Visual Data editor Ray Clarke recently worked on a project for the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures exhibit called “Significant Movies and Moviemakers: Stories of Cinema,” which celebrates film history. Films highlighted include Casablanca, Boyz n the Hood and the documentaries of Lourdes Portillo, a Mexican American documentary filmmaker. Clarke was brought in to create the exhibition documentary celebrating Portillo and her contribution to film and culture.
Clarke, who has a rich editing background, spent his early days in the industry working with editors who juggled several projects at once, and this way of working stuck with him as his career progressed. Currently, he works on feature and episodic content compositing visual effects, offline editing, online conforming and titling of episodic TV shows, music videos and trailers, and commercials.
