Personal Profile

Chris Quick

Before training as an editor, Chris's background was in Theatre. At school he participated in various dramatic productions and in his final year formed what would become NARC Productions which included actor Neil Francis. Following school, Chris continued with Narc Productions until it disbanded in early 2008. Chris retrained as a video editor and together with his class mate Mark D. Ferguson formed the television production company Quick Off The Mark Productions in October 2009.

In the summer of 2010, Chris and Mark teamed up with their former class mate Andy S. McEwan to write their first feature film In Search of La Che (2011). In the same year, Chris also founded the online film database, the Glasgow Filmmakers Alliance with actor Andrew O'Donnell and in June he became a member of BAFTA Scotland. Chris reunited with Andy S. McEwan later that year to write and produce the short puppet comedy The Greyness of Autumn (2012).

2013 saw new editing collaborations forming for Chris, particularly with 'Joseph Andrew McLean'. The pair worked together during the post production of a variety of shorts including Sectarian Secret Police (2013) which was well received at the Loch Ness Film Festival in Dundee. The Greyness of Autumn (2012) also enjoyed a variety of success in 2013 with it being awarded the Best British Film (for April) by the British Filmmakers Alliance. In addition to this, the film enjoyed a successful run at a number of UK film festivals as well as screenings in the Untied States and Ireland.

Chris has also played a significant role in the filming of the Katana Fighting Series since its launch in 2010. Over the years he has overseen its transition form a single camera shoot to a multi camera setup and together with Mark D. Ferguson brought in high definition coverage of the shows. He has also produced and edited the coverage of every event and with the exception of Duncan Airlie James, he is the only crew member to have attended every show.
