I’m an Editor working mainly in Features, Documentaries and Shorts. I’ve cut for the BBC, Channel 4, Discovery, Sony, Disney and lots of companies who are good but you’ve probably not heard of.
My most recent film “The Pugilist” has been nominated for the ‘Michael Powell Best British Film Award’ at the 71st Edinburgh Film Festival. My first feature film “Arthur and Merlin” (can you guess what it’s about?) premiered at the BFI Southbank in London, and was in the top 5 on iTunes when released. Since then i’ve cut several features currently being distributed around the world.
I’ve cut shorts funded by the BFI, Creative England & Film London which have screened at Festivals like Berlinale, New York Film Festival, Encounters, Raindance and lots of lovely ones you might not have heard of. i’ve also cut hundreds of hours of promo content for companies like Sony, Panasonic, Red Bull and Disney It’s been a long slog. Probably why my hair is receding.
My dad used to read classic novels to me to get me to sleep, so I have a love of storytelling hardwired into my brain. At 10 i was introduced to the visceral power of cinema by Jurassic Park (I left the cinema in fear after 30mins and couldn’t come back in when i heard the screaming). I grew up mostly watching silly comedy, sci-fi and melodramas, so I count “Star Trek 2: The Wrath of Khan” as a masterpiece of cinematic expression, along with “The Godfather” and “Airplane!”. When i’m not working I love going to see stand up comedy and music gigs, listening to comedy podcasts, and trying to do yoga to reduce my blubber.
