Picture Editor Luke Sargent's work has been seen across the UK, US, Europe, and Canada on TV stations such as Disney, BBC, BYUtv, Syfy, APTN, CBC, and TVO. His films have played world class festivals like Cannes, Tenerife,TIFF, Whistler as well as at the Smithsonian Institute. With a solid background in drama, comedy, and documentary, today Luke edits mostly scripted TV and films.


In 2006 Luke began as an assistant editor with doc legends, Banger Films, where he was mentored by A-List editors L. Grootenboer, W. Hallam Martin, and C. Donaldson. In 2012 Luke graduated from the Editor's Film Lab at the Canadian Film Centre (CFC), and soon after began editing indie feature films. In 2015 Luke joined the Director's Guild of Canada (DGC) as Picture Editor, that year cutting 11 episodes of the new TV series, Backstage. Six years later, there's no sign of him slowing down; in 2021 Luke cut 40 episodes of broadcast TV over three separate shows.

An active member of the Toronto post community, Luke has taught sessions at Ryerson and Humber, and written articles for the Canadian Cinema Editors and The Art of the Guillotine. He has also been a jury member in the category of editing, for the prestigious Director's Guild of Canada Awards.


In 2018 Luke directed his first documentary The Love Songs of Oedipus Rex for CBC Short Docs, where he acted in the roles of director, producer, cinematographer and editor.
