video editor

Hello

I'm Sion, a video editor with an instinct for narrative cutting. who specialises in Avid Media Composer. with extensive online editing experience. based in Manchester, UK.

My work as an editor generally falls into two camps - I'm invested in pursuing a career as a narrative editor, which is to work on scripted productions such as TV drama and film. I've worked in this capacity more and more over the last few years, adding children's dramas and short film credits to my CV, and continually developing my own methodical, fast and instinctive approach to storytelling.

I'm also an experienced online editor; a role that allows me to be part of broad variety of production types, and can cover anything from colour grading to vfx to file-encoding and delivery; essentially, the finishing stages of a post-production workflow.

My work

You're only as good as your last job, or so the saying goes. I've been lucky to work on a variety of different types of programming, especially as an online editor. Below are some favourite examples that I've worked on in either capacity.

The Dumping Ground | CBBC Drama

prod. Emma Bodger, Gert Thomas, exec. Jonathan Phillips

Offline editor | 4×30’ (Series 8 Eps 5-8) | dir. Sean Glynn

Offline editor | 1×30’ (Series 7 Ep18) | dir. Hildegard Ryan

Assistant editor | 17×30’ (Series 7)

Online editor | 60×30’ (Series 4, 5 & 6)

The Dumping Ground is an award-winning CBBC Drama and spin-off to the Tracy Beaker series' that aired many years ago. I've been involved with show for several years, starting off as the onliner in the second half of S4, before moving into the offline for S7 where I assisted and eventually cut my first episode. It's been a privilage to have a great working relationship with this production, one which will hopefully continue into ensuing series of this brilliant show.
