Jemma Byrne, Freelance Video Editor
WIFVNE’s April Member Spotlight is on Jemma Byrne – Freelance Video Editor
What’s the best part about your work?
The best part about my job is the variety of projects I work on. I could be editing an educational video one day and an interview with the CEO of a huge company the next.
What challenges do you think you’ve faced in this industry?
My biggest challenge is being taken seriously. My technical skills are often overlooked by both men and women.
How long have you been a WIFVNE Member?
What advice would you give to a new female filmmaker?
Be prepared to work twice as hard for half the acknowledgment.
What goals do you have for this year?
I would like to have a rough cut of my feature-length documentary finished! My co-director and I have been working on it for over three years now and are knee deep in post production.
Upcoming Events or Announcements? What are you working on?
I’m currently working on a series of videos with /newsroom365 about IoT and augmented reality.
