Martin McEwan

Editor

PROFILE

Martin is a versatile, hard-working editor who relishes taking on new challenges. He enjoys taking part in the discussions that occur in the edit suite & working alongside producers & directors in order to produce the best end result possible. He is equally happy working on his own & organising his own time in order to meet deadlines.

Whatever production he is working on, Martin believes that editing is about finding the story you want to tell & figuring out how best to tell it. He is a technically minded editor, which can be invaluable in the fast moving technological world of post production. He is experienced in editing on both Avid Media Composer and Adobe Premiere Pro, and is set up to work from home, either on his own Avid certified machine, or remotely via a 1Gbps internet connection.
