TAL.ANDERSON::

FILM & VIDEO EDITOR

Tal Anderson grew up in Florida, but is now an L.A.-based actor (see acting portfolio) and filmmaker, most known for her roles as Sid in the Netflix series Atypical, and as Gia in the Prime Video series, As We See It.   She is a working freelance film editor and an AVID Media Composer Certified User, but works mainly in Adobe Premiere Pro.  She is additionally experienced in the use of DaVinci Resolve, and Final Cut systems. 

 

Ms. Anderson has been a storyteller since childhood, where she recorded and made her own films using a hand-held FLIP video camera.  Her love of movies and telling stories, inspired her to receive her B.S. in Film from Full Sail University before relocating to Los Angeles to pursue her career in the entertainment industry. In addition to acting, she produces, writes, and directs independent projects, but her focus and passion in filmmaking is in all aspects of post-production including video and audio editing.

 

She is currently working on post-production tasks for a feature film produced by Suzanne DeLaurentiis Productions, and recently completed a full edit of Man Haunt, an award-winning short film directed by Jeff Rose, a 2-season, comedy series titled The Hope and the Hopeless, and her own 2-season web series titled Wild, Wild, West Hollywood, which can be viewed as an original series on Rizzle.  Tal's recent documentary, Serendipity and Me, produced during the 2020 Covid lockdown, has been screened at 22 film festivals worldwide, and was nominated for several awards.
