Prior to making his mark on the MCU, Paul had worked with some of today's most innovative filmmakers; from Harmony Korine (Mister Lonely) and Michel Gondry (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, to Lena Dunham (Girls, Camping). Paul cut his first feature at age 24 for Gus Van Sant (Gerry). Moving easily between independent and studio projects, he has worked with such noted directors as Tom Dicillo, Joel Schumacher, and Mike Judge (the pilot episode of Silicon Valley). He has also edited two films for Judd Apatow (This is 40 and Trainwreck, for which he received an ACE award nomination). Paul is also an accomplished commercial editor and a member of American Cinema Editors.
EMMA McCLEAVE ("Florida" Alligator Loki)
Emma McCleave studied at Flinders University Film School in Adelaide, Australia, and within the York University Film program in Canada. On graduation, Emma moved to Sydney where she started her career as a Commercials Assistant Editor, before moving to films in 2008. Through her career Emma trained under some of the most prolific editors in the film industry, including Dody Dorn ACE (Australia, London Boulevard, Fury, Come Away), Michael McCusker ACE (Australia, Captain America: The First Avenger), Chris Dickens ACE (Rocketman), Conrad Buff ACE (Thor: The Dark World, Infinite) and Paul Hirsch ACE (The Mummy).
CALUM ROSS (The One True Loki)
Calum Ross has been in TV cutting rooms for fourteen years. Over that time he has routinely taken on one of the most feared genres in editing, comedy. Calum has been in the cutting rooms of shows such as Pixelface, Murder in Successville, Lovesick, Action Team and his latest work featuring the comedy duo of Sue Perkins and Mel Giedroyc, Hitmen. But it was his work on the Netflix original series, Sex Education that first introduced him to director Kate Herron, a job that would ultimate land him on Marvel's Loki, once again working with Kate.
