AVID PREMIERE & FCP7

Welcome

Steve & Nicolas

I have been editing for over 15 years, and have worked in the post industry for over 20 years, starting as a runner at a sound design studio (The Tape Gallery) and quickly becoming a sound designer.

I worked in Advertising with some of the top agencies including winning a D&ad silver award for sound design in 1996 on a Kiss FM commercial (Link Below). After working closely with creatives and directors I realised my true passion was in editing pictures rather than sound.

In 1998 I trained at Avid Pinewood, shortly after I joined an editing house called DGW as a junior editor to really learn the craft telling stories in pictures. In 2000 I became in house editor at Tomato Films, in 2001 I started working in TV and became freelance.

With a reputation for being fast as well as creative, I am an editor first but also a strong graphics designer with sound design experience. I have an unique ability to find the perfect soundtrack to a film. I strongly believe 50 percent of all TV and Film is sound!

I am happy working on Avid, Premiere Pro and FCP7 as well as using a host of Adobe applications, including After Effects & Photoshop.
