Agathe was born in Toulouse in the south of France, her love of film was communicated to her by her father who was a television director. She was fed movies from La Nouvelle Vague since she was a little girl and grew up quoting Truffaut at the breakfast table. She studied cinema and editing in Paris for three years where she fell head over heels for the art of stitching.

After living in France, Canada and Australia she decided to lay her hat in London where she’s been living for the last 7 years. She comes with a varied background, from Mood Films, to Music Videos, Promos to Short Films, and fully understands the importance of rhythm and pacing within each genre.

Agathe began her career as a commercials edit assistant which taught her to work to tight deadlines and work closely with creatives & clients. She is an extremely well organized, professional and a quick editor that pays attention to the smallest details. 

At the beginning of 2018, Agathe and editor Kat Janes have started a collective of female editors called “The Edit Collective” which is a community of ethically minded female, non binary and trans editor who share work, tips, support and advice in order to create a fairer, more balanced work environment in the industry we love.

Clients enjoy having her on board as she is patient, kind and doesn’t take herself too seriously.
