Beatriz Elía Marcos – Editor / Motion Graphic Designer
Who is Beatriz Elía Marcos?
My mother says I’m a “cabra loca” (a little bit crazy) but the truth is I just have a lot of energy, I tend to smile a lot and I’m quite creative (this might be the part my mother mistakes with crazyness).
Professionally, I have over 10 years experience working in audiovisual, mostly in post-production. I have done all kinds of video content: documentaries, advertising, news, corporate, educational.
How did your career path develop?
I studied and started my career in Madrid, from doing some shorts with friends (with no money but a ton of eagerness) to working for some of the most important Spanish audiovisual companies.
I then moved to France where a new challenge began: learning the language and not gaining 100 pounds with all those delicious croissants. Seven years and many videos edited later, I decided to cross the English Channel and start a new adventure in London.
What do you consider your greatest achievement/s so far?
I’m quite proud of being able to move and start over again, making new friends, meeting new colleagues, overcoming new challenges. I have learnt so much from each company I’ve worked for.
And I’m more than happy when people want to work with me again, not just for professional reasons but also on a personal level. It’s such a rewarding feeling when you spend at least 8-10 hours a day working with someone and they are glad to work with you again!
Any projects you are most proud of and why?
A feature documentary about the French handball team during the World Championship in 2015.
It was great to be immersed in the competition, working along with a producer for the whole time, managing short deadlines, dealing with unforeseen circumstances and hoping for a happy ending for the project. It was very stressful and it entailed a lot of hard work but it was a great experience.
