Natalia Wong is a freelance Producer, VFX Artist and Editor based in the Los Angeles area.
Born and raised in Hong Kong, Natalia came to California in late 2007 to further her education at Orange Coast College. She found her love and passion in post-production work during the internship with Akorn Entertainment two years later, where she had the opportunity to create motion graphics with Adobe After Effects. It instantaneously reminded her of all the fun and satisfaction she had while she created an animated basketball in Adobe Flash during computer class back in primary school. The similarity between the two programmes made it easy for her to grasp After Effects, and when there is something she does not know how to do in it, she always figures it out in the end. Puzzle solving is one of her strong points.
In 2011, Natalia transferred into the Film Studies program at University of California, Berkeley, where she learnt about and met a lot of inspiring filmmakers. In her last semester, she was excused from 3 weeks of class to intern on Jesse V. Johnson’s feature, The Beautiful Ones, as an on-set assistant editor. Soon after she graduated with a B.A. in May 2013, she was hired to become the Visual Effects Producer on the film, spending long hours enhancing gunshots, muzzle flashes, bullet and blood hits. She is currently working on the final shots of the film as it nears completion.
She is also presently the Post-Production Producer of John P. Aguirre’s Buddy Bear’s Musical Adventure, overseeing everything from editing and visual effect to finishing the project.
When she is not working, Natalia loves watching movies or playing video games. She also loves travelling. So far she’s been to Maldives, Singapore, England, Alaska, Canada, Spain, Netherlands, Belgium, Egypt, Kenya, South Africa, Australia, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan and Indonesia.
