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 and wins at SUNDANCE and an EMMY.
Gideon has instinctively delivered highly original cinematic narratives known for their distinct dynamic empathy and often witty and humane style. He is drawn to both complex and soulful characters and narratives; many of which express emotion through an abundance of archive.
Although he prefers working with fiction and documentary feature film, he also enjoys cutting commercials, film-trailers and collaboration with artists, 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 very quickly with great humor, imagination, invention and originality.
