After completing art school in the UK David moved to Los Angeles and cut dozens of high profile music videos, winning the MVPA’s Best Editing award in 2005 for Blink 182’s Always.


David’s studio feature film work includes Warner Brothers’ tongue in-cheek action film Torque and coming of age movie ATL.


Recent indie features are Adventures Of Power, which debuted at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival and Detention, which debuted at SXSW 2011.


David also cuts commercials for all the major brands, winning the 2011 AICE award for Adidas ‘MiCoach’.

 “I’ve done a lot of work with action, visual effects and music, but first and foremost, I cut for emotion.


Storytelling is key, I pay most attention to the emotional arc of the characters and the story”

Blackburn lives in downtown Los Angeles.
