Purcell is a documentary filmmaker and editor based in New York. Purcell's award-winning editorial work has brought many worlds into her edit room, from a piano factory in Ben Niles's NOTE BY NOTE: THE MAKING OF STEINWAY L1037 to the Hollywood stunt set in Amanda Micheli's DOUBLE DARE (PBS's Independent Lens). Most recently, she edited the 2009 Academy Award winning documentary short SMILE PINKIE. She has also edited Gabe Rhodes and Keefe Murren's AUGUST IN THE EMPIRE STATE (Sundance Channel). Purcell assisted on LOCAL NEWS (a five-part series for PBS), AMERICAN MASTERS (PBS) and NEW YORK JUSTICE (A&E).
She has recently directed and edited AD LIB: WILLIAMSBURG UNSCRIPTED for the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation. Before turning to documentary, she produced interactive media, first for The Voyager Company (a partner to The Criterion Collection) and then for Fodor's, one of Random House's internet division.
