You know, your usual run-the-the-mill American Dream story. In Ana’s case, the journey also includes a stint at Video Symphony, a Saturn Award nomination, and playing a major role in moving independent production powerhouse The Asylum fully from FCP7 to Premiere Pro. Here, Ana talks with Creative COW Associate Editor Kylee Peña about workflow, VFX, and some of the secrets of Sharknado's success. (Spoiler alert: they're not comedies.)
