of broadcast and film

facilities around the world. I primarily utilize Protools HD and Soundminer with a myriad of third party

plugins and tools for sound design and editing. My preferred re-recording/mixing console is the Euphonix

System 5, but I can work on all the high level main stream consoles. I also have a 5.1 calibrated mixing

room in my studio in Central Florida that I use for broadcast and film projects that do not have the budget

to mix on a dub stage.

I have been performing picture editorial since the mid 1990’s ranging from small indie short film projects

to full on feature film “studio” projects. Additionally I edit broadcast and multimedia projects for private

individuals, companies and government agencies such as the DOJ, DEA, Department of Defense and

others. I primarily utilize Premier and After Effects for picture editing, but I started on AVID and and

completely comfortable in FCP as well.

Along with my expertise in both sound and picture editing I have been doing visual effects, motion

graphics, and 3D CGI work for short and feature length projects. I utilize Cinema4D, After Effects,

Turbulence FD, Real Flow, X-Particles with many high end plugins and additional software for CGI, VFX,

set extensions, 3d modeling, plant modeling and creation, water, fire, explosions, and general dynamics

and physics modeling.

 

A few recommendations

 

“Georgia is a talented film professional and very inspiring to work with. Her ability to galvanize a team and push

forward through the most difficult and arduous production schedules are nothing short of miraculous. Her directing

work on the feature film Subconscious has been tireless and she has achieved so much from a small crew and

limited production budget. Only her dynamism and enthusiasm could have seen this through to completion. She is

also a very talented editor and 3d visual effects designer. I look forward to working with her again.”
