About Me

My name is Samuel Im, a video editor based in the Bay Area. I dedicate my life to visualize the beauty of motion and movement. My skills are focused on video editing with motion graphics and audio. I adopt my creative sense of motion and timing skills from 3D Character Animation BFA background to editing style, bringing out a powerful and dynamic feel. I also have experience in live-stage production, such as planning, installing, operating videos, sound, lighting systems, and stage building.
