Specializing in true crime and other dark stuff
Fernanda is a sunny person who is fascinated by the dark side of humanity: cults, conspiracies, scandals, political corruption ... anything for which there's a circle in hell. Mysteries, secret societies, schemes and fraud are high on the list, too. Chilling examinations of the human condition really hit the spot for her.
She's a seasoned editor who you can count on to hit the ground running, help craft the story and solve problems creatively. She has an intuitive sense of rhythm and knows how to build dramatic tension without going over the top.
Being a good editor is as much about being a gold star teammate as having technical chops. Fernanda is committed, upbeat ... a friend in the edit bay and beyond.
Fernanda was born in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. She studied film creative writing at Hampshire College, MA and moved to California in 2017. She's a member of ACE (American Cinema Editors), the ADE (Alliance of Documentary Editors) and EDT (Brazilian Editor's Association).
