FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

8 April 2020

To help address the difficult work situation due to the COVID-19 crisis during lockdown, the Directors and Editors Guild of New Zealand has compiled a database of members who can carry out editing, colour grading and effects work with equipment they have at home.

Fifty five editors are currently listed in the database and are ready to take on paid projects across every type of content, including scripted, factual, documentary, narrative feature, branded content and commercials. Many have websites where you can see examples of their work.

The database has the contact details, websites where available and the platform/software that the editor has available to do work. It can be downloaded here from a sub-directory in COVID CORNER of the DEGNZ website.

All those on the database have agreed to share their information and can be contacted directly through the details provided and or via their website.
