GARY ROACH (Co-Editor) has worked with Clint Eastwood since 1996. Beginning as an apprentice on Absolute Power, Roach quickly moved up to assistant editor on Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil. Fitting comfortably into Eastwood’s small, efficient editing crew, Roach continued as an assistant editor on True Crime, Space Cowboys, Blood Work, Mystic River, Million Dollar Baby and Flags of our Fathers. In between productions for Malpaso, Roach found time to work as an assistant editor on Catwoman for Warner Bros. Roach received his first co-editor credit on the Eastwood-directed Piano Blues, a segment of The Blues documentary series produced by Martin Scorsese.
Roach has continued his work on documentaries, most recently co-editing a film about Tony Bennett called The Music Never Ends. Academy Award®-nominated Letters From Iwo Jima was Roach’s first editor credit, which he shared with longtime Eastwood collaborator Joel Cox. With the directorial debut of Alison Eastwood’s Rails & Ties, Roach received his first sole editor credit.
