Martine Charnow is video editor based in Los Angeles.
Driven by a young love for storytelling, she began her journey studying English and writing fiction at UC Berkeley, where a handful of her short stories were published in The Berkeley Fiction Review and The Cal Literary Arts Magazine. She wrote and directed short films, web series and music videos before finally discovering her passion for editing.
She got her post-production foot in the door transcribing for Cooking Channel shows like Unique Eats, Unique Sweets and Man, Fire, Food before landing as an assistant editor on the Netflix true crime documentary series, Making a Murderer.
Her editing credits include the YouTube Red Original series, Escape the Night, short films, branded content and her passion project: a vegan cooking channel on YouTube.
As an editor, she approaches every project with the same story-first mentality, no matter the genre, format or scope. Her experience as a writer and director gives her the perspective to look at projects with an eye for the big picture, while her technical experience as an Assistant Editor helps her stay detail-oriented throughout the process.
