Debra Karen became interested in film when she took an elective course in Cinema at Dawson College in Montreal which was taught by Larry Kent. While studying, she was hired as a second assistant editor to work at Cinepix on their production of Across This Land with Stompin? Tom Connors.

When that film finished she remained at Cinepix working on hundreds of commercials for the films they distributed while finishing her education at night and during summer ?holidays?, graduating in Communication Arts, magna cum laude.

?Editing was a career choice that meant everything to me?, Debra says. ?There was always something to learn, puzzles to solve and new challenges to be faced. For someone who loves movies, it is the best career choice. The editor tells the story of the film in a way that is appropriate to the story. Does the scene call for shock or suspense? Should the editing be invisible or aggressive? The editor makes every person on a film, whether in front of the camera or behind, look good. I can?t think of a better profession.?

Her credits at Cinepix included Bill Fruet?s Death Weekend, Eddie Matalon?s Blackout, Ivan Reitman?s Meatballs, Larry Kent?s Yesterday and J. Lee Thompson?s Happy Birthday to Me.

Debra worked on many Canadian and American TV movies and miniseries, working with directors including Philip Saville, George Kaczender, Pierre Gang, Simon Wincer and Tim Southam. Her association with Joseph Sargent was the most productive and included eight TV movies and miniseries including: Day One starring Brian Dennehy and David Strathairn; The Incident starring Walter Matthau; Ivory Hunters starring John Lithgow, Isabella Rossellini and James Earl Jones; Mandela and de Klerk starring Sidney Poitier and Michael Caine; Streets of Laredo starring James Garner and Sissy Spacek; and Salem Witch Trials starring Kirstie Alley, Henry Czerny, Alan Bates, Peter Ustinov and Shirley MacLaine.

Debra is an icon of this industry ? literally? hers is the face of Cronenberg?s Shivers. Debra currently resides with her husband, Michael in Hudson, Québec.
