Hello! I am Karen Barboza.
Born and raised in San Diego, CA.
I've edited a variety of projects like short films, feature films, short documentaries, and other video content like podcasts and reels.
I enjoy thrillers, dramas, and anime. Though, westerns have caught my eye lately.
My favorite things include analog horror, Pikmin, and lemonade.

Emphasis in Post-Production
During my time in college, I took part in short films, documentaries, and feature films. My roles for these projects were mainly editor, colorist, and/or DIT. Along with these films, I had the opportunity to network, go to the 2023 Sundance Film Festival, and edit a senior thesis film.
I collaborated and assisted in editing cuts for client projects. I edited multi-cam podcasts, social media reels, a donation advertisement, highlight videos, and a promotional video. I edited with Davinci Resolve 17 on PC. I also edited several audio podcasts using Ableton on PC.
High Tech High International
High School Diploma
At this project-based school, I had a hands-on experience on a variety of projects. These include laser-cutting/etching, 3D modeling and graphic design with photoshop/illustrator, and videos edited with Photoshop and Final Cut Pro
I watched several film submissions for the 2019 San Diego Latino Film Festival and measured how interesting it would be for high school student audiences. I also made a short documentary series about the Little Saigon Stories event in City Heights, San Diego. With 2 other interns, we prepared interview questions, shot b-roll, and conducted interviews. I edited "Little Saigon Stories: What Next" with Adobe Premiere Pro.
I spent my time with the audio team to which I assisted in making backgrounds from sound libraries, participated in foley sessions, and record foley through ProTools. The projects I worked on include feature films and season four of The Chosen series. As an intern, I also performed receptionist duties, and miscellaneous tasks.
