Motion Picture Editor. After coming to the conclusion that he wished to work in films, the Los Angeles native attended UCLA from where he attained a bachelor's degree in Advertising Arts and a minor in Theater Arts. Following graduation, he entered the industry apprenticing as an editor at Paramount Studios and advanced to assistant editor, as he acquired experience from such indelible names as Adrienne Fazan "Billie" (1965) and Thomas Stanford "Hell in the Pacific" (1968). Travis' debut as editor with the Jack Smight picture "The Traveling Executioner" (1970) and followed this with the TV-movie "They Call It Murder" (1971) and the John Wayne film "The Cowboys" (1972). Steadier work came on television with episodes of "Roll Out" (1973) and "Harry O" (1974 to 1975). Travis was acknowledged for his work with an Emmy Award for the historic TV-mini series "Roots" (1977) and garnered an Academy Award for his efforts on "Dances with Wolves" (1990). He became associated with the film adaptations of the Tom Clancy political thrillers ""Patriot Games" (1992) and "Clear and Present Danger" (1994). Further credits include "The Sum of All Fears" (2002) and "Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines" (2003). (bio by: C.S.)
