Tess Stuart


My involvement as an editor for fashion and political commercial advertising, documentary storytelling, independent narrative film, music videos production, and broadcast television has defined the method of both my professional workflows and my creative approach. In April 2019, my work on Congresswoman Pramila Jayapal's campaign ad "We" won a Golden Pollie Award for Best Congressional Digital Ad, and as Lead Editor and Colorist at Clatter&Din, Inc. and Corvus Eye Media, I have been directly involved in color and editorial for fashion brands such as TomboyX and Yeba Clothing, colored the award-winning Short Film "Swipe Right," dir. Corbin Sanders, and edited pilot TV episode Speed Freaks. The award-winning web series KIND TV (formerly Talk It Up TV) has been airing my work on full-length episodes since 2016, consisting of episodes "HOPE Against Human Trafficking," "Stockings for The Homeless," "A Gift of Love for Preston Scott" and "A Veteran's Huge Surprise."

What excites me is the perfect harmony of pacing, scoring, dialogue, composition, color, sound design, and message all tugging at the audience's attention and heartstrings. My heart lies in arthouse films and the Italian cinema, while my creative and technical approach to every project as versatile as it is artistic. I see the post production process as something equally technical as it is psychological & emotional in nature.
