Ian Baigent – Editor

Who is Ian Baigent?

Calm and creative. Someone who cares about his work.

How did your career path develop?

I moved to London to study music and then fell into the world of music videos providing music playback for artists to lip-sync. The company I worked for had a Media 100 which I would tinker with. I immediately fell in love with editing, saved up six months worth of rent and declared myself an editor.

What do you consider your greatest achievement/s so far?

Being a father, becoming an editor and still managing to record and play music.

Any projects you are most proud of and why?

A 3D Peter Gabriel concert I edited in 2011. Peter Gabriel came to the edit suite to view the first cut and during one of the songs he began to sing harmonies. His voice filled the room and it made the hairs on my neck stand up… such an amazing voice.

Trust you instincts. Be a nice person to be in a room with for 10 hours a day. Get used to criticism and making mistakes, no one likes a grumpy editor.
