Jamie is a film editor working across drama and documentary. Over the years he has worked with a diverse range of filmmakers, helping them tell their stories in ways which make a lasting impact on the audience.
Recent credits include hit Netflix drama series Fool Me Once (Quay Street productions), and hybrid docu-drama series African Queens: Njinga (Nutopia).
Jamie has cut a wide variety of projects for theatrical release, broadcast, major streaming platforms as well as many independent shorts. His work has played at numerous festivals including Toronto and London (The Hungry, Skyward), as well as being nominated for Grierson and IDFA awards (Chomo).
He has an MA from The National Film and Television School, where he received the Avid award for his editing. He also has a BA in Philosophy and spent a number of years learning the ropes as an assistant editor. Some assistant and additional editing credits from this period include feature documentaries such as Nick Cave: 20000 Days on Earth and The Possibilities are Endless.
Jamie has been fascinated with the medium and craft of cinema from an early age when he used to wear out VHS tapes studying his favourite films. As an editor he has a keen interest in finding the unique qualities a set of rushes has to offer, which can inspire something original in the edit. He believes the best creative decisions are made when they are rooted in the rushes and born out of the storytelling.
