THOM CALDERÓN (Editor) – Credited on dozens of films over twenty years, Thom has worked extensively in Hollywood feature film post-production on projects ranging from comedies and action to dramas. Besides a long association with Carlos Avila, he has worked with such directors as John Singleton, Michael Apted, Taylor Hackford, Gregory Nava, and Billy Crystal. He has contributed on big budget Hollywood releases including Captain America, First Avenger and on the Twilight Saga Eclipse. As a Los Angeles native and Mexican-American working in mainstream commercial filmmaking, Thom has witnessed the great divide between ethnic portrayals in Hollywood content, and the realities of the Mexican-American community. From Thom’s experience the disconnection goes further, reaching behind the cameras as well. Within studio filmmaking, Thom has had the opportunity to hone his craft while trying to promote new perspectives, most recently editing Fox International’s Spanish/Argentine co-production, Todos Tenemos un Plan starring Viggo Mortensen. As a picture editor, he has sought the kind of projects which reference his Latino heritage and explore the Latino experience at large. Recognizing the medium’s power to affect culture, Thom has yearned to participate in projects that fill him with pride for his culture, to tell stories from his community, and to help bring that pride into focus for others.
