Ramsey Mellette is an award-winning Director & Editor based in the Los Angeles area and available for jobs worldwide.
Ramsey began his career in filmmaking when he directed a small yet ambitious stop-motion adventure called "Ramsey Makes His Escape!" on a shoestring budget of $741 dollars. To his surprise and delight, this little Super 8 film was accepted into the Aspen Shortsfest where it charmed audiences and critics alike. On the cold and cobblestone streets of Aspen, he bonded with a group of filmmakers and artists who inspired him to apply to USC School of Cinematic Arts.
Ramsey earned a Masters' in Film Production from USC and his thesis film "ROCK ON" garnered awards and accolades on the festival circuit. From there, he directed an in-house comedy for Creative Artists Agency which led to many future directing and editing gigs.
Among Ramsey's most notable works are "MY LONG DISTANCE RELATIONSHIP," a college comedy for MTV, "THE CRAFT STORE," a workplace comedy set in the zany world of Arts & Crafts, "YOU USED TO BE CUTE," a short comedy starring Jonathan Lipnicki of the famous movie Jerry Maguire, and most recently Ramsey has begun work in the commercial realm; co-creating, directing, and editing a spot for Silicon Valley Start-up company, TIP'DOFF.
Ramsey also mixes sound for television, is an avid photographer, and eats every other meal at Chipotle.
Ramsey edits most of the projects that he directs, but also works independently as an Editor for various clients.
His passion for editing began when he enrolled in an Avid Boot Camp, just prior to enrolling in Film School where he then edited numerous films and projects. At USC, he also served as Post Production Coordinator for the Marcia Lucas Post Production Facility. In the TV realm, Ramsey has worked in various capacities as an Assistant Editor on multiple shows.
He is proficient in Avid, Final Cut Pro 7, and Adobe Premiere Creative Cloud. When Ramsey edits any project, he commits so strongly that he becomes part robot.
