Jabez Olssen

Editor

Dunedin-born Jabez Olssen boned up on digital effects on short-lived Pacific Renissance shows Cleopatra 2525 and Jack of all Trades. His experience with both effects and the Avid editing system scored him a place on the editing team for The Lord of the Rings, and he was BAFTA-nominated alongside Mike Horton for The Two Towers. Ollsen has gone on to command the edit for The Lovely Bones and The Hobbit trilogy.

Post (production) begins from day one of the shoot, particularly with the digital cameras. With our schedule and timetable, we had to be editing right from the beginning. Jabez Olssen, on editing The Hobbit, on website Post
