I have been a professional editor for seven years and have a full understanding of the fundamental processes and delivery of video editing. During the initial stages of my career, I received direct training in production and postproduction from the BBC and ITV, working on a number of broadcast campaigns. Since this training, I have worked as a freelancer in the media industry, undertaking roles in broadcast, commercial and art media. I have been based in Manchester, with periods of contractual work in London and abroad, such as my Editor role with London’s leading property marketing company, Ehouse and a recent production and editing role on a documentary feature film, Rising Silence.
I have superb knowledge and practical experience in editing with the following software packages: Abobe premiere, Avid, and Final Cut Pro. I have significant experience in editing interviews, vox pops and online content. For example, in 2015 I worked for Global TV, as an onsite editor on coverage of a Party Conference. The work involved a fast turnaround and the ability to be meticulous, working under pressure to get the footage edited and online each day of the conference.
I have substantial experience in editing short films, trailers, idents, promos, music videos, documentaries, Contemporary dance videos, theatre documentation, director and actor showreels, online content for education courses and editing live events, e.g. shows and performances that have included live music, theatre, choreography, outdoor performance and installation. I am able to offer a wealth of practice in various content, subject matter, software packages and client needs. In addition, I have trained in sound with ITV and completed instruction in sound syncing, multi-cam editing, and offline formation, in addition to conforming for online editing. I can create titles and templates using after effects, which can be dropped into the edit timeline of a project. In addition, I am currently completing 360 stitching training, which will bring new innovation and thinking to any online content, video content or art projects.
