Searching for a LA-based, PBS-style Trailer Editor

Dear Producers Academy Alum, I'm in the midst of wrapping up "Tales of the Waria," our ITVS-funded documentary on a transgender Muslim community in Indonesia. We're searching for an editor in Los Angeles who specializes in cutting trailers for more meditative, PBS documentaries (as opposed to the usual action-driven Hollywood fare). If you have any recommendations, please do send them my way! Happy 2011, Kathy Huang 650.814.1017kathyhuangfilms@gmail.com…See More

Biography

Kathy Huang first developed a passion for documentary filmmaking in the dusty fields of South Texas. Inspired by her experiences teaching at-risk youth along the U.S.-Mexico border, she produced her first documentary Scribble’s Creations (2004). Since then, her short documentaries have continued to focus on underrepresented communities. Jaywalking (2005), an ode to a San Francisco drag king community, won Best Documentary at the PlanetOut Awards and played at the Miami Gay and Lesbian Film Festival. Night Visions (2005), a young soldier’s meditation on the Iraq War, screened at the Tribeca Film Festival and SILVERDOCS and was the recipient of the War and Peace Award from the Media That Matters Film Festival. Miss Chinatown U.S.A. (2006), a portrait of a young woman competing in a Chinese-American beauty pageant, also screened at the Tribeca Film Festival and was broadcast on regional PBS stations.

Kathy holds a M.A. in Documentary Film Production from Stanford University and works as a freelance producer and shooter in Los Angeles. She is currently directing and shooting Tales of the Waria, an ITVS-funded project about a transgender community in Indonesia.

Just thought I'd let you know that Matt Burrows has the best excuse for being late to join us on this network:

"My wife was ordered into bed rest by her doctor two weeks ago and then we had our baby 2 days early -- he was supposed to be born today (July 26) but we had a bit of an emergency Friday night and he was born Saturday morning. We get discharged tomorrow so hopefully I'll be able to get myself up on the site tomorrow night or Wednesday night."

I thought you might like to know and send congrats! It's mburrows@scetv.org -- until he has a free minute...
