Life and Career[edit]

Hamilton started editing at the age of seventeen getting inspired by the names on the film credit. He took up a psychology degree at University College London before applying to various film schools around the UK. Hamilton then got a job at a small post-production company which led him to work as an editor on Geneviève Jolliffe's Urban Ghost Story. His big break would come when he worked on Mean Machine which future collaborator Matthew Vaughn produced. The duo would later go on to work on subsequent films which includes Kick-Ass, X-Men: First Class and the Kingsman films. As a quote to young editors, Hamilton said "Edit as much you can because you only get better by doing it."[3]

In 2015, Hamilton edited Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation, the 5th entry in the Mission Impossible film series directed by Christopher McQuarrie. He later reunited with McQuarrie on the recent Mission: Impossible – Fallout which gave him an HPA nomination for Outstanding Editing in a Feature Film.[4]
