On the Big Screen


Over the last 20 years, Lightworks has been used to cut many Hollywood blockbusters, including the titles shown above.

The list of famous Lightworks editors includes: Jill Bilcock (Moulin Rouge, Romeo & Juliet), Tariq Anwar (Revolutionary Road, The King’s Speech), Sally Menke (Pulp Fiction), Peter Honess (L.A. Confidential - for which he won a BAFTA) and UK editor Chris Gill (28 Days Later and Centurion).

Multi-Oscar-winner Thelma Schoonmaker and her team (Hugo 3D, The Departed, Gangs of New York, and the acclaimed thriller Shutter Island) used Lightworks for Martin Scorsese’s latest film “The Wolf of Wall Street” with Leonardo DiCaprio, for which she has just been nominated for a BAFTA.
