Mary Taylor DeChambres
Mary Taylor DeChambres, Emmy® Award winner for Outstanding Picture Editing for Reality Programming taught public school visual arts for 10 years in Texas before transitioning into television editing at USC. She worked her way up at Bunim-Murray when reality television had first begun growing at a crazy fast pace. Having received rave reviews for both her work and workmanship at her first job, The Real World: Chicago, she was asked back for The Real World: Las Vegas and continued being mentored up the editing chain. Once on her own, working on Newlyweds, Nick and Jessica for all four seasons gave her the tools and knowledge to work directly with celebrities like Jennifer Lopez on Dancelife and Oscar® winners Three 6 Mafia on Adventures in Hollyhood. Matched Cut: MTV’s Rob and Big, E!’s Denise Richards, It’s Complicated and all three seasons of VH1's Tool Academy. All of this has kept producers calling but the opportunity of a lifetime was working on Oprah Winfrey’s The Big Give and Project Runway: Season 5 that led to her 2009 Emmy® Award win for Outstanding Picture Editing for Reality Programming.
