Lisa Gunning is an English film editor, director and writer. In 2014 she wrote and directed the acclaimed ‘Tales of Us’, five stories, each one based on a song from the Goldfrapp album ‘Tales Of Us‘. It was screened in over 400 cinemas across the world.
Her highly successful career as an editor began in 1998 after a chance meeting with Anthony Minghella, which ended up sparking a long-running partnership. After working on some musical sequences for ‘The Talented Mr Ripley’, her first feature was Minghella’s ‘Breaking & Entering’. She went on to work on ‘Killshot’, ‘Salmon Fishing in the Yemen’ and ‘Seven Psychopaths’. Gunning has also collaborated extensively with artist and filmmaker Sam Taylor-Wood on her BAFTA Award winning short film ‘Love You More’, her first feature ‘Nowhere Boy’ and ’50 Shades of Grey’.
She has a number of feature film developments that she will direct. She was recently selected for Ryan Murphy’s TV mentorship ‘Half Initiative’.
