Hi, my name is Chris Quick and I have been working as an editor and producer in Glasgow for over 10 years. During a month long backpacking trip round Europe in the summer of 2006, I decided to ditch my initial plans to study Economics upon my return and instead trained to become a film editor.
In 2009, I co founded Quick Off The Mark Productions with Mark Ferguson and together we spent nearly seven years providing a variety of different content and even made our very first feature film In Search of La Che which premiered at the Glasgow Film Theatre on the 9th of November 2011. In addition to this, we also enjoyed success in the international film festival circuit with our short films such as The Greyness of Autumn which marked my directorial debut. During my time at QOTMP, I also had the privilege of being involved in the Katana Fighting Series hosted by Global Kombat Entertainment and edited a total of 11 live shows.
Since 2013, I have been working on a number of short film projects as a freelance editor. Most notably in 2014, I was the editor and producer for the short sci-fi film Electric Faces directed by Johnny Herbin. The film went on to be nominated for the Best Writer (Johnny Herbin) accolade at the 2016 BAFTA Scotland New Talent Awards. In the same year, I also reunited with my long term film collaborator Andy McEwan to make a sequel to The Greyness of Autumn entitled Autumn Never Dies.
Outside of editing, I have been very active in the independent film community in Glasgow serving as the deputy director of the Glasgow Filmmakers Alliance which I co founded with Andrew O’Donnell. I have also been a member of BAFTA Scotland since 2012 and in 2017 I was accepted into the Guild of British Film & Television Editors.
I have my own Premiere Pro CC Edit suite on a 5K resolution iMac system with access to Final Cut X and Da Vinci Resolve Studio 14. On my site you can find a selection of my work including a detailed credit list and showreel. For work enquiries, please contact me here.
Chris and I have worked together on multiple occasions and he is my "go to" guy for ALL my filming and social media needs. His work has been exemplary and I find it very reassuring to know that I can rely on him to help me with anything I require in those capacitates and also to actually improve on tasks and projects we do.

Chris is a guy who is not only talented but has a fantastic work ethic. Respects everyone he works with, gets the best out of his collaborators and has a wicked sense of humour. Professional to the core a guy of metal integrity. Worked with Chris a couple of times and each time was great. Can't recommend him enough as a true Scottish talent and a decent human being.

I have worked with Chris on a few productions when he has been both Stills Photographer and Director. He is very professional in his approach and captures those moments in a production that enhances the whole film process in a natural and unobtrusive way I would certainly recommend working with Chris.

I've had the pleasure of working for Chris on a couple of his films, Broken Record and Autumn Never Dies. Chris is very easy to work with, And as a director takes time to explain what he actually wants from his actors/actresses and gives you freedom to express your own ideas. Looking forward to working with Chris and his team again.

I would work with Chris in a heartbeat. He is organised and enjoys what he does while producing quality work.
