NDH7's guest was the prolific editor and now director Andrew Hulme (Mar 2015).
Andrew's directing debut was the Cannes 2014 film Snow in Paradise, and he was the editor of
Gangster No.1, Control, Red Riding, The American & The Imposter amongst many others.
With over 25 years experience in the film and television industry. Andrew is recognised as one of the
UK’s top film editors, he has worked in both drama and documentary, in Europe and in Hollywood.
He has worked prominently with director Paul McGuigan, editing films such as Acid House (1998),
Gangster No. 1 (2000) and Lucky Number Slevin (2005), for which he won the award for Best Editing
at the Milan Film Festival 2006. Andrew has also worked on films such as Control (2007) and
The American (2010) for director Anton Corbijn, as well as Bart Layton’s acclaimed hit feature
documentary The Imposter (2011).
Andrew has also edited significantly in television, on such dramas as ITV’s Appropriate Adult,
the BBC/HBO Hitchcock feature The Girl (2012), and Channel 4’s crime saga Red Riding 1974,
for which he was nominated for a BAFTA TV award for best editing in 2010.
Andrew transitioned to directing in 2013 with his first feature film, Snow In Paradise, which he
co-wrote with Martin Askew, and which featured in competition in the ‘Un Certain Regard’
strand of the Cannes Film Festival 2014 and at the LFF. The film was released theatrically in
the UK and France.
Andrew had some amazing insights into working with Paul McGuigan and Anton Corbijn,
the impact of editing on the films he's worked on and on his directing style, and spoke about the
financing and production of his breakthrough directorial debut Snow in Paradise with clips.
