Victor Garnica is a filmmaking student at Academy of Art University, located in San Francisco, CA. He was born and raised in Caracas, Venezuela. From a young age, Victor has always been inspired by the process behind the camera, and how movies and TV shows are put together to create a single, cohesive final film.
During his schooling in Venezuela, Victor learned a lot about computer science, theatre, and music. These skills served as a basis for his beginning in film. During his free time as a teenager, he began experimenting with video editing and sound mixing, using his home computer to make songs and music videos. He also made a few homemade films with his friends for school assignments.
After graduating high school, he decided to pursue his dream of becoming a film editor, so he enrolled in the Venezuelan Institute ‘Taller de Arte Sonoro’, where he studied both sound design and filmmaking. Unfortunately, due to the political unrest that enveloped the country, he chose to continue his studies abroad,
He landed in San Francisco, pursuing a BFA in editing at Academy of Art University. There, Victor has worked on a variety of projects: narrative films, commercials, documentaries, music videos, and film trailers.
Victor’s skills include narrative and documentary editing using Adobe Premiere and Avid Media Composer; color correcting using Da Vinci Resolve, creating motion graphics and animated imagery using Adobe After Effects; and mixing sound and recording using Pro Tools and Logic Pro X.
Victor aspires to work in the film industry as a professional video and film editor working on feature films, TV, documentaries, or music videos.
