Editor

CV Email

James is an editor with experience across a multitude of genres, but with a particular interest and aptitude for factual and documentary. A self starter, he  quickly worked his way up from runner, through the machine room and into editing.

A self confessed tech nerd, he is a fast, accurate and creative editor with a sound technical knowledge. He has gained a strong understanding of every aspect of the post production workflow, from ingest to delivery, in both tape based and tapeless systems. Plus his background in music production means that your soundtrack will always be thoughtfully selected and skillfully crafted to make your edit come to life.

Proficient in Avid Media Composer, DaVinci Resolve and Adobe Photoshop, James is able to quickly grasp a subject and form a coherent narrative, presenting it with a visual flair that ensures all his projects are easy to understand and easy on the eye.

Always interested in finding new projects to be involved in, James derives a huge feeling of satisfaction from converting a client’s vision into reality. His confident and loquacious personality allow him to get on with anyone he works with and if you have to spend more than 10 hours in an edit suite with him, he might even make you laugh.

Recent clients include ITV, BBC, Channel 5, ITN Productions and Nine Lives Media.
