Currently

Editor

DEADLY Films

Sep 2015
  • London, United Kingdom
  • Full Time
  • Editing and producing branded content, corporate videos and commercials for brands and agencies including MTV, Vauxhall, CNN and Saatchi&Saatchi. Picture editing, motion graphics, grading and sound. I quickly and simultaneously produce platform specific videos to a high standard. I often fine cut at a client's location to give them precise control at the final stage. This has proven very effective. On large projects I oversee composers, animators and colourists. I take pride in bringing together talented people into a post production team.
