Natan De Decker

Hi, I'm Natan, a Film Editor from Brussels. Graduated from Manhattan Edit Workshop's Six Week Intensive course. Degrees in Film Editing and in Digital Project Management. Skilled on most non-linear editing softwares, with a strong knowledge of digital video technology.

I grew up watching movies, fascinated by storytellers like Spielberg, Lucas, and Kubrick who understand perfectly film editing. While the tools needed to be learned in the classroom, I spent my free time putting shots together, telling stories, and giving it clarity.

I've been working in post-production and perfecting my craft since 2015. I learned the art of motion design, 3D animation, and compositing on the job. I also worked on feature films; from online editing, color grading, and titles to asset management and final exporting.

Feeling that it was time to look for new challenges, and go back to my first love; films, I established myself as a Freelance Film Editor. I wish to dedicate my creative and technical skills to support stories of filmmakers from around the globe.


I love dedicating my experience, expertise and touch to great films or videos. Here's an overview of a few projects I was involved with. Please keep in mind that although I'd like to showcase everything I do, most of the videos I worked on are protected by copyrights. Passwords are available upon request and more projects are featured on my Adobe Portfolio.


Film Editing

Non-linear editing systems are my every-day tools to tell great stories, regardless of the software package. I love using Adobe Premiere Pro to cut images and sounds together, but I also worked on Avid Media Composer and Final Cut Pro in the past.


After Effects has been a home for many years now. I had to dive into compositing during film school and it has been, since then, more than a hobby. I did my share of Motion Design, and I always welcome new challenges in digital image manipulation.

Color Grading

The now obligatory step between online editing and finishing. My technical background lead me to oversee the final steps in post-production on two documentary features, plus a bunch of short narratives, all the way to titling and delivering.

Raiders of the Lost Ark
On Introducing the Hero: Raiders of the Lost Ark
Lately, I got my hands on The Complete Making of Indiana Jones by J.W. Rinzler, so naturally, I wanted to rewatch Raiders of the Lost Ark. It got me thinking that it's probably the best-edited film I've seen, period. And I'm not talking about the desert chase sequence.

The Matrix
On Cutting Action: The Matrix
The film that set the bar higher for both science-fiction and action on the eve of the second millennium. It inspired a new generation of filmmakers and changed the landscape of special effects. Often imitated, never equaled. Buckle up, Dorothy.

Blade Runner 2049
On Designing Emotions: Blade Runner 2049
The sequel to the best science-fiction film of all time lives up to its predecessor. I might even add that it's—in my opinion—the greatest film of the decade. It is a film that talks about us, humans, and our ability to create and respond to works of art.
