Malinda Zehner Guerra
My love for storytelling brought me into the entertainment industry as an actor, but I soon discovered that the role of editor is where I excel. I get to experience each character as I watch footage and pick performances that bring the story to life on the screen. Michelangelo felt his job as a sculptor was to liberate the sculpture from the stone, and this is how I see my role as an editor. Chiseling hours of footage down to reveal all the nuances and subtext that become the final version of the story.
I am passionate about projects that take on timely issues and bring new voices to the world. I have experience on all shapes and sizes of projects from high profile network shows to independent features. I work in all genres from drama to suspense to comedy, and can perform editorial magic with a little or a lot. I love the process of collaborating with a filmmaker to bring their vision to life and I’d love to work with you on your next scripted TV or feature project!
