Dana Elise Glauberman (born December 11, 1968) is an American film editor.

Early life and education[edit]

Glauberman was born on December 11, 1968 in Los Angeles County, California.[1] As a child, she enjoyed jigsaw puzzles.[2] She attended the University of California, Santa Barbara originally interested in photography, but took a film production class which introduced her to film editing, a career she considers very similar to her childhood jigsaw puzzles.[2] She graduated with a B.A. in film studies in December 1990.[3][4]


Glauberman's first industry job was as a production assistant with Hearst Entertainment.[2] She worked under Arthur Schmidt, Sheldon Kahn, and Wendy Greene-Bricmont, while gaining experience.[2] She worked primarily in television throughout the 1990s, editing for Northern Exposure, Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman and Love Boat: The Next Wave.[2][5]

While assisting Sheldon Kahn with film projects by Ivan Reitman, Glauberman was in the right place at the right time and became acquainted with Jason Reitman, Ivan's son.[3] Jason Reitman subsequently asked her to edit his first feature film, Thank You for Smoking, after Glauberman had helped him previously.[3][2][6] Thank You for Smoking' was very well received, and Glauberman's editing was nominated for an American Cinema Editors Eddie Award.[4] She was nominated for this award again through her work on Reitman's next film, Juno.[2]

Glauberman's third feature with Reitman, Up in the Air, marked the first time she worked with high-definition.[7] She received her third Eddie nomination for her work on the film.[8]

Honors and awards[edit]

In addition to her Eddie Award nominations, Glauberman has won two awards: the 2009 Hamilton Behind the Camera Awards' Editor of the Year for Up in the Air and the 2009 Hollywood Film Festival's Hollywood Editor Award.[3][9][10] Glauberman was voted in as a member of the American Cinema Editors.[11]

Personal life[edit]

Glauberman resides in Los Angeles, California.[12]
