Try Sari Gilman. Great editor and bilingual. She lives in Sf
I live in New York and my spanish is average, but I'm a creative editor with 50 documentaries so far, some with awards, and I like your subject. My forte is structure and music. I'm sending attached my resume. I'd love to talk to you.
PS for Kevin Oliver: I have edited 2 documentaries long distance with the producers overseas and traveling, by using mirror drives : I sent the project via Internet and the producer would watch the cut and write comments. It worked beautifully.
Anybody in SF Bay Area want to give a good deal on a camera rental this weekend? I have an unpaid shoot for a non-profit Sat+Sun, almost any camera will work, budget $0-$200.

I would've volunteered but I am using it this weekend. Sorry, Chris!
Thanks anyway! Yeah this time actually a 7D would have worked fine, but no worries if no one volunteers I'll probably just pick up a PMW-200 from VMI for $225 not terrible..
Looking for an experienced doc editor in Boston area with skills in story structure and music. Will consider out of town if a good match! Now in pre-production/shooting material for grants/possible trailer.
I was at Steve Audette's documentary story structure workshop at NAB this year which was great as usual. He's a real nice guy, editor at Frontline so may be too pricey for a full edit but his assistant editor is also quite good I would say. I can forward your information along to those guys if you like they're both in Boston.

In response to Marilyn Pennel on Saturday 12 : I've edited in Boston several times for WGBH. And I have friends there. I can recommend a good DP. I'm now based in NY, with my own FCP. I have a long experience in documentaries about many different subjects. My forte is storytelling and structure, and music. I'm attaching a resume with my e-mail. What is your documentary about? Let me know if I can be of help.
Anyone have an AC they recommend in SF/Bay Area ?
MUST be good on a long lens and can navigate a RED Scarlet menu.
Shooting will be verite/observational. Some with FIZ-unit, some without.
