Still from 'Happentance' featuring a teenage girl being pinned to the ground by another girl.  She looks distressed. Still from AFTRS student film 'Happenstance' which JJ worked on.

AFTRS editing alumnus Jason "JJ" Jamieson (2011) is chuffed, to say the least, that his application for the American Cinema Editors Internship Program, which accepts just two American and one international editor each year, was successful - making him the sole successful international applicant.

JJ told us, "I totally get honoured with a plaque from the ACE at next year's Eddie awards in Hollywood and get to meet and be mentored by the masters of the craft that I, myself, aspire to be a master of."

One of the requirements of Jason's application was to include two professional references - one of which was given by outgoing AFTRS Head of Editing Luke Doolan and the other from his 'soundie peer' Fabrice Galli. Jason wanted to acknowledge the support of Luke and Fabrice and thank them for the "nice things they had to say about me".

Stellar effort and big congratulations Jason.
