Juan David Romeroby 7 months ago
I'm a video editor specialized in humanitarian documentary filmmaking living and working in Paris, France. I am fluent in Spanish, English, and French.

My clients include United Nations and Médecins Sans Frontières (Doctors Without Borders). Due to the COVID-19 crisis, I'm only available for remote work. I have experience in video editing and 2d motion graphics. I've edited a variety of videos from interviews, to corporate, to creative, to educational, to journalistic and documentary.

I shot, filmed and edited the films “Unbroken Paradise” and “An Iraqi Belly Dancer.” The first one has played at festivals such as the 2018 Global Impact Film Festival in Washington D.C.; the 2018 Global Migration Film Festival organized by the International Organization for Migration (IOM), the U.N. Migration Agency; and the 2019 Amnesty International Human Rights Film Festival in France. The latter has played at the 2018 East End Film Festival in London; Reeling: The 36th Chicago LGBTQ+ International Film Festival; the Phenicien International Film Festival in France; the 7th Diaspora Film Festival in South Korea; the Kashish Mumbai Queer International Film Festival in India; and the Mawjoudin Queer Film Festival in Tunisia, the first and only LGBT film festival in that country and the entirety of North Africa.

Presently I am based out of Paris, France, where I work as a freelance video editor and journalist with Médecins Sans Frontières (Doctors Without Borders). Previously I volunteered at refugee camps and with refugee-aid organizations in France and Greece such as FEOX and ActForRef. Before that, I worked in Washington D.C. as communications officer at the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS).

I received my Bachelor of Arts in English Literature and a minor in Film from the University of Central Florida in 2015. I trained as a multimedia journalist via internships and workshops at newspapers and magazines such as The New Republic, the Orlando Business Journal, Science magazine, the Central Florida Future, and the Scripps Howard Foundation Hispanic Link News Service. I am also an alumni of the NAHJ/Knight Foundation Student Project initiative and the Newseum Institute’s Chips Quinn Scholars Program for Diversity in Journalism.
