John Berri


John Berri’s film career has spanned more than 20 years and included films such as “Terminator Salvation,” ‘The Amazing Spiderman,” and most recently “Logan.” This is his third collaboration with Director James Mangold and his fifth time teaming up with Editor Mike McCusker.  

John’s career in film began when he hightailed himself out of the investment industry and into an Assistant Visual Effects Editor job in ’96 with a new VFX house at the time, Sony Pictures Imageworks. While at Imageworks, he quickly moved up to Visual Effects Editor and worked on numerous films including “Starship Troopers” and “Castaway,” but he knew early on that he wanted to be in the cutting room and at the heart of the storytelling process. Since then, John has worked as a Visual Effects Editor on numerous films such as “The Day After Tomorrow,” “Knight And Day,” and “Captain Americam,” and recently as an Associate Editor on “The Wolverine” and Additional Editor on “Logan.”
