Curriculum Vitae  

 

A freelance broadcast video editor for… well a bloody long time, I have worked on just about every genre on TV.

As an online editor I have made shows for every major UK broadcaster and many of the minor ones. Unusually, I quite enjoy doing all those fiddly online bits like blurring, captioning and fixing Harding failures (“enjoy” probably the wrong word here). Happy to grade within Avid (Symphony option preferably) and with DaVinci Resolve for more problematic corrections.

As an offline editor I am very experienced in multi-camera productions, particularly quiz and game shows.

I have a love of good audio and can create complex sound mixes (or just really nice simple ones) within Avid and can fix problems using iZotope RX6 sound repair (travels with me).

With a background in sound post production my cuts are welcomed in both the online and sound dub, saving time at every stage. Good at cutting music (ex-musician), insert VTs and story-telling.

I’m very used to working under time pressure (lots of sports news experience) and playing a leading editor roll in fast turnaround productions like Vlogglebox, Pride of Britain and the BAFTAs.

Highly experienced in the use of Avid Interplay, confident on Adobe Premiere, After Effects and DaVinci Resolve (editing and grading) I’m an extremely experienced and reliable editor. I also have my own home based suite for remote editing.
