Nick Webb / Editor / Steve Coogan’s ’50th Birthday VT’
After working on many Baby Cow projects including, the award-winning ‘Alan Partridge: Welcome To The Places Of My Life‘, Nick was asked by Steve Coogan to create a VT for his 50th birthday party, “kind of like if I’d just died and my life was flashing before my eyes” – and even got to attend the celebrations!
Cutting the VT was incredibly high-maintenance, trawling Steve’s entire TV and film career, sifting through hundreds of family photographs, super-8 footage, radio shows, animations, court-hearings and news-reels. Then making sense of it all, creating a narrative and cutting a lifetime down to 7 minutes.
As a huge fan of Steve’s, Nick said it was a huge relief that he loved the result. The VT was also lovingly received at Steve’s party which was attended by the likes of Terry Jones, Stewart Lee, David Walliums and Hugh Grant to name but a few. “I felt deeply privileged not only to be asked to edit the film but also to be invited to such a grand occasion. Here’s to another 50 very funny years”.
