Darrin Navarro

Motion Picture Editor

Darrin Navarro is a motion picture editor with an extensive background working in TV and film with credits including The Lovers, The End of the Tour, and Mozart in the Jungle.

During the 1990s and early 2000s, Darrin was an assistant to editor Augie Hess, working primarily on films from award-winning TV and film director and producer William Friedkin. During this period, Darrin also assisted on the Director's Cut and re-release of Friedkin's horror classic, The Exorcist.

Darrin's first feature editing job was the festival circuit drama, Hate Crime. Shortly thereafter, Friedkin asked him to assume the editor's chair for the acclaimed psychological thriller, Bug, which premiered in the Director's Fortnight section at the Cannes Film Festival and came away with the FIPRESCI Prize. Later, Friedkin and Darrin worked together again on the dark comedy, Killer Joe, largely credited with helping to redefine Matthew McConaughey's career.

Darrin has also ventured into the world of streaming episodics, having worked on hit shows including Ballers (HBO) and I Love Dick (Amazon).
