Marcelo Lewin

I'm a hardworking, passionate, creative, communicative, collaborative, continuous learner, who is highly organized, has an entrepreneurial mindset, and is making a midlife career transition at the age of 56 from 30+ years in the tech industry to filmmaking to fulfill his dream of working in post-production and editing.

I'm currently enrolled at the UCLA Extension Filmmaking Program focused on post-production and editing with a program completion estimated date of June 2024.

I have experience with various post tools including Adobe Premiere Pro, Adobe Audition, Adobe Photoshop, and I'm currently learning Avid Media Composer at UCLA and Davinci Resolve (for color grading).

I love technology and its intersection with business, productivity and creativity. I enjoy the constant changes it brings, which forces me to continually learn and stay up-to-date.

I've been a Developer, Technical Architect, Project Manager, Podcaster, Blogger, Videographer, Designer, VP, and Director at many companies including NBC, Toyota, Walt Disney Imagineering and J.F. Shea Co, Inc.  You can learn more about my work experience here.

I call myself an "accidental entrepreneur" having created multiple websites around my passions, which later became small startups "by accident" and later were acquired, including My Internet Desktop acquired in 2000, Pixel Heads Network acquired in 2008, Filmmaking Webinars acquired in 2012, How to Create VR acquired in 2019 and Headless Creator acquired in 2022.  You can learn more about that here.

My Interests

Editing

Editing

When I watch movies and TV shows, I often admire the editing the most. It's where the final rewrite is done.

AI & Generative AI

AI & Generative AI

I like to use AI and generative AI to help me be more creative and productive, not to replace humans.

Virtual Production

Virtual Production

The combination of real time rendering, Unreal Engine and "the volume" gives us the ability to shoot our scenes anywhere, anytime.

Post Production

Post Production

A movie begins as a bunch of wonderful ingredients that all come together in post, where the final meal is created.

Remote Production

Remote Production

Since COVID, remote team collaboration has grown in importance and understanding it is crucial.

Mobile Filmmaking

Mobile Filmmaking

I love how we all carry in our pockets a camera that only professional filmmakers could afford just 10 years ago.
