Junior Edit Assistant

  • Location: London
  • Career stage: Early
  • Freelancer: Available

I am one of those fresh-faced media grads that made the jump from across the pond to start a media career in the booming epicenter of the UK Media Industries. I have become an established production runner and location assistant and I am finally moving into the editing department after following people around, making a general nuisance of myself since 2018.

Hard to settle on one thing I love:

Editing - challenging conventional narrative storytelling like Alfonso Cuaróns Birdman, Peter Howitts Sliding Doors and everything that Wes Anderson touches, but especially The Grand Budapest Hotel and The Royal Tenenbaums.

Cinematography - I have closely studied Star Wars from when Peter Suschitzky came aboard for the second one and I am a very big fan of Richard Deakins and Emmanuel Lubezki.

Set design - Star Wars designer Norman Reynolds and the work that Major Grant did on The Lord of the Rings, along with Alan Lee and John Howe's concept art.

I also have an unhealthy fixation with JMW Turner, baking, dog behaviourism and professional cycling.

ScreenSkills tests passed.
