Marc Boudignon has over ten years experience working in post-production, editing documentaries, short films, commercials and music videos.
While completing his BA in Film and Video Production at York University, he spent two summers in a cold, dark office making rough cuts for the History Channel series It Seems Like Yesterday
, hosted by then-unknown Rick Mercer. After continuing his studies at Sheridan College, where he obtained his diploma in Media Arts, Marc went on to intern at Stealing Time, an editing house specializing in commercials. He must have made an impression there because, after the internship was up, they decided to keep him. Marc spent the next seven years at Stealing Time, working his way up from assistant to editor.
Eventually, the over-politicized world of hair-removal products and fried chicken started to overwhelm him. After a chance encounter with Fr. Thomas Rosica, he was given the opportunity to move to the greener pastures of Salt + Light. Marc accepted this offer with aplomb and hasn’t looked back.
Since 2005, he has edited episodes of Catholic Focus
, Mothering: Full of Grace
and Word for Word
, as well as full-length documentaries like Opus Dei: Decoding God’s Work
(winner of Best TV Documentary at the Trent Religion Today Film Festival), Turning the Tide
(winner at Niepokalanow Film Festival, Signis Belarus Film Festival and Polinijni Festival Multimedialny) and Road of Hope: The Spiritual Journey of Cardinal Nguyen Van Thuan
(Honourable Mention winner at the 2008 Columbus International Film Festival).
Some of his most recent editing projects, include the following documentaries: Good's Doorkeeper: St. André of Montreal
, This Side of Eden
During those rare times when Marc is not alone in front of a computer screen editing, he enjoys being alone in front of a computer screen writing. He has published a couple of short stories, some poetry and worked for a time as a freelance journalist for Chart Magazine. Currently, he is writing his second novel. Otherwise, Marc enjoys running, mountain biking, reading, live music and going to the movies. Marc lives in Oshawa with his wife Nola. If ever given the choice, Marc can say with the utmost certainty, there is not a single scene in his life that he would edit out.
