Emelia DeLeon-Bullard is in the Film and Broadcast discipline at Tribeca Flashpoint Academy with the hopes of going into post-production as a focus study with the desire to edit films, trailers and music videos in the future. She would love to work on all sorts of genres in film to broaden her film editing experience.
Some of Emelia’s project highlights would be her very first short “Memory Box” which is a film she made all by herself. Another highlight would be her second short “The Forgotten Lunch” which is a project she is currently working on for her first year project at Tribeca Flashpoint Academy. She is very proud of her accomplishments but would really like to expand them with her upcoming projects.
Skills that relate to her work would be attention to detail, a good sense of pacing and a decent knowledge of technology. She believes that those types of skills are needed to become a good film editor. When it comes to needing a college degree, Emelia thinks that in the filming industry one doesn’t need any special degree because sometimes art, creativity and expression cannot be taught by a book but more so by personal experience. Some of her interests that relate to her work would be her love for music. Music is a great source that will help one with learning beats and flow, which are great skills to have when it comes to film editing.
Emelia’s long-term career aspiration would be to edit a film along side her favorite director Danny Boyle. Emelia loves Boyle’s sense of pacing and tone he puts into his films, such as his Oscar winning film Slumdog Millionaire and his Oscar nominated film 127 Hours. She would be truly honored to edit a film for him. Emelia would also love to work for the company 20th Century Fox or Columbia Entertainment because she has always enjoyed their films and would love to be part of the team that makes them. Perhaps after working for one of those companies, she would like to do some freelance work that would get recognized from time to time.
