An intuitive storyteller and experienced editor, Ed has worked on HETV and feature films commissioned by Amazon, AMC, Netflix, Channel 4, the BFI, Creative England and SKY.
Ed obtained an MA in Editing from the National Film and Television School and has since broadened his knowledge of editing whilst working alongside the award winning editors Lucien Clayton (DERRY GIRLS, PEEP SHOW) and Nigel Williams (THE OFFICE).
He was an Assembly Editor on Channel 4's final season of DERRY GIRLS and the Amazon Studios / Parkes Macdonald historical comedy series MY LADY JANE, featuring Rob Brydon.
His Additonal Editor credits include the Catherine Tate NETFLIX comedy series HARD CELL and the SKY feature film BREAKING POINT.
" Ed has assisted me on numerous shows over the last few years and in that time stepped up to Assembly Editor and Additional Editor - assembling scenes during the shoot and editing alongside directors, producers and showrunners in the fine cut.
His assembled scenes on DERRY GIRLS showed great taste in performance selection with intuitive cutting rhythm for broadcast comedy. He is as comfortable with dialogue scenes as he is with big set pieces and
works fast with multi-camera coverage - recently showing me a wonderful first cut of a dramatic end wedding sequence in MY LADY JANE - that hit every story beat and was assembled from hours of footage to
Ed relishes the fast-paced schedule of HETV, taking notes from execs with openness and ease and executing changes swiftly. His good humour, sensitivity and initiative have always made the edit a happy one.”
