About Maedeh

I am an Iranian, award winning editor/ assistant editor with over seven years of experience in various projects such as documentaries, mockumentaries, narratives, promotionals, and music videos. I recently worked on a Shondaland/Netflix show called Inventing Anna as a post assistant where I managed processing dailies, script syncing, temporary sound design, editorial paperwork, and deliverables. Previously, I worked for over three years as a video editor for the Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts at Arizona State University where I gained significant experience in all aspects of post-production including editing, effects, color correction, sound mixing, and spotting. I also worked for three years at the Scottsdale School of Film+Theatre as a post-production lab technician, tutoring students in Avid Media Composer and other editing platforms such as Premiere Pro and After Effects. Additionally, I am an Avid Certified Professional in Media Composer and have strong creative and organizational skills along with the ability to communicate and work well both independently and in a group. I consider media the most powerful tool to create stories that challenge the imagination and accepted perceptions. Being a part of a persecuted religious minority, I was deprived of the opportunity to receive formal training and higher education in my home country of Iran. As a result, I immigrated to the United States to pursue my second degree in Film and Media Production because I believe filmmaking has the unique ability to change how we view its subjects, including many that have been consciously and unconsciously misrepresented. That’s why I am eager to work in documentary productions because I admire their desire to shed light on important, untold and unique stories. Migrating to United States by myself, made me resilient and eager to learn and grow and I want to use my skills to tell stories about the vulnerable, the marginalized and the lives deemed less important and the voices kept silent for much too long.  In addition to my work as an editor/ assistant editor, I was a panelist at the 9th Annual Human Rights Film Festival on the subject of immigration and alienation and was a participant and editor of the Dear Women short documentary. Being able to further develop my skills with your team would be an amazing opportunity. I believe I can contribute to your team because of my skill set and because I understand how creative storytelling can bring compassionate people together and promote the community.
