OR WHO HE IS...

Gideon draws his film editing from past life experiences in the art, photographic and music worlds.

Since leaving the National Film & Television School, with a rare double distinction, Gideon’s work has broadcast across the world both on prime international television networks (BBC, HBO, ESPN, SHOWTIME, PBS, ABC) and on theatrical release. Most of these films have received prestigious international awards, including entry onto the 2016 Oscar shortlist.

​Gideon has instinctively delivered highly original and cinematic narratives known for their distinct and dynamic empathy and often witty and humane style.

​Although he prefers working with fiction and documentary feature film, he also enjoys cutting commercials and film- trailers, allowing him to experiment and push the editing medium with sound, image and music.

​He is hugely committed to each project, with a keen interest to be involved in every step that a producer would allow; embracing early script proofing, supervising grading, providing superb temp music, detailed sound design and working closely with composers and the sound designer through to the dub.

​Gideon has also enjoyed working as a consultant on a number of films, providing detailed notes, edits, restructuring and reinvention of short and feature length films.

​He works with great humor, very quickly, imaginatively and 'out of the box'.
