    Evan Sorlien


    I am a filmmaker and video production specialist based out of Los Angeles, CA, with over 10 years’ experience. Born and raised in Portland, OR, I grew up wielding a camcorder from a very young age, spending my summers in movie theaters and shooting short films with friends in the backyard. After completing the film program at Southern Oregon University, and producing several student films, I spent a couple years working the Portland film scene as a production assistant before ultimately relocating to Los Angeles.

    Most of what you see in this portfolio comes from my vast body of editing work. I have collaborated with everyone from YouTubers and filmmakers, to major brands and networks. In addition to editing, I also work as a director, producer, and occasional cinematographer. Feel free to reach out with questions regarding bookings or collaborations.

    Editors are really the glue that puts a film and/or story together, and, I must say, that Evan has been the super glue to many of my projects. Not only does he delivers on-time, but he's also a great collaborator with wonderful insights and suggestions. Evan also knows how to take notes and make them happen (or not, depending on his input). Evan is altruistic, creative, hardworking, and — most of all — a wonderful collaborator. No matter the genre or style, Evan will bring your project to life.

    Evan's creativity has always blown me away. From the first time I saw his work, I was really inspired and moved by his ability to create emotionally engaging pieces of work regardless of the the material he's editing. He's able to turn anything he edits into an entertaining story, it doesn't matter if he's working on a blockbuster movie, or a mediocre reality television show. But his craft is really only the beginning. He's an excellent communicator, thinks outside the box, and is always willing to put in the extra effort try new and exciting editorial ideas. Evan is more than just an editor, he's a great filmmaker, and knowledgeable about all aspects of production. And most importantly, he's a pleasure to work with everyday because he always has a fantastic attitude and excited to conquer the next storytelling challenge.

    Evan and met through work roughly five years ago and since that time have worked on countless productions side by side. His reliability, attention to detail, loyalty and over all talent is second to none. I'm happy to call him a colleague and a friend.

    Evan was recommended to me by a friend. I’m so grateful he said ‘yes’ to editing our comedy trailer. He grasped exactly what we were hoping to achieve and turned the footage into something unique and top quality. He had great ideas that helped tremendously too. His ability to highlight certain moments, bring in the right music and create a fun tone and flow exceeded expectations. Not only is he extremely talented, he’s awesome to work with and so very kind. I hope to get the opportunity to work with him again in the future.
