LIFETIME ACHIEVEMENT RECIPIENTS TO BE CELEBRATED AT THE AWARDS!
George Appleby 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, cutting 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, many others. On hand to help us celebrate his vibrant career and life were many members of the Appleby family, including brother Dave and niece Hope who accepted the award on his behalf.
Since 1970, Ron Wisman has been an integral component of the editing community in Canada. THE VIOLIN, one of the first films that he cut, was nominated for an Academy Award. Since then he has built an impressive resume with 89 titles to date, 39 of which are MOW’s; it is more than fair to say that he is at home in long form narrative. Ron delivered a wonderful speech recounting his early years and early mentors, preceded by an introduction by son and editor Ron Jr.
