Q & A with a CCE Member

Kody Davidson - Alberta

How long have you been an editor for?

I've been an editor for seven years.

What genres have you worked on?

I've worked on dramas, comedies, a romcom, documentary, shorts, Vlogs, Weddings, Video Game stuff, a little bit of everything I guess.

What has been an interesting/favourite project so far?

The most interesting job I've worked on was probably this insane 4k 60fps 3D short. Keep in mind this was in 2014, so it was a pick two situation. It was part of an experiment with the University of Calgary to see if people in retirement homes would enjoy 4k 60fps in 3D with the colours turned up to 11. Needless to say, playback of the finished project was a challenge. We tried to warn the client. They were able to play it after buying two 20,000 dollar projectors, though.

What are you currently working on?

I'm currently working on a feature film called #Roxy.

Why did you decide to become an editor?

I decided to become an editor because of my love of computers, attention to detail, and my desire to create wonderful pieces of art that millions see. The fact that almost none of those people will know or care who I am in the process also appeals to me.
