A freelance broadcast video editor for 30 years, I have edited and graded everything from Brainiac and Changing Rooms to the Weakest Link and Women’s football. Now operating Adobe Premiere as well as Avid Media Composer, I also have detailed knowledge of Avid Interplay systems, media management and file wrangling. I also use After Effects and Photoshop.
Working on many different programmes, in many different genres, I bring something new to any production. With experience as a director and producer I specialise in editing pilots and working on first series. I’m good at doing all those fiddly on-line bits like blurring and captioning and passing Quality Control. Used to working fast and under pressure, my editing is efficient and accurate. Self-motivation, punctuality and the secret of eternal youth are three of the factors that have kept me a freelancer for so long. Suffice to say I’m a very safe pair of hands.
More recently I have been working on location for fast turn-around shows such as Love Island (for US and Australia) and I’m A Celebrity… (Australia), onlining and grading. Between these sport work has kept me busy, but as my CV shows I have worked in just about everything.
With a complete editing and grading suite I’m happy to work remotely on projects.
Full CV is available to view and download here and my editing diary is available here. I can be booked through TOVS agency on 020 7287 6110. For work examples follow this Vimeo link
