DAOUD SARHANDI WILLIAMS
I am an award-winning FILMMAKER with a wealth of additional creative experience. I grew up in Bristol, studied in London, and subsequently have worked all over the world.
I am currently working on a book about Ukraine. This visual/literary book, called Ukraine at War: Street Art, Posters + Poetry, is almost complete. I anticipate that it will be out in March 2023. More here.
Bosnian War Posters was published by Interlink Books in May 2022. It is distributed by Simon & Schuster. More here.
ABC of Film & Video Editing will be out in 2023, published by Interlink Books. It is currently in the final stages of being edited. More here.
Film Step by Step: Methodology of Self-Awareness, by Carolina Rivas, was published in Barcelona in 2020. I edited and redesigned this Spanish-language cinema book, which was originally published in Mexico in 2010.
I have written for a variety of print and online publications, including Eye magazine, London, and Proceso, Mexico City.
I have been editing and sound-designing films since the 1980s—first on celluloid and digitally since the mid-1990s. Today I mainly work in Adobe Premiere Pro and Adobe Audition, but I also have working knowledge of Avid, Final Cut Pro, Lightworks and Protools.

I started teaching film editing in Mexico in 2006. After moving to Barcelona in 2012, I became the head of film editing at La Casa del Cine. I stayed in this position until 2021. I now give classes at ECCIT, in Lerida. I give private individual classes if asked, and teach all Videovalores courses. I teach in Spanish and English.
