Editor Claire McGonigal speaks to Little Black Book about the work that made her, from the warped work of Chris Cunnigham to West Wing walks-and-talks.
An award-winning editor represented by Final Cut, Claire McGonigal edits across the board; commercials, music videos and longform. This year, Claire has worked with director Tim Godsall on Booking.com’s Super Bowl LVI campaign, starring Idris Elba, and director Jake Scott on an Amazon campaign starring kids being cute. She recently edited a number of concert visuals for ABBA’s groundbreaking Voyage concert, working alongside editor Struan Clay.
Claire’s narrative film work has been recognised by international awards bodies and film festivals. Her short film ‘Filling’ earned her a Best Editing award at the Kino Film Festival. Recently, her work on “I Wish For You,” starring Jeremy Irons and Maxine Peake, was awarded with a Gold for Best Editing at the Cannes Short Film Festival and Vegas Short Film Festival.
