Kaisa Pitsi

Documentary Editor & Filmmaker 


"Kaisa cuts beautifully, has great instincts

and approaches footage with a real creative eye!

I was so busy show running, I would talk to Kaisa about my ideas and very quickly she would present segments that were fantastic, that I could easily develop with her.

Collaborating with Kaisa was a highlight of directing the

Nova Scotia episode of BLK: An Origin Story. 

It was also very successful as I won a best directing CSA for that work.

Her calmness, attention to beautiful details and also

being excellent at structure makes her one of best editors I have worked with."
