Hailing from New Zealand, Scott jumped across the Tasman in 2000 and quickly fell in love with the art of editing. With over 20 years’ experience as an editor he has had a varied career that covers drama, documentary and commercial; for the big screen and small.
The projects he has been a part of have been recognised at the AACTA awards, Directors Guild of America Awards, Australian Directors Guild Awards, Logies, One Show Entertainment Awards, D&AD awards, ATOM awards, and Tropfest. But it is the recognition of the Australian Screen Editors Guild that is most meaningful to him with his editing peers having nominated him for best editing in a Feature Drama, Feature Documentary, Factual Entertainment, Comedy, Short Drama, Commercial, and Music Video. This is a testament to his versatility and creativity as an editor.
Scott is deeply involved with the editing community. He runs a monthly meet up for post production professionals, an editing podcast (Final_Final_Locked), and an editing competition called Edit Royale that showcases the best emerging editors in front of a live audience. It is fair to say that Scott lives and breathes editing, a craft he is deeply passionate about.
