VALE - Suresh Ayyar ASE (1957-2016)
One of Australia's most respected picture editors, Suresh Ayyar, passed away this week.
He will be greatly missed by all who knew and worked with him.
Suresh's work as an editor was highly regarded, and his body of work was rewarded with nine nominations for the Australian Film Institute’s (AFI) Best Achievement in Editing Award, winning four times, and in 1995 he received both the feature and non-feature category awards.
Feature films credits include FOOTY LEGENDS, ELEPHANT TALES, PEACHES, CROCODILE HUNTER – COLLISION COURSE, HILDEGARDE, FLOATING LIFE, BAD BOY BUBBY (Grand Jury prize-winner of Venice Film Festival), ALL MEN ARE LIARS and THE INTERVIEW (AFI Best Film Award).
His television credits include the series THE COOKS, DOSSA & JOE, BEASTMASTER, FARSCAPE and the tele feature THE ROAD FROM COORAIN.
Suresh has edited documentaries including the Emmy Award-winning KANGAROOS: FACES IN THE MOB and Gillian Armstrong’s NOT 14 AGAIN, which won the AFI’s Best Documentary Award that year, and the yet to be released IN THE COMPOUND – THE LAST DAYS OF YASSER ARAFAT.
