"I focus on a practical, hands-on teaching approach in my classroom. Allowing the students to learn and explore the creative and foundational skills required to be successful in post-production."


Andrea Klipp (BA, Santa Clara University, 1992) has been involved in the motion picture industry for nearly 30 years. As a principal at Big Red Barn Media Group, she oversaw post-production on hundreds of hours of documentary and factual television, along with corporate and government work.

Her work, principally as an editor and post supervisor, saw her deliver award-winning programming to broadcasters in North America and beyond. She also has practical experience as an on-set visual effects compositor, director, producer and business owner.

Klipp started teaching at Capilano University in 2011, becoming a full-time instructor the following year. She continues to enjoy sharing the knowledge she has gained, helping launch the next generation of post-production professionals.

After a long career as an editor, post facility manager and business owner, I am happy to share my experience with the next generation of content creators. I value the hands-on practical nature of the School of Motion Picture Arts program and incorporate that type of learning in my classroom.

I enjoy working closely with students, mentoring them through the editing process. I spent many years in various roles of post-production and enjoy sharing those experiences with students.
