About A little about me

About

My name is Christine Tseng and I’ve been editing videos since I was a kid. My childhood included moving around a lot…from Indiana to Louisiana to Missouri to Illinois to North Carolina. I don’t remember each state as clearly as I remember the constants that stayed with me throughout my travels such as the sturdy red Nissan van that became somewhat of a home-on-wheels; and the year I learned to play the violin. During middle school, my parents finally saved up enough money to start a restaurant business in the small town of Ripley, Mississippi. I quickly adopted a southern accent and a love for computers. I remember convincing my brother and his friends to act out short films so I could learn to edit on iMovie. Making sense out of footage quickly became what I did best.

College came next and I decided to attend the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. I lost my southern accent and joined a fresh filmmaking club called Illini Film and Video. I was able to combine both the technical and creative aspects of my life and I loved it. I transferred to Columbia College Chicago to continue to grow my curiosity and earned a Bachelor of Arts in Film and Video. After college, I moved to Los Angeles and landed an amazing job with Academy Award and Emmy Award winning Scout Productions. They were a small company so everyone wore a lot of hats. I was able to learn the ins and outs of a fast paced production company by working in development, new media and post production. In 2009, I decided to launch Invent Unique so that I could continue to grow my passion for editing. I have been lucky enough to work with some of the biggest companies out there including ABC, Amazon, FremantleMedia, Discovery Studios, and Stone & Company Entertainment to name a few.

I specialize in series, pilots, sizzles, promos, presentations, company reels, web shows, and more. I have worked on everything from very detail specific projects to being handed tons of footage with very little direction. I am fast, creative, dedicated, and I love what I do!
