Cutting documentary, current affairs and non-fiction professionally since 2003. As a director/editor, I tend to edit my own material, but I've worked exclusively as an editor at GlobalTV's 16x9, the most recent CSA winner for Best News or Info Series (2016) - essentially, one of Canada's leading investigative journalism shows.
I've cut 50+ feature stories for Global: a mix of investigative, medical, crime, arts, human interest, legal and government stories, running between 15 minutes and an hour. It's fast-paced and a helluva rush some days, and it’s made me a much better filmmaker and storyteller. First cut – best cut.
Great crew & producers there, everyone on staff is expected to be a strong journalist - including the editors. The editor's gig is story and montage. We work with producers for days to shape narrative, then craft the openers and moments to hook viewers. Reel covers the span of the show, full stories below.
On a different tack - I've also cut reams of 30 second commercial spots. If you're interested in hyperframe editing, may be of interest.
If you want a laugh: years ago, I was a one-man promo machine at BookTV, writing and editing 30 second spots by the bushel. Today, find these are great fun: Hitchcock, Batman, erotic montages, idiosyncratic weirdness. A couple of them probably shouldn't have run on national TV, but it makes me love them more.
