I work with clients to create proposals and outlines for projects in order to establish strong story foundations from the beginning.
With projects in progress, I help clients take inventory and assess their media assets in order to come up with a plan to make the most of what they have, and create new media needed to complete the project. I map the narrative structure of the project in order to identify story holes and offer solutions for successful completion of the project.
I view rough cuts and fine cuts for clients in order to troubleshoot issues with narrative structure, offer editorial solutions and suggestions for improvement, including video, audio, music, graphics, interview content suggestions, and time reduction.
Sometimes we hate to admit it but Tracy and I have known each other for over 20 years. My respect for her unique approach to getting the story and telling it has been constant and unwavering throughout those years. Tracy’s passion for the craft and life in general is unparalleled. Affinity loves her!

Being a great Reality Editor takes the genius of a sculptor, the vision of a prophet, and the patience of a saint. Tracy has these qualities in abundance, and is a true master of her craft. To find a better storyteller, collaborator, and friend would be a daunting task.

I have known and worked with Tracy Bacenas for over 15 year. I know her to be a natural leader, excellent producer and a master at the art of visual storytelling.
-Roderick Donahue, President Archer Luna Productions
Tracy brought creativity, hard work, and excellent judgment to our production. Getting 25 one-hour shows in two languages to air in under six months was a near to-impossible task – but Tracy did it. She writes. She directs. She produces. And most important of all: she leads by example. Tracy quite literally saved our ass. But that’s another story…
