David B. Thompson, CCE began his career in the 1980s as an editor on classic Canadian programming such as THE LITTLEST HOBO and NIGHT HEAT. Over the years, his work spanned all genres, from action/comedy (DUE SOUTH) to science fiction (LEXX, DARK MATTER), and period dramas (THE KENNEDYS). A stalwart presence in the industry for over 50 years, David left a body of work that is almost as big as his heart.
A fantastic editor, mentor, storyteller, jokester, and a great friend to so many, David was part of the first group of inductees to receive the CCE initials in 2008. He won an award at the inaugural CCE Awards in 2011, and over the course of his career garnered 5 Gemini nominations, two 2 DGC and CCE Award nominations, as well as an Emmy nomination for the pilot episode of “24”.
David always said “Cut with your gut, use your feelings to tell the story.”
