Nora Gully is a curious and compassionate video editor who specializes in long-form documentary films. She values the opportunity to learn about people's lives and bring their stories to the screen. Having spent five years at legendary doc house Kartemquin Films, her heart lies in making films about under-reported issues and using media to bring about social change.
Nora's knack for organization, story and technical chops make her a sought-after collaborator. She is also a fluent French speaker and is always happy to take on foreign-language projects, having picked up Spanish and a little Persian, Arabic, Croatian, Japanese and Creole along the way.
As the assistant editor to Steve James and Aaron Wickenden on the Emmy-award-winning The Interrupters, Nora was instrumental in finishing the film for its successful festival run. She went on to become post supervisor and additional editor, delivering versions to broadcasters around the world.
Nora was most recently an additional editor on the Oscar-nominated Finding Vivian Maier and post production supervisor for Almost There. She was also one of eight Assistant Editor Fellows chosen for the 2014 Sundance Doc Edit & Story Labs, where she was mentored by the best in the business. She is currently freelance.
