Interview: Nona Khodai (she worked on the FX for the Marvel series you know …)

Nona Khodai is an LA-based picture editor, who was recently double Emmy-nominated for her work on Marvel’s WandaVision (Disney+). Other editing credits include The Boys (Prime Video), Revolution (NBC), Colony (USA Network), The Strain (FX), and Amazing Stories (Apple TV). Follow her on Twitter and Instagram.

She uses Continuum and Sapphire plugins inside her Avid workflow.


Congrats on your Emmy nominations (Outstanding Single-Camera Picture Editing For A Limited Or Anthology Series Or Movie – 2021) for WandaVision! How did it feel to be nominated not once but twice for your work on the wildly popular limited series?

It felt amazing to be nominated. Never did I ever think this could happen. I’ve never been nominated for anything ever, so it was a happy surprise.   

Where are you from and how did you get your start in the industry?

I was born and raised in Southern California and grew up in Orange County up until going to film school in LA for undergrad. I got my start in the industry in a very lucky way. I had a friend email me about a possible temporary assistant editing gig during my winter holiday break of my last semester of undergrad. A friend of his needed to go home for the holidays and needed someone to cover him. So since I lived in LA, I said I’d do it knowing Avid a bit from learning the program at school.

I got a call to come in that next Monday and I was off to the races. I ended up staying longer than those two weeks but then had to leave so that I could finish school. I asked if I could call them when I graduated and they said, absolutely. So I called them in May when I graduated and they had no spots available but then two weeks later they told me, come back temporarily. I ended up working there for almost two years, got my union days, and then a friend helped me find a job on a union film. After that, I just kept meeting new people and kept working, and I haven’t stopped.  

What are your go-to Boris FX plugins and which effect/features do you rely on most?

I use Continuum and Sapphire mainly. I love Continuum’s Motion Blur and Blur effects, and I use the Sapphire’s Shake tool on literally every show I work on. I also tend to use Continuum’s Film Damage and Cross Glitch a lot when temping fast-paced cuts or cuts that need to be jarring. It’s good for helping create ideas that we can then evolve when we hand over to the VFX department.
