Freelance Video Editing

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 a background in sound I produce excellent mixes or good layups for the dub and carry iZotope RX 9 noise sweetening software to rescue dirty audio.

As an offline editor I’m very experienced in multi-camera productions, fast stitches, reality, entertainment, comedy and every combination of the above.

With production/direction experience I’m also available for high quality preditor/educer work.

Video and film conversions:

While Covid-19 kept me away from editing TV programmes I set up a fcility to do video conversions of legacy (ie old) formats like VHS, mini-DV, DVDs and even 8mm film onto a file for viewing on new devices. I am continuing to do this so please get in touch and read more on this page.

Time lapse bridges the gap between video and stills and I have an large stock collection of London time lapse clips that can be viewed at London Timelapse and downloaded from Shutterstock and Pond 5. Material from Belfast, Birmingham, Durham and Bath also available.
