Broadcast editing

A freelance broadcast video editor for over 30 years, Scott Thomas has edited and graded everything from Brainiac and Changing Rooms to the Love Island and I’m A Celebrity. Avid is his weapon of choice and he has detailed knowledge of Avid Interplay systems, media management and file wrangling. Also uses After Effects and Photoshop. He is slightly evangelical about 4K/UHD and 8K timelapses which he shoots in his spare time.

Working on many different programmes, in many different genres, Scott brings something new to any production as well as an attention to dteail [sic] essential to fast turn arround shows such as Love Island. With previous experience as a director and producer he specialises in editing pilots and working on first series.

He is very good at doing all those fiddly on-line bits like blurring and captioning and passing Quality Control. Used to working fast and under pressure, his editing is efficient and accurate. Self-motivation, punctuality and the secret of eternal youth are three of the factors that have kept him a freelancer for so long. Suffice to say he is a very safe pair of hands.

With a complete editing and grading suite Scott is happy to work remotely on projects, or on location (kit not portable). Also a veteran time-lapse photographer specialising in London skylines.

Scott’s full CV is available here and his editing diary is available here and he can be booked through TOVS agency on 020 7287 6110
