Casey Donlan

I graduated from UCSB with a BA in Film Studies and moved to Los Angeles to pursue my passion for storytelling through editing! I am eager to resume my journey as an unscripted story editor -- with my last credits being from a "reality dating show" I filmed with my stuffed animals at 9 years old. I've since been honing my craft through freelance film/commercial editing, and I am so grateful for the opportunity to venture into the professional unscripted editorial space with the help of the Handy Foundation!

Earl Narajos

I've always wanted to work in the industry from a young age. My passion for storytelling has led me to work as an associate producer with credits from shows on Netflix, FX, CNN, and various other networks. I love the rewarding feeling of creating something meaningful, which probably explains why I primarily work in the documentary space. When I'm not working, I'm an avid surfer, snowboarder, volleyball player, and anything that involves adrenaline.
