About Anuree

I started out as a trainee on My Beautiful Laundrette, cutting on film. I stayed on film, 16mm and 35mm for about 10 years. Then the brave new world of non-linear editing started up and I learned Lightworks, Avid, FCP and Adobe Premiere.
Since then I've tried to pick up new skills such as After Effects, 3D and Nuke. However I have discovered that "Node Based Architecture" is not my strong point. I'm better at story telling with context and subtext and rhythms of dialogue and action.
I love science fiction and horror and forever have several books on the go. I would love to cut more action type films but sadly that seems to be "boys" territory. I am nothing if not persistent and I'm sure I will prevail in the end.
