BIOGRAPHY

« Le montage d’un film, c’est comme un voyage. On ne sait pas où il va nous amener ni ce qu’il va faire de nous ». – Marie-Pierre Renaud

 

Marie-Pierre Renaud’s capacity to work as an editor in a variety of languages and formats was portented at the start of her editing career.

Renaud cut her teeth editing foreign news reportages for French Television. Progressing quickly to longer formats, documentaries and feature film with Claude Lelouch and Milos Forman, lead Renaud to live and work in NYC, training in tandem in 35mm and digital formats.

The last 30 years Renaud has managed a trans-Atlantic career based in both, Paris and NYC, editing independant feature films with directors including Peter Weir, Taylor Hackford and Jean-Paul Salomé, alongside documentaries, TV series and commercials in Paris for Renault, Orangina, Brut de Pomme and Obao.

With her reputation established, emerging foreign films directors sought Renaud out, leading her to edit a variety of independant, foreign, documentaries and films from Morocco, Algeria, Israel, China and in Lebanon with the award winning independant feature « The Kite ».
