Ralph Brunjes, CCE, started his career at the CBC in the 60s, coming up through the ranks as an assistant editor, sound editor and film editor on groundbreaking dramas and documentaries such as Wojeck, The Whiteoaks of Jalna, The Nature of Things and This Land of Ours. He was promoted to Editor in Charge at age 27 and a year later to Assistant Supervising Editor in charge of the day to day running of the Film Department. He had the great pleasure of working with Glenn Gould on the soundtrack of the legendary documentary The Idea of North.

In 1975 Ralph went freelance and focused on drama editing, amassing a large list of credits on over 50 television movies, 16 features, 13 mini-series and multiple TV series. His commitment to excellence in the craft of editing has earned him multiple nominations and awards over the years, including Best Sound and Best Picture Editing Awards the first year of the Geminis, and an Emmy nomination for Joan of Arc.

Ralph has always valued his role as a mentor to young and emerging talent. Throughout his career he has enjoyed working with many great filmmakers, developing lifelong friendships and creative collaborations.

Rik Morden grew up in Hamilton, Ontario and discovered an interest in painting early on. He combined this interest with his passion for storytelling and quickly became an editor hailed for precision, artistry and creativity. Throughout his 35-year career Rik edited feature films, corporate presentations, TV commercials and music videos (which he also produced and directed; Stray Cats, Rush, Chris De Burgh). He was also the rare Canadian to have won an Emmy Award—in 2000 for outstanding achievement in single camera editing for his work on the HBO movie, Mary Cassatt: An American Impressionist.

Rik was rewarded for his efforts with many other awards and nominations. He was nominated for another Emmy in 1999 for Edison: The Wizard of Light, won a Directors Guild of Canada Team Award in 2007 for his editing of the well-reviewed documentary Sharkwater, and was nominated for several other DGC and Gemini awards (Beethoven Lives Upstairs, Rembrandt: Fathers and Sons, Bailey’s Billion$).

Rik’s diversity of talent and pursuit of excellence made him a singular talent and mentor amongst editors.

Gary L. “Kelly” Smith, CCE, was amongst the pioneers of electronic post production and widely known in the Toronto and L.A. communities of editors. His career began at CKNX-TV in Wingham, Ontario in the late 1960’s and flourished until his passing.

To work with him, you would find that he was kind of a quiet guy, but he demanded professionalism on the job and it could be said that “he did not suffer fools gladly”. If you did your job, he had your back. With that trust and his well-known sense of humour (which ran more towards practical jokes), he maintained a core group of friends for more than 40 years.

Professionally, Kelly Smith rose to the top of the game, but he did not sacrifice his family or his private life to the business. He married his wife Sandy in 1979 and together they had a daughter, Kerry, and a son, Sean. He was a Blue Jays fan, a life-long rock and roller, as well as being very handy with his hands, whether it was wood working or building a home theatre, he had many projects that intrigued him. He enjoyed socializing with his many friends—and like his family, they miss him too

Collaborating with John Woo, Michael Anderson, Ted Kotcheff and Canadian legend Don Shebib to name a few, he has helped shape performances of many Hollywood legends; from Charlton Heston and Vanessa Redgrave to Lloyd Bridges and Christopher Plummer.

George Appleby’s life was defined by love, success and adventure, all of which he shared freely with the people he met and worked with. He had a lot of friends.

Though born in Toronto, at age nine, George moved with his family to Bogota, Columbia, when his father was transferred there for work. In Bogota, George was educated in Spanish and English, until his teens, when he returned to Canada.

After high school, tall and handsome George set his sights on acting. He hung around the University of Toronto’s Hart House Theatre, and its then director, Robert Gill, absorbing the world of theatre. But it was the editing suite that eventually took his interest after he landed his first job on the CBC series, The Forest Rangers, in the early 1960s. He would go on to work steadily as an editor right up until his death in December 1999.

George cut many of Canada’s iconic series and feature films, from Adventures in Rainbow Country, Street Legal, and Cold Squad to Outrageous, The Silent Partner, Isabel, and many others. He received numerous awards for his work, including Canadian Film Editors Guild awards, an Etrog and a Genie nomination.
