I am a creative video editor based in London with over 8 years of industry experience in both short and long form content; including Feature Film, Documentary, Short Film and Branded Content. I have previously worked at several London studios as both a full time editor and freelancer. I edit in Adobe Premiere Pro and utilise Audition, AfterEffects and DaVinci Resolve for sound, graphics and colour grading respectively as required. My work is always clean and elegant. I'm extremely well organised and I am motivated by a passion for storytelling and creativity, which I bring to every project. I’m an excellent communicator and as comfortable working with producers and directors as I am crafting an edit by myself. For examples of my work please visit my website www.mitchelltolliday.com or vimeo www.vimeo.com/mitchelltolliday Previous clients include BBC, Channel 4, Legal & General, Harpers Bazaar, Levi’s, StartRite, Dazed & Confused, NBC, Facebook and Samsung.
