I’m Johnny Daukes and I’m a film editor. Over the past two years I’ve cut the movies Fisherman’s Friends and Finding Your Feet. I started editing soon after leaving school but the pull of writing and recording music was strong. I started a band and the resulting journey lead me through music, to writing comedy, to writing and directing film and finally back to what I really love – editing film. On this site you can watch and listen to many of the projects I’ve undertaken that make up my highly eclectic CV.
‘If your editor is slow, seems to agree with everything you say (or argue over every suggestion), kills every Oscar-winning joke you teased from your cast and is a bit boring, then you haven’t employed Johnny Daukes’. Richard Loncraine, Director – Finding Your Feet
‘Johnny works relentlessly, is a wonderful collaborator and incredibly supportive throughout the process. I couldn’t do a project without him’. Chris Foggin, Director – Fisherman’s Friends
