Brian Funck is an editor and producer of award-winning documentaries for film and television. Recent projects include two investigative true-crime series, My Brother's Bomber (two Emmy awards) and Who Killed Malcolm X? (Emmy nomination), which were instrumental in the arrest of new suspects or the exoneration of old ones. Brian was an editor and co-producer of the PBS-Frontline documentaries, Confronting ISIS and Separated: Children at the Border, both of which won a Peabody Award. He was editor and co-writer of I.M. Pei: Building China Modern for PBS-American Masters (CINE Golden Eagle winner) and After the Fall: HIV Grows Up, which won a SIMA Award for Best Editing Documentary Short. He was also an editor on Happy Valley, which premiered at Sundance, and a contributing editor on Long Strange Trip, which was shortlisted for an Academy Award.
Brian is regularly involved in the heavy lifting stages of post-production: finding the story, combing interviews and transcripts, helping to create a workable structure. An experienced musician and music editor, he also frequently collaborates with directors and composers to help craft and edit a score that complements the film.
He lives in Cambridge, Mass., with his wife Sara Hendren and their three children. Photo by his seven-year-old son.
