FREE Careers Workshop from the National Film and Television School


Interested in a career as an editor for Film and TV? We are excited to be talking to multi-talented Gillian Simpson about her career and the roles she has taken

About Gillian

She was director on BBC’s The Music Show where she shot, directed and edited a number of music videos.
She then moved to the Innovations department, working to create a ground-breaking drama shot entirely against green screen.
Editing over 40 documentaries developed her love for storytelling and she began writing original short films.
She also fell in love with VFX whilst main editor on the BAFTA-winning children’s series ‘Raven’, and successfully applied to the Digital Effects MA course at National Film and Television School.

She was VFX supervisor on a number of short film including ‘Wild Horses’, which was officially selected for Cannes, and ‘Poles Apart’ which won the BAFTA for Best Animated short and the Audience Award at the Edinburgh International Film Festival. Gillian has worked on Wes Anderson’s ‘Isle of Dogs’ and ‘The French Dispatch’ and Tim Burton’s ‘Dumbo’. She was on-set compositor on Sam Mendes’ ‘1917’ and also worked on Andy Serkis’s ‘Venom 2’ and Matthew Vaughn’s ‘The King’s Man’ She recently completed work on Season One of House of the Dragon

Alongside her VFX work, Gillian continued writing and directing shorts including ‘The Ticket’, which was shortlisted by the BBC Films Bridge to Industry fund, and her last short ‘Charged’, was selected for a number of festivals including Video Art and Experimental Film Festival in New York.

Currently in post-production on her latest shot ‘Dandelion’ she is also adapting the award winning play ‘Grenades’ which she hopes will be her first feature.
