Rachel Meyrick

Rachel Meyrick began her editing career 20 years ago when she started working with Sam Sneade in commercials. After editing two feature films, she decided to become a freelancer and started working with commercials and documentaries. Rachel has edited long form documentaries for Keo Films, directed commercials for ROVI in the US and Cancer Research UK, and she created and documented a film school for kids in St. Vincent and the Grenadines. She currently directs, produces and edits shorter form films, mainly, fundraising films for charities,. Rachel recently edited Jason Barkerís feature documentary A DEAL WITH THE UNIVERSE which premiered at BFI Flare Film Festival in London.

Rachelís journey form extreme budget commercials to modest budget fundraising films reflects her need to use filmmaking to make visible those on the further edges of our societies that are in need. To save money on the budget and be able to make WHAT DOESN'T KILL ME, she has taken on all roles within the film production: camera, sound, producer, direct and editor. WHAT DOESN'T KILL ME is Rachelís first feature as director and is distributed by Women Make Movies in North America. The film won the ACTIVISM AWARD at the Awareness Film Festival in Los Angeles in 2017 and recently had its UK premiere at the LONDON FEMINIST FILM FESTIVAL. (8/18)
