Hello. I’m Michael Arginsky, freelance Video Editor living in Beacon, NY.
I have been editing since 1998 and have extensive experience in corporate, advertising, music video, documentary, and narrative media. My passion lies in emotionally driven short-form storytelling.
As a freelancer I’ve been fortunate to work with dozens of creative teams and professionals. Each project allows me the opportunity to develop my skills and style, while sharpening my client communication to understand project ambitions and requirements.
I enjoy the collaboration between Director and Editor, and find that I’m at my best when there’s a trajectory toward a common goal and freedom to roam within that structure.
I work in Adobe’s Creative Cloud, with my proficiency in Premiere. I have working experience creating motion graphics with After Effects and Photoshop, as well as experience finishing spots (sound mixing, and color correction). I am regularly asked to configure and output videos with various digital formats, encoding specs, and standards for web and mobile access.
Recently, I have edited media for Marvel, MFS Investment Management, Avaaz, Pfizer, The Battery Conservancy, Content Machine, Peach, Beacon Independent Film Festival, and artists Melissa McGill, Margot Kingon, Susan Osberg, and Dan Dowd.
