Who I Am

My name is Shelby Meinzer and I am an independent filmmaker and professional editor and DIT currently working in the Los Angeles area. I have over 18 years of experience working in film and television. I created Rogue Scarlet as a way to share news, information, knowledge, tips, tricks and workflows for editors and cinematographers. Most of what you will see is based around the RED camera system since that is my specialty but I will also cover plenty of other information as well. In addition to this site I offer on site training and consulting as well as production and post production services.

Be my friend!
