Online editor | 6×50’ (Series 2)
The Mill was a period drama on Channel 4 about the lives of factory workers at a textile mill in the 1830s. It was one of the first series I've ever onlined, ironic as it's potentially the most high-profile productions my name's ever been attached to! Being filmed in the real-life Quarry Bank Mill, it came with it an awful lot of paint-out work to hide modern accessories and restore the site to it's former nature.
My work as an editor generally falls into two camps; I'm focussed on pursuing a career as a long-form narrative editor, which is to work on scripted productions such as TV drama and film. I've worked in this field more and more over the last few years, continually developing my own methodical, fast and instinctive approach to storytelling.
I'm also an experienced online editor, a role that gets me involved with a variety of different types of productions, and can cover anything from colour grading to vfx to file-encoding and delivery - essentially, the finishing stages of a post-production workflow.
