Chris Plummer


Christopher Plummer went from playing punk music to cutting film, first at TVNZ editing documentaries, and then on a slate of award-winning films. They include the shorts Sure to Rise (Niki Caro), and Possum (Brad McGann); and feature films Channelling BabyIn My Father's Den, Black Sheep, No.2, Vincent Ward doco Rain of the Children, and Taika Waititi's breakout hit Boy.

One of the ways I try to work is to follow my intuition. Sometimes logic just doesn’t work in the cutting room, even though the argument about why something should work sounds great. Chris Plummer
