My name is Sarynelli Valerin. I am 26 years old and live in Huntington Beach, CA. As far back as I can remember, I've seen the world in a different way. I suppose I've always been looking at the world through a lens before I even knew what a lens was. When I was 10 years old, I realized filmmaking would be the most natural medium through which I could express myself.
After earning my B.A. in business administration at the Latin University of Costa Rica (my second home), I came back to the U.S. at the age of 21 to finally pursue my dream of becoming a filmmaker. I started from the ground up, going to community college and studying film, interning at various film festivals, doing countless jobs for free, until finally I was able to gain a steady list of clients and quit my day job to become a freelance videographer.
I've been lucky enough to work on a broad range of projects and as a result, my skills are also on a broad range of the filmmaking spectrum. I can direct, light, shoot, edit, do treatments -- a jack of all trades as it were. I love working on all different kinds of projects: documentary, corporate, promotional, behind-the-scenes, etc. My work has been featured on websites like Long Beach Post and CBS Sports. Some of my clients include:
- Orange Coast College
- Grupo Gallegos
My goal is to continue to improve my style and gain experience in working with like-minded individuals who share the same common goal: to make awesome visual representations and inspire.
