Hi 👋🏻 I’m Cristian.

Hi 👋🏻 I’m Cristian.

I’m a a video editor and graphic designer from Romania.

I’ve worked with online content creators and companies for over 12 years, helping bring their vision to life.

🔥 What I can do for you

🎞️
Video Editing

With people in mind

For the past few years I’ve worked with some big name YouTubers in various fields.

I love building long-term relationships with my clients. It’s the best way to get a clear view of what they need.

My long-term clients include Ali Abdaal, Leon Lush and TotalBiscuit.

The videos I’ve edited have amassed a total of over 400 million views (and still going).

I’m proficient in Premiere Pro, Final Cut Pro, After Effects and just about any other relevant software.

Copywriting

Better said, copythinking

The term “engagement” gets thrown around a lot in the world of video editing but it’s just as important when writing an ad, a description or a script for a video.

Creators like to tell stories—which is great—but passionate people tend to go hyper-specific in certain areas or focus too much on function. That’s where an editor can lend a hand in video form and a copywriter in text form.

Best case scenario—you have one guy who can do it all.

Graphic Design

Nothing is off the table

I’ve had clients from almost every area imaginable.

Sometimes they ask me to create some pretty wacky stuff and good thing they do—it pushes me to adapt and grow.

Whether you need a corporate brochure, social media graphics, a demon dog head or a bald eagle flipping the bird while waving a wrench, you can count on a “can do” from me.

(By the way, those last two were real projects.)

Be a good… human?

It’s not that weird, hear me out

I’ve clicked a lot of buttons and moved trillions of pixels around for money. The one thing that always mattered above all else has been the relationships I had with people.

Granted—money and friendship don’t mix all that well but the more we advance in technology, the bigger the need for genuine human values and contact.

Trying to be a good person is something I integrate in my professional life as much as possible.

Generalist is the word—“multidisciplinary” if you wanna be fancy.

As a self-taught jack-of-all-trades (it was initially meant as a positive, look it up), I’ve been met with the challenge—or let’s go with opportunity—to do a lot of things outside just editing and playing with pretty colors.

For 7 years I did PR and developer relations between YouTubers and gaming companies. That means I can write a decent email and be rather persuasive. Is that useful? Probably more than you think.

For a year I was a private chef in the USA. I would have to do some mental gymnastics to tie that into video editing somehow but one thing’s for sure—it’s hard work, albeit very rewarding.

For 9 years I designed printed marketing materials for some of the biggest insurance and banking companies in Romania. Thankfully the CorelDRAW days are over but those initial years were certainly formative.

The bottom line is I am what they call a generalist. And going by recent trends, it seems that’s the right place to be. But rather than tooting my own horn about things, I’ll let a couple of people I’ve worked with chime in:

“Cristian’s unwavering commitment to excellence, getting shit done even when it all piles up, relentless reliability and ability to do incredible work across a bunch of different areas (editing, animation, graphics) have been ridiculously helpful.” —Ali Abdaal CEO @ Ali Abdaal
