About

Being a video editor is not just a job. It's so much more. Editing is a complex task, combining dozens of creative decisions, in order to tell a story. Decisions such as what to keep, what to cut. Choosing a suitable structure, setting the right pace, mood and accompanying pictures, sounds & music. It’s about a perfect combination of all these things in order to bring the pictures alive and hide the editing. Editing is an art. An invisible art.

I have always been interested in moving pictures, but it was not until 2009 when I finally started discovering the beauty of making them. It was back then when I tried editing for the first time. My debut as a video producer came in 2012, following a decision to pursue a career in video production. For me, video editing is my favourite part of the production process so I hope it comes as no surprise that my motto is 'When Words Are Not Enough.'

One of the biggest struggles is to get a chance to prove yourself in a real production. So I decided to come up with my own projects in an area I know very well – Motorsport – and in 2014 I had got my first chance to become a video editor for a big project. It was a YouTube-based video magazine "The F1 Magazine" for Grand Prix Times, one of the leading British Formula 1 websites. Then, a couple of months later, I took an exciting opportunity to become a producer of Virtual GP to start a completely new and unique project combining Motorsport and gaming.

Since my beginnings, I've always focused on a high-quality production, a showcase of creative storytelling and overcoming challenges of new and exciting projects. In my spare time, I like to learn about new things and technologies. And when I want to relax, there is nothing better for me than watching Motorsport, films or travel around the world.

Projects

My first ever project was a YouTube show called MAGAZÍN SVĚTOVÉ SÉRIE RENAULT. This video magazine, which was dedicated to the World Series by Renault series, was launched back in 2012. Our goal was to bring Czech fans closer to this exciting racing series by offering behind the scenes videos and exploring lesser-known parts of the sport. The most notable moment came with an exclusive interview with Igor Salaquarda, a team manager of the Czech team, I.S.R. Racing, discussing their fantastic Formula Renault 3.5 2012 campaign with Briton Sam Bird behind the wheel.

The first international project I worked on was THE F1 MAGAZINE, produced for The F1 Times website (now Motorsport Week), one of the leading British websites dedicated to Formula 1. A bi-weekly YouTube magazine was focused on news, results and analysis as well as interesting topics from the world of F1 - all that in a 15-minute show, presented in English, available worldwide. The production team also visited the Ayrton Senna and Roland Ratzenberger Tribute 2014 event in Imola to film a special tribute, in honour of the 20th anniversary of their deaths.
