I am a Filmmaker and Editor who's work spans Drama, Documentary,
Commercials and Art.
I have just finished cutting the multi-screen
drama, Playtime, directed by Isaac Julien and featuring James Franco.
My past work includes the critically acclaimed Feature Film
‘Innocence’ (“…a once-in-a-lifetime piece of cinema” - BBC),
which won the Bronze Horse at Stockholm for Director Lucile Hadzihalilovic,
and more recently ‘An Organization of Dreams’, (“…stunningly
beautiful and brilliantly edited...” - Sight and
Sound), which premiered at the London Film Festival for underground
Director Ken McMullen.
In 1996 I began a long and successful
collaboration as Film Editor for Artist Isaac Julien, on a series of
multi-screen works. In 2001 the triptych ‘The Long Road to
Mazatlan’, earned the Artist a Turner Prize nomination and his 2003 film,
‘Baltimore’ took the Grand Jury Prize at the Kuntsfilm Biennale.
More recently we have collaborated on larger installations. The
2010 epic nine-screen film ‘Ten Thousand Waves’ starring the legendary
Maggie Cheung received its UK premiere at the Hayward Gallery in London and
has just been exhibited at MOMA in New York and added to their permanent
collection. (“I cannot get this work out of my mind.“ -
Glenn Lowry, MOMA). I have just finished work on Julien’s latest
seven screen opus ‘Playtime’, featuring Franco alongside Mercedes
Cabral and Maggie Cheung, which is currently touring the world. A
three minute version of the film was shown across 17 screens in Times
Square before midnight every day last December.
I have also cut a
wide range of Documentary Films. ‘Peter Green - Back for Good’
earned a RTS Best Editor nomination and the Feature doc. ‘Derek’
with Tilda Swinton was nominated for the societies' 'Best
Documentary' Award and was in competition at Sundance.
'Storyville BaadAsssss Cinema', ("It doesn't come any
better than this." - Hollywood Reporter), was an Official entry
to Toronto Film Festival. A long running association with BBC
Horizon, (21 films), culminated in ‘Horizon Parallel Universes’, which
represented Horizon to win a BAFTA for Best Documentary Strand.
