video editor


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 Mill | DSP Drama for CH4

prod. Johnathan Young

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.
