Outsider Editorial is a Post-Production Boutique that puts story-telling above all else. Built on the premise that Editors could and should be as mobile as Directors. Outsider Editorial opened it’s doors in June 2018. Alison Gordon moved back from working abroad in Paris, and Chris Murphy from Los Angeles to launch this new venture in the city where they began their careers – Toronto, Canada. Alison & Chris partnered with their former colleague Michael Barker, and an internationally experienced EP and friend, Kristina Anzlinger, to make their dream a reality. An offline Post-Production Boutique made for Editors by Editors.
