Antony Gibbs

Antony Gibbs (born 17 October 1925) is a British film and television editor with more than 40 feature film credits. Gibbs' editing career began in the mid 1950s as an assistant to Ralph Kemplen and to Alan Osbiston, and through them he became involved with the brief "New Wave" of British filmmaking at its beginnings. In particular Osbiston (and Gibbs) edited The Entertainer (1960), which was directed by Tony Richardson; Richardson was one of the most prominent of the British New Wave directors. Gibbs was then principal editor for several of the subsequent "New Wave" films, including Richardson's A Taste of Honey (1961), The Loneliness of the Long Distance Runner (1962), and Tom Jones (1963), and also The Knack ...and How to Get It (1965), which was directed by Richard Lester. In his 1995 book, Film and Video Editing, Roger Crittenden notes the influence of this first phase of Gibbs' editing career, "The generation of American editors of which Dede Allen is a part has given considerable credit for the inspiration of their work to Antony Gibbs, the English editor of films directed by, amongst others, Tony Richardson, Nicholas Roeg, and Richard Lester.
