LOS ANGELES, USA // Gen Ip is an award-winning trailer editor whose career began entirely by accident.

The year was 2010. Bored with college and hungry for a challenge, Gen decided to teach herself video editing by splicing together every movie from that year into a supercut, which she shared on YouTube just for fun. To her astonishment, Filmography 2010 went viral and was seen by millions – including a few eagle-eyed trailer producers who were crazy enough to offer her an editing job right out of college. With no other notable skills, she left her home in Vancouver to chase an unexpected path in Hollywood.

Now, over 10 years later, she has cut trailers for many dream campaigns including Game of Thrones, Fantastic Beasts, The Crown, Joy, Euphoria, Malcolm & Marie, and Tenet. While she's grateful for the awards she's won, the real award for her has always been the kind and talented friends she's made along the way.

Gen continues to thrive in her career with the loving support of her parents, who almost never watch movies, but always proclaim her work as β€œthe best trailers they've ever seen.”
