This past Friday we were joined by the talented Editor of “Peaky Blinders” and “Unforgotten” Mark Davis! Join us!

FRIDAY, JULY 30th | 2:00 PM EDT | 11:00 AM PDT

Kicking off his career directing Music Videos, Mark Davis fell into editing when cutting his own promos. Always fixated on making narrative music videos rather than documenting the band playing their instruments, he created short films for artists as diverse as The Kills, Funeral 4 A Friend, James Blunt and The Corrs.

His first edit job for broadcast was a wild dramedy/musical/soap called Metrosexuality. From there he went on to work on prestigious one-off dramas such as “One Night,” before moving onto shows such as “Sherlock,” “Peaky Blinders,” “Black Mirror,” “Taboo” and “The Crown.” These big shows have been intercut with work on three seasons of “Unforgotten,” that has had a much bigger impact than their humble scripts and budget expected.

Mark has also continued to direct short form clips and has produced two Feature Films; urban teen flick “,” released by Universal and sold to 19 territories, and the black and white sci-fi noir “The Dark Channel” which is finishing it’s final mix in August.

Before the age of digital, mentorship played a key role in film crews, post rooms, and a filmmaker’s career development. Places like the cutting room were hubs for passing on techniques, ideas, war stories, teamwork, and developing relationships that would help you evolve your career. You would move from trainee to assistant, and eventually, the day would come where you became a full-fledged Cinematographer, Editor, Colorist, VFX Artist or any other position in the film industry.

Pros who had worked years and were coming close to the end of their career, delighted in sharing their knowledge and ideas that they had learned over the decades. However, in the digital era, young film professionals are thrust into positions without having the chance to learn from those at the top of their game.
Filmmaker U was created to help fill this void in the modern-day film industry. This online education series brings the best in the business from behind the camera, to any aspiring artist anywhere in the world who can no longer obtain this type of apprenticeship.
