Beth Davis - Post Production

Storytelling is my Jam``

I grew up in Mt. Holly, NC back when it still had family farms. I used to be that kid who knew if you skipped a page (or changed a word) in my bedtime stories. I loved to read and there was literally nothing else I wanted to do. When our parents kicked us out of the house to play, I took my books with me and went to the shade tree.

I read books in the bathtub, with a flashlight under covers, anywhere I could. Even attempted to read at dinner, but my Dad would have none of it. This love of a well-told story is what appeals to me about video editing and it’s why I love this industry so much.

It's What I Do

99%
editing

I can spin a tale that makes your buyer the HERO of the story. It keeps your viewers watching.

90%
MOTION GRAPHICS

Sometimes a video needs to moving parts to illustrate the point. I create custom motion graphics for videos to enhance interest.

93%
SCRIPT WRITING

Script writing is key to flesh out a good concept. Writing scripts for actors or voice over talent is very different than writing scripts for brochures. I make sure that your idea is written to be compelling and understood without being too stuffy and formal.

ON SET PROMOTION

With most projects, I come along on set so that I can see everything we're filming and offer any input on segments that I feel might be missing something when I'm editing later. I also enjoy asking a few additional questions during interviews to bridge the story.

Beth, you need to put some poop here about yourself. Be vulnerable.

Funny You Should Ask

BACKGROUND

My original college major was Architecture because I wanted to be creative, and was told I couldn’t make a living with art. After realizing it really wasn’t what I thought it was, I changed to Business. But it wasn’t until I discovered editing that I realize where I was supposed to be.

THE INSPIRATION

The creative process for me can sometimes start at the shoot or before while I’m writing a script, but sometimes it doesn’t hit me until I’m sitting in the editing bay.

Little Known Facts
There’s only one book that I have ever thought was better than the movie – Stir of Echoes.
I can make my own bread, face cream, clothing, buttermilk, bug spray, etc.
I have seen Pulp Fiction about 200 times.
Favorite Movie Quotes

“If you don’t have anything nice to say, come sit by me.” – Steele Magnolias
“If I can’t gut out this house and make it my own, I will go insane and I will take you with me.” – Beetlejuice

 

A LOVE OF BOOKS

The book that really started my true passion for reading was James and the Giant Peach. But some of my favorites are Cold Mountain by Charles Frazier, Gone With the Wind by Margaret Mitchell and I have to say that Jodi Picoult’s books really open my eyes almost every time I read them.

CHARITY WORK

There are a few things that I contribute my time and talents for. One is, sewing bereavement gowns for infants who are still born or die early using donated wedding dresses. The logic is that that dress was worn on a day full of love all around, what better fabric to use to put a loved infant to rest in?
