Born on July 1998, and hailing from Xi’an, China, Clark Zijun Zhu is an aspiring video editor whose goal is pursuing a career in the movie trailer industry. Clark is currently studying at Loyola Marymount University, major in Film Production.
During his high school sophomore year, Clark decided to start his own YouTube/Vimeo channel and uploaded fan-made video mashups and tv spots of the movies he loves. Each December since 2015, Clark will upload a trailer mashup titled "Moving Pictures: Movie Trailers Mashup" that mixes over 250 movies into an 8-minute montage. The video series is warmly received on the Internet. Online publications such as TIME, CNN, Entertainment Weekly, Yahoo Movies, Slash Film, The Playlist, Film School Rejects, and many others, had featured Clark’s mashup on their sites. The series scored over 12 million cumulative views from Internet worldwide.
The mashups led Clark to his first internship at Battlestar Studio, a Chinese movie trailer house located in Beijing, China. During the two months of stay, Clark worked as a copywriter and assistant editor on five different trailer campaigns, including Jackie Chan’s sci-fi blockbuster “Bleeding Steel”, and Aaron Kwok’s crime thriller “Peace Breaker”.
As Clark returns to Loyola Marymount University for education, he plans to intern at trailer houses in LA area and hopes to work as a trailer editor after graduation.
