I know it's been a minute since you heard for me. Just in case you've forgotten, my names is 'biyi Toluwalase, I'm a film blogger at www.biyitolu.com.ng and also a film and lifestyle YouTuber at www.youtube.com/c/biyitoluwalase.
So, I'm very sure not a lot of you awesome folks are aware that I'm a film editor - not your fault in any way you don't know, I guess I just haven't really pushed that out there about myself enough. So, to fix that, I decided to cut an editing reel.
Well, to create awareness about my being a movie editor is one of the major reasons I cut this editing demo reel. However, I also wanted to give shine to the storyteller in me. So, for the aforementioned reason, rather than lift the best scenes from these movies I've been privileged to work on as an editor and piece them together incoherently, I decided to structure this thematically because, for me, it's also about storytelling. Consequently, the final editing reel I came up with, some of you might consider not a traditional editing reel.
I chose to tell a story of pain, resistance and joy. Why pain, resistance and joy? Well, because, in life, I've been knocked down, (pain), I've pushed back( resistance) and I've been victorious (joy). This is a cycle of life that many of is know all to well, and I hope we can relate to it in this demo reel. Enjoy.
It all ends in joy.
Live fully. Love Truly. Laugh Heartily.
