Peter Metcalf

Editor

Peter Metcalf has four decades of experience in making it all look seamless. After 20 years in state television, he became TV3’s first Head Video Editor in Wellington. His credits include classics like Country Calendar and Kaleidoscope, plus Great War Stories, 35 short documentaries for TV3 commemorating the First World War. He also helped launch successful post-production suite Blue Bicycle Flicks.

It took me quite a long time to learn why I was doing what I was doing...if something made me laugh I’d better make sure it stayed in the film; if something made me cry I’d better make sure it stayed in the film. Editor Peter Metcalf on the key to editing
