Luke Bechtel (he/him) is a Chicago-based filmmaker whose professional emphasis lies in post production. Primarily working in various capacities as a video editor, he has also lent a hand as a motion graphics designer, animator, colorist, visual effects artist, and DIT/loader.


With a particular passion for experimental film, Luke is constantly striving to implement unconventional techniques both in the camera and in the edit, which tends to inform the look and feel of much of his own projects. His short films, documentaries,  and music videos have screened in festivals on both coasts as well as across his native Midwest.

A graduate of the Bachelor of Fine Arts program at DePaul University,  he has had the opportunity to work on numerous narrative, documentary, music video, and animation projects, forming a detail-obsessed approach toward filmmaking that emphasizes radical creativity and technical proficiency in equal measure.
