My Story


Emily Tolan is a film editor currently based out of Chicago, IL.


Grew up in Lancaster, Pennsylvania - the land of whoopie pies, Turkey Hill (best ice cream ever) and starry night skies. Summertime is the best with sparklers and fireflies.

Went to college at Savannah College of Art & Design (SCAD) in Savannah, Georgia. The city is filled with Spanish Moss, charm, and porch chillin' (not to mention bug bites). Majored in Film & Television with a Cinema Studies minor.

Currently in Chicago where the winters are long and the summers are short. Nothing like a classic Chicago deep dish pizza, buildings on buildings reaching to the sky or the cheers from Wrigley Field.

She has dabbled in experimental, commercial, documentary, and narrative. Currently works at Cutters.
