John Roberts joined the School of Filmmaking faculty in January 2016, teaching editing and sound design. His editing credits include series and television movies on Netflix, FOX, ABC, VH1 and the History Channel. In addition to UNCW, Roberts studied in UNCSA's Film School. 

Johnney Roberts has an unmatched enthusiasm for picture editing, so much so that I doubt there's a single student who hasn't left his class at some point considering becoming an editor. Not only does his excellent teaching style inspire a love and interest for his subject, he expresses a genuine care about the well-being of his students.
