THE LONG VERSION

Deanna Hong is an Emmy award-winning visual storyteller based in Los Angeles.

She is best known for her work as the Team Videographer for UCLA Gymnastics. Her reputation as a producer of high-quality, cinematic gymnastics video content has placed her at the forefront of gymnastics storytelling (ranging from viral floor routines, to short docs with Olympic champions, to honoring survivors of sexual abuse). In 2016 she earned an Emmy as part of the NBC Olympics team that produced the digital gymnastics recap show Daily Dismount during the Rio Olympics.

In 2018, she joined Fox Sports for their coverage of the FIFA World Cup and was the only female on a team of 30 Premiere editors. In 2019, she returned to Fox as an editor for the FIFA Women’s World Cup. She is also a Post Story Producer in the Original Content department at NFL Network.

Beyond her work in sports, she specializes in behind-the-scenes videography and has worked with notable clients such as Brittany Snow, Pentatonix, Superfruit, Travis Wall, and Citizen Queen.

Deanna is most passionate about telling the stories of empowered women who leave a positive impact on our world. She aims to increase representation and amplify the voices of marginalized groups such as people of color, the LGBTQ+ community, and women in male-dominated industries.
