  Summary  

Jamie Selkirk is a film editor and producer who has worked primarily in New Zealand. He is particularly noted for his work on the The Lord of the Rings film trilogy, which he co-produced with Peter Jackson. He received the Academy Award for Best Film Editing for the last film of the trilogy, The Return of the King .

He began his work in the entertainment industry with the New Zealand Broadcasting Company. He moved to editorial as a trainee editor and began cutting newsreels, current affairs, documentaries, and dramas.

Jamie Selkirk has had a longstanding, notable collaboration with the director Peter Jackson. He worked as the editor, sound editor, and postproduction supervisor for Bad Taste, Meet the Feebles, and Heavenly Creatures. Selkirk was both associate producer and editor for Jackson's Braindead in 1992, and became a full producer on The Frighteners.

Jackson and Selkirk are examples of New Zealand filmmakers who chose to remain in New Zealand following international recognition for their work.

In addition to his work as a producer on the Lord of the Rings Trilogy, Selkirk worked as the supervising editor for the first two episodes The Fellowship of the Ring and The Two Towers. John Gilbert and Michael Horton were nominated for the Academy Award for Best Film Editing for those episodes. Selkirk had once thought he would edit all three episodes himself; in the end, he edited only the third episode. In an interview Daniel Restuccio, he commented wryly, "I always liked that script best."

Selkirk has been elected as a member of the American Cinema Editors.
