About William

My name is William Castro and I am based in Washington, DC. I am a freelance videographer and editor with full camera gear (Sony FS7 ii with Canon lens, wireless mic, light kits and Mac laptop editor). I have 11 years of experience, mostly working with national and international tv networks (Aljazeera, Univision and VICE News). Some of my work experience includes covering the Dallas police shootings, the 2017 Mexico City earthquake, Hurricane Irma, Hurricane Maria, Hurricane Harvey, the Las Vegas shooting, the Sutherland Springs shooting, and investigative stories. I am an operator of ENG and cinematic cameras. I have a lot of experience working with Adobe Premiere. I can perform live shots using Dejero, BGAN, Live-u, fiber and truck transmissions/operations. I can feed PKGS and elements using FTP and Media Shuttle, Aspera and more. I am a bilingual Spanish-speaker and I am comfortable with deployments around the US and other countries. I am very friendly and easy to work with in any environment and under pressure.
