Sarah Krusen is a freelance film and video editor with over 10 years of post-production experience. She is highly skilled in Avid Media Composer, Adobe Premiere Pro, and Final Cut 7. She is also proficient in DaVinci Resolve, Adobe After Effects, Photoshop and Illustrator. Sarah currently freelances for various production companies and post houses in NYC.
Sarah was born in Brooklyn, NY and grew up on film sets; her father is an indie filmmaker. New York, California, México, Virginia, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Spain, New Jersey, Bosnia-Herzegovina, and Belgium are all places Sarah has considered home at some point in her life. Each culture and landscape has shaped Sarah into who she is today.
Despite going to college for Archaeology, Sarah was inevitably pulled back into filmmaking. Sarah got her first freelance gig in 2008 with a television production company in downtown Chicago. Over the next six years, Sarah learned the ins and outs of network television: operating in-house robo-cameras, managing high-profile clients, editing multicamera interviews, and running a satellite studio. During this time she also edited three feature films, traveled the globe shooting wedding videos, and created a short film that won several awards.
In 2014, Sarah decided to take a year off for personal growth and moved to Belgium with her partner. She earned a second Bachelor’s degree in Philosophy and graduated Magna Cum Laude. It was one of the best experiences of her life.
In 2015, Sarah moved to New York where she has worked on countless broadcast and digital commercials, two documentaries, and a short film. Be sure to check out her resumé for more details.
In her free time, Sarah enjoys growing a small indoor garden, spending time with loved ones, and swimming in the ocean whenever she gets a chance. She is a member of NYWIFT, Blue Collar Post Collective, NYC Filmmakers and the FilmmakHers.
