BIOGRAPHY

 

Roderick has worked as an award-winning Picture Editor and Sound Editor for over 20 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, Karen Troubetzkoy, Shawn Piller and Naren Shankar.

 

Some of Rod’s past credits include picture editing Amazon Prime's sci-fi series THE EXPANSE. He also worked on season 4 of PRIVATE EYES and the final two seasons of KILLJOYS. 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.
