Cindy discovered editing at uni and since 1985 has been freelancing in post production. Momentary highlights are working for the BBC as a holiday relief film assistant editor (say that when you're drunk on warm English beer); cutting her first feature Everynight..Everynight; being a dialogue editor on Fred Schepisi's IQ, cutting a US kids fantasy flick with thirty minutes of martial arts to a documentary on Van Nguyen Just Punishment and a feature on US skateboard company World Industries called The Man who Souled the World. Cindy is a self confessed editing addict and is happy to tallk about editing to anyone who's interested. Cindy recently completed the feature film Van Diemen's Land.
