My name is Kaisa Pitsi. I'm a freelance film editor with over 10 years of experience.


I’ve built my career in Europe as well as in Canada, working with many film-makers around the world, editing for television, branded campaigns and seeing the post-production process from creating the dailies, crafting a story to the finishing touches and output. I work fast and have a very good concentration and attention to detail.

My previous projects include many documentaries, tv series. 

I have worked on CBC's Nature of Things doc series Wild Canadian Year, a theatrical documentary Stay Awhile that premiered at Hot Docs’ 15, Discovery Channel's limited series Make It to the Moon.


My clients include CAMH, Canada Post, Rethink Breast Cancer, Loblaws. I've also edited docs and tv-series for broadcasters like CBC, CTV, Discovery Channel, Smithsonian, Zoomer Media, W Network, Superchannel.


I love to work in a collaborative environment and bounce ideas off each other.

My passion is crafting the story, I have a very good eye for design, detail, emotion and music.


I admire everyday heroes around us. My interests are arts, social justice, our environment, mental health, music, history and empowering underrepresented voices.

I would love to bring all my experience in the long-format editing and apply it to your project. I love learning, changing opinions and broadening views.
