Profile image for David Coulson

David Coulson

Editor

David Coulson trained to be a director, but instead discovered a passion for editing. He joined TV One and worked on a range of programmes including Mortimer's Patch, before going freelance in the early 80s. Since then he has won awards for his work in feature films and commercials, and established an ongoing working relationship with Niki Caro, editing all her features from Whale Rider onwards.

Every day I was going to work and looking at performances by an extraordinary collection of high performing international movie actors. That was like, do you have the right stuff? Can you go from a New Zealand environment to something of this scale and pull it off? David Coulson on editing Niki Caro's North Country
