About Kelly Morris
Editing is my passion, and I believe in order to get the best possible film, you need a clear and compelling narrative that is well paced and artfully crafted both in picture and sound.
My series credits include Lead Editor for Discovery's Highway Thru Hell and Jetstream (Discovery), and Polar Bear Town and Saw Dogs (OLN). Documentaries include Facing Suge Knight (National Geographic), Edna's Bloodline (SVT/TVO), A Wolf Called Storm (BBC's Natural World), For the Love of Elephants (CBC Nature of Things) and feature doc The Search for Freedom (Universal Pictures). My scripted work includes award winning short film The Meeting (Opiate Pictures), feature Circle of Pain (Lionsgate) and comedy series Royal Canadian Air Farce (CBC).
My first editing experience was on a documentary I filmed in war torn El Salvador, while working on my B.A. at Simon Fraser University, about the student democracy movement. My international film debut was at the 1999 Sundance Film Festival with a nomination for the Grand Jury Prize in Documentary, and later that year I joined the team at CBC's premier investigative journalism series, The Fifth Estate.
I have worked as a freelance editor in Toronto, where my clients included the CBC's Documentary Unit and Discovery Canada's Exploration Production. I currently work in my hometown of Vancouver.
I am also extremely proud to have served as President of the Canadian Cinema Editors, Canada's national association dedicated to excellence in the craft of editing, from 2014-2018.
