RODERICK DEOGRADES

Editor

BIOGRAPHY

 

Roderick has worked as an award-winning Picture Editor and Sound Editor for over 25 years. His extensive knowledge of both sides of the post equation has proven invaluable. He has become one of the industry’s most sought-after collaborators and has worked with many acclaimed filmmakers including Jeremy Podeswa, Michael McGowan, Breck Eisner, Donald De Line, Shawn Piller and Naren Shankar.

 

Some of Rod’s past credits include picture editing Amazon Prime's sci-fi series THE EXPANSE for the past four seasons (seasons 3-6), CHAPELWAITE and BILLY THE KID for EPIX. His feature film work includes Michael McGowan’s ONE WEEK and STILL MINE, for which he won the Canadian Cinema Editors Award for Best Editing in a Feature Film. 

 

His documentary work includes Michael McNamara's 100 FILMS & A FUNERAL, a film chronicling the rise and fall of UK's PolyGram Films – for which he received the Gemini for Best Picture Editing in a Documentary Program. He also edited Liz Marshall’s critically acclaimed THE GHOSTS IN OUR MACHINE and Ray Klonsky & Marc Lamy’s DAVID & ME, a documentary about David McCallum who was wrongfully convicted of murder at the age of 16 at the height of New York City’s crime epidemic in the mid-80s. The documentary was instrumental in McCallum’s eventual release in 2014.

 

Rod also co-directed FOX TALES for PBS Nature and CBC and produced MIDIAN FARM, both of which he also edited. He recently won the 2018 Directors Guild of Canada Award for editing the documentary SILAS.

 

His award-winning sound work includes Istvan Szabo's SUNSHINE, Menno Meyjes' MAX, and Paul Gross' PASSCHENDAELLE – all of which received the Genie for Best Sound Editing. 

 

Recently, Rod received a 2022 Canadian Cinema Editors Awards Nomination for Best Editing in Animation for his work on CHARLOTTE, an animated feature on the life of the German-Jewish artist Charlotte Salomon.

Some of Rod's upcoming work includes the mini-series BONES OF CROWS, about the generational trauma caused by Canada's Indian Residential Schools and HIGH SCHOOL for PLAN B, a series based on Tegan and Sara's memoirs of growing up in the mid-90s in Calgary, Alberta.
