Colyn Emery Writing Digital Media Hire Me

I specialize in video editing, visual effects, motion graphics, animation, audio and digital mattes. I mostly use Adobe Creative Cloud. Past/present clients include The Hard Times, Funny or Die, Fresh Mechanism and many others. I have edited video for television and the web, and I worked as a digital media encoding technician for 8 years.


I have an MFA degree in Broadcast Cinema from Art Center College of Design, where I studied production, editing, animation (2D/3D), storyboarding and sound design. My current focus is new media and content marketing. I also love to make stock media (video, music, etc.) and comedy stuff.
