Doolan appointed AFTRS head of editing

Oscar-nominated Miracle Fish director and Animal Kingdom editor Luke Doolan has been appointed head of editing at the Australian Film Television and Radio School.

“I am delighted to welcome Luke to AFTRS. His extensive experience and creative drive will certainly prove to be a real asset for our students. His career path to date has been inspirational, and we feel his hands on experience will translate well into the practical education that AFTRS offers. He is a great addition to our roster of teachers who are all highly experienced working professionals,” said AFTRS CEO Sandra Levy.

Doolan’s editing credits include The Square, Ten Empty and New Skin, as well as the shorts Spider, Crossbow, Lucky and Fuel. He assisted Jill Bilcock on Moulin Rouge and edited previsualisation on both Australia and Baz Luhrmann’s failed project Alexander, as well as the Sydney-shot Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith.

Doolan replaces acting head of editing Phillippa Harvey, who wil continue to work in the editing division.
