Ash Johnstone

Edit Assistant


Ash started in the industry in 2007 working as an AVID assistant for The London Studios/ITV. He has become an experienced, versatile media professional, with the ability to anticipate client needs. His extensive knowledge both creatively and logically honed not only at ITV but also at Azimuth Post Production, Timeline TV and Directors Cut Films.

As Timeline TV’s Edit Lead, Ash was part of the Media Management team responsible for maintaining current, and developing new, workflows for the Avid and Adobe based edits. He was also heavily involved in the introduction and development of BT Sport’s 4K UHD Post-Production workflow, integrating Da Vinci Resolve and Adobe’s Post-Production tools.

Ash would be an asset to any team.
