David Mullins - is a Director and Film Editor currently working at Arcadia TV, offline and online editing for broadcasters like National Geographic and the History Channel. He first discovered film editing while in graphic design school where he made in-camera edited short films, and cut a music video using two VHS decks. After spending 5 years in the publishing industry, he decided that that life wasn’t for him. Being a film buff he joined the Atlantic Filmmakers Co-op, and wrote and directed a film through the 1 minute film course. Being officially bit by the film bug, he discovered the Screen Arts program at the Nova Scotia Community College, graduating in 2006. Always drawn to film editing, he went directly into the post production part of the film industry, working with some of the top film editors in the city. Over the past 8 plus years he has worked on numerous TV shows for Food Network Canada, DIY network and Discovery and Rogers. In the past two years he has focused his attention on documentaries and short films, cutting the documentary Edge of East for Jackie Torrens and Jessica Brown which premiered on CBC and was audience voted best documentary at the Parrsboro Film Festival. He has held almost every position in the post production industry from an editing assistant to a post production supervisor. David now turns his attention these days back to directing, making his first short film in over 10 years, Hero D, which was made through the Film 5 program at AFCOOP and premiered at the 2014 Atlantic Film Festival. He continues writing with plans for 2 more short films in 2015.
