I edit all my films in Vancouver, taking advantage of a great group of talented and dedicated editors.
I am somewhat in awe at the level of talent and skill of Canadian editors I've worked with. They are filmmakers and storytellers of the highest caliber.
The entire experience was amazing and the editing process was incredible. Just about to embark on my third year with the same post production team and I know I'm in the skilled hands of true filmmakers.
As a Showrunner I have only used Vancouver editors since 2012 to cut my shows and I have always been impressed by their creativity, professionalism and wisdom. They are my collaborators and protectors and have saved my ass more times than I care to admit. I work with world class talent and Vancouver Editors are a big part of that formula.
These folks are incredibly solid editors! They have cut several of my episodes for NETFLIX and SYFY … and only made me look better. They have an intuitive eye and are darn FAST. Would work with them again in a heartbeat! Amazing action cutting, and a great creative feel for drama.
The depth of talent here in B.C. when it comes to editorial is second to none. More series, U.S. shows in particular, should take greater advantage of local post production talent. To have in house Vancouver based editors just makes the process smoother and more efficient.

I’ve worked with many Editors in many cities across the US and Canada. The post production and Editorial skills in Vancouver are a match for any of them.
I’ve worked with many good editors…(T)hree of my favorites graced me with their talents last year in Vancouver. Gifted editors seeing how all the pieces fit, and more importantly, pushing me out of my comfort zone. Would do it again in a heartbeat.
All my experiences have been excellent. I usually go to LA to cut and have found the editors here in Vancouver on a par for creativity, craft and technical know-how. I would be proud to work with many of the editors here.

Animation, live action, comedy, drama, documentary, fiction... over the last thirty years, I have worked in every one of these story-telling formats, and I’ve never had to look further than my own backyard to find the top-quality editorial talent I need to make these stories come to life.
I'd rather edit in Vancouver than anywhere else in the world! No place else has the mix of talent, flexibility and drive.
I’ve worked with editors all over the world. Vancouver has some of the best.
Vancouver's post production facilities and their high level editors (were) crucial on helping getting the film I wanted ready for release. Their professionalism is only matched by their superb knowledge.
I had the chance to spend several months cutting and completing post production on my last film in Vancouver. Not only was it a beautiful city to be in, but it is full of great post production facilities and fantastic editors.
Vancouver editors have consistently brought a level of creative taste and skill to my films that has impressed myself and my partners both locally and abroad.
Each experience I’ve had with a Vancouver IATSE editor has been an absolute pleasure, top to bottom. They are exceptionally collaborative, professional, and most importantly, truly gifted storytellers. Our homegrown talent is real and deserves the spotlight.
Natural born storytellers, these top editors also have the ability to find just the right performance or special shot to take a good scene - and make it great. Once you've worked with a Vancouver based editor, you'll never question their skills again.

Vancouver's picture and sound editors have always done exceptional work. I love working with the local crews and I want to finish all my films here.
The Vancouver editors I’ve worked with have helped me craft amazing stories on an Emmy award winning show and even helping me get nominated multiple times! I couldn’t have had that success without their expertise and talents!
I love editing in Vancouver! The editors there seem to all have a sense of openness and sensitivity and care for their work that I haven’t found anywhere else.
As a director /producer working across Canada and in LA, I have thoroughly enjoyed my experience cutting with Vancouver editors. Their professionalism and craft is of the highest caliber. And I have made some very good friends.
I have spent over 30 years producing high quality movies and series for every major studio and broadcaster in America. I have filmed in many parts of America from Los Angeles to Detroit, Pittsburgh and many other major cities.
I have also been blessed to film 20 years in Vancouver and on most of my productions I have chosen to keep Post within Vancouver based on their amazing Post talents and incredible editors.
This editing core has always worked hard, gone beyond the call and accomplished all that was asked of them creatively and technically and usually better than any other crew or talent base in any other region I have worked.
The proof is in the number of awards they have been honored with on my many shows including Leo’s and the coveted Emmys.
I have worked with BC based editors for more than 20 years and have nothing but good things to say. I convinced AMC Studios to use local editors on Dirk Gently and had an amazing experience. No surprise!
I've fought hard for each US-based project I've done to be edited in Vancouver, and increasingly that is becoming the norm as the local talent continues to exceeded expectations.
Producers not only have the benefit of low dollar, and tax credits, but the long legacy of creative voices that help bring these projects to life.
Let me take the time to say that the editors I have worked with in Vancouver are absolutely equal to those I have worked with around the world — including in Los Angeles and London.
They have been innovative, collaborative, great story-tellers, fluent with VFX, and able to flex with style and substance. I have my favourites in each place, and they are all equal but different, like the best of all crews.
Our editors here are among the brightest and most creative I’ve encountered. And with the volume and diversity of projects shot here, the experience is deep.
We created Showtime's "The Chris Isaak Show" and produced it for the three seasons of its run in Vancouver. We did all our post in Vancouver and worked exclusively with Canadian film editors. We found them all to be well-trained, proficient in the latest technology, very creative and collaborative.
We were delighted with the experience and would welcome working with any of our Vancouver editors again.

I absolutely work with the best editors in the world in Vancouver BC. They are gifted storytellers that sculpt the shows I’ve directed into well paced and invigorating TV episodes that have the highest creativity and pack an emotional punch that raises the art form.
As a showrunner, I’ve made television shows in LA, Toronto and Vancouver. The one city where I truly look forward to the post-production experience is Vancouver, and that’s largely due to the city’s stellar calibre of IATSE editors.
Every one I’ve worked with has amazed me with the level of craft, array of creative approaches and tireless professionalism. If you find yourself needing to be locked in a dark, windowless room with someone for weeks on end? Do yourself a favour and make it a Vancouver IATSE editor.
I’ve worked with editors and assistants from across Canada, the US and Europe. Vancouver’s local IA891 editorial talent is amongst the best there is.
A first class operation. Among the most talented and efficient group of people as I have ever have had the privilege of working with. Not exaggerating.
The experience I had with IA891 was exceptional. I very much look forward to working with them all again.
I'd never posted in Vancouver, only L.A., so I was a little tentative. That lasted about a minute: The editors and assistant editors are super talented, cool people and great communicators.
Really enjoyed my editorial experience .. I ask everybody to claim some ownership, come with ideas, and they gave me plenty to steal. I'd do it again in a Vancouver Second, on this show or another.

My experience was one of the best in the last five years. Smart, talented and good under pressure.
As an American Director/Producer/ Writer/ Actor working in British Columbia for over 30 years, I am continually impressed by the storytelling skills and creativity of Vancouver's' editors.
