Jonathan Redmond

https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0975108/

Jonathan Redmond is a Los Angeles based editor with over 25 years of experience in the industry. He has a longstanding work partnership with Oscar-nominated director Baz Luhrmann spanning 22 years and has collaborated on all his audio visual projects in various capacities since Moulin Rouge!

Alongside co-editor Matt Villa, he most recently edited Luhrmann’s critically-acclaimed feature Elvis, starring Austin Butler. In their review of Elvis, The Hollywood Reporter said, "The rapid-fire cutting of editors Matt Villa and Jonathan Redmond allows Luhrmann to whip through the meteoric rise in popularity, the landing of an RCA recording contract and the encroaching threat of political morality police at the same time."

Redmond also edited Luhrmann’s screen adaption of The Great Gatsby, which earned him the Best Editing Award from both the Australian Academy of Cinema and Television Arts (AACTA) and the Film Critics Circle of Australia (FCCA); as well as a nomination from the Australian Screen Editors Guild (ASE) for Best Editing on a Feature Film. Prior to Gatsby, Jonathan worked on Luhrmann’s Oscar-winning musical feature Moulin Rouge! as the first assistant editor. Jonathan’s further credits include Luhrmann’s Netflix series, The Get Down and advertising campaigns for Chanel and H&M x ERDEM. 

Jonathan hails from Ireland and then lived in Australia for 14 years where he enjoyed a fruitful career working in film, documentaries and commercials. He then moved to New York and more recently Los Angeles where he is now based.

MATT VILLA (ASE, ACE) is an award-winning Australian editor who has worked in the industry for nearly three decades. Matt is a frequent collaborator of Baz Luhrmann, having worked with him on ‘Moulin Rouge!’ and ‘Australia,’ for which he received an Australian Screen Editors (ASE) Guild nomination, as well as ‘The Great Gatsby,’ for which he won Best Editing Awards from both the Australian Academy of Cinema and Television Arts (AACTA) and the Film Critics Circle of Australia (FCCA), and earned an addition nomination from ASE for Best Editing on a Feature Film. Up next, he and Luhrmann are tackling ‘Elvis,’ a biopic about the eponymous singer.

Matt has worked on numerous films with genre directors The Spierig Brothers, including ‘Winchester,’ ‘Daybreakers,’ and their sci-fi thriller ‘Predestination,’ for which he again won a Best Editing Award from both AACTA and the FCCA. In addition, he was nominated for the AACTA and FCCA Best Editing Award for Russell Crowe’s ‘The Water Diviner.’

Matt also has a variety of family-friendly, animated film credits including ‘Happy Feet’ and ‘Happy Feet Two,’ ‘Legend of The Guardians: The Owls Of Ga’hoole,’ ‘Peter Rabbit 2,’ and ‘The Lego Batman Movie,’ for which he was nominated for an ACE award and an Annie Award for Outstanding Achievement in Editing for an Animated Feature Production.
