Jonny Lee Mills – Editor
Who is Jonny Mills?
I’m an enthusiastic and ambitious editor with a big drive to work regularly on intelligent prime-time television and features.
How did your career path develop?
As a kid I used to edit sport montages and put them on YouTube. Over the years I’ve developed more of a passion for editing, whilst studying at Cambridge School of Art.
I was lucky enough to start editing professionally in London, where I’ve learned the trade of working on all different type of edits and collaborating with directors and clients to confidently produce quality work to tight deadlines.
What do you consider your greatest achievement/s so far?
I’m extremely proud to regularly work on short films and I’ve edited a vast amount in varied genres such as science fiction, comedy, horror and drama. I wouldn’t have been able to do this if it wasn’t for the contacts I’ve made at the places where I’ve worked around London.
Any projects you are most proud of and why?
I was very grateful to work as lead editor on EE’s YouTube footballing web-series The Wembley Cup.
The show had YouTubers doing challenges against each other in every episode to win football legends to be in their team and compete at Wembley Stadium. It was a really fun project to work on and a very rewarding one as it gained over 50 million views.
I also had the chance to online-edit an independent feature film called Hinterland. It did incredibly well in festivals around the world, with Raindance calling it “a masterpiece” and The Independent writing that it was bound to “take the independent film world by storm“.

Take criticism on board. You could make the best edit that everyone loves but the client is always right.
