BOBBY ABATE | I am a queer video editor with over 20 years of experience. My recent credits include HBO’S WE’RE HERE SEASON 3 (2022), animation for SASHA VELOUR’S SMOKE & MIRRORS tour (2022), 90 DAY FIANCÈ (2022) in addition to various music video and commercial projects for director MATTHEW PLACEK. As an editor, filmmaker and artist, I am interested in documentary, reality, scripted and experimental projects, long or short form, that are inventive and progressive with lots of creative challenges. My demo reel below includes a selection of clips from professional and personal projects.
