Hello! My name is Gustavo Bernal, and I'm originally from Venezuela. Since I was a kid, I was interested in the moving images, specifically film editing; my job expanded into the creation of animation and visual effects. For a long time, I have been doing this job working with high-end companies in Venezuela, and later in NY, my new home since 2003.
When I was living in NYC I worked with famous directors such as Spike Lee, musicians like Moby, KT Tunstall, and Lilly Allen and prestigious brands like Direct TV, Nissan, and Verizon. My love for moving images and the connection still in me, that's when I start writing my blog about fill editing: Editing Modulations, which some people from the industry love, even someone from Premium Beat wrote about it.
When I was living in NYC, I started giving new appreciation to buildings and good looking interior design. I meet my wife and architect, also from Venezuela. They taught me how to love the details, the beauty, and the meaning of architecture and design work. When traveling, I explore the cities with a keen eye for architecture: Spain, Italy, England, the United Emirates, Germany, Iceland, Argentina, Chile are some of the countries I traveled with my wife; there, I saw fantastic work by renowned architects and became clear to me that taking photos was not only a way to capture my memories from the trips but also a way to express my love and appreciation of the work of art made by architects.
I went to college to learn Visual Effects, one of my passions. I knew that this would help me in video production and photography. Being able to retouch images is very important in this day and age, so developing this skill made me a very competitive professional. In 2014 and graduate and earn a degree in Liberal Arts specializing in Visual Effects.
In 2016 my life changed when our son Santiago arrived at our lives; that's when we decided to move to Austin. This was a great opportunity to reinventing myself and go back to my roots. I started working as a videographer, continuing my video editing career, and working as a photographer, capturing people, events, and architecture.
