Douglas Crise graduated from the University of Pittsburgh with a degree in film studies and moved to Los Angeles in 1992 to find work in the film industry. Over the next five years he worked on a variety of films as an assistant film editor. In 1997, Crise worked as an assistant editor on the film Clockwatchers, with lead editor, Stephen Mirrione. This was the beginning of what would be a long-lasting collaboration between Crise and Mirrione. Crise assisted Mirrione on several great films, “Go,” “Traffic,” “Oceans 11,” “21 Grams,” and “Good Night, and Good Luck.” Eventually, Crise and Mirrione collaborated as co-editors on Alejandro González Iñárritu’s 2006 film, Babel. For their work on the film, Crise and Mirrione received nominations for the Academy Award and the BAFTA Award for Best Editing, and won the Eddie Award for Best Edited Feature Film – Dramatic. He has since edited John August’s “The Nines,” starring Ryan Reynolds and Melissa McCarthy; David Schimmer’s “Trust,” starring Clive Owen; and Nicholas Jarecki’s “Arbitrage,” starring Richard Gere which has received much critical acclaim. His collaboration with filmmaker Harmony Korine on “Spring Breakers” which stars James Franco and Selena Gomez has been talked about as revolutionary. Crise has most recently collaborated with Mirrione again on Alejandro González Iñárritu’s 2014 Best Picture Oscar winner Birdman: Or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance). The film received a BAFTA nomination for editing and won the Critics Choice award for editing. Crise has just finished work on Diego Luna’s film “Mr. Pig” starring Danny Glover and Maya Rudolph.
