About Paul


See my current CV HERE


I learnt my craft working as a staff editor at three post production facilities across the North of England culminating in 11 years as senior editor at the largest outside London. In 2012 I went freelance and now work for various facilities and broadcasters in the North. I bring a wealth of experience in editorial, craft and finishing to every project with an in-depth knowledge of Avid editing systems. Lightning fast but thorough with a creative eye for detail I am at home at any stage of the edit from offline through to online.


In offline my vast experience of finishing in Avid Symphony enables me to solve editorial problems through subtle use of effects to save you time in the finishing suite. I am also very comfortable liaising with dubbing mixers, vfx artists and colourists to help you find the best workflow solution for your project.


I am at home cutting a multicamera studio show, 5 minute factual feature or grading a self shot documentary. A fast, safe pair of hands, I love working with music and pride myself on my attention to detail in everything from ensuring a guide vo is clear and concise to spelling every contributor’s name correctly on screen.
