Roger Dacier



Roger has over 30 years experience as both an offline and finishing editor of many different genres of primetime (& not to mention award winning) factual & entertainment programmes in a calm & cheerful cutting room even under pressure.

He is strong at simplifying complex ideas; assessing rushes and developing stories, setting the right tone, working with character & performance, using footage from single & multi-cam shoots, archive, covert, graphics, CGI, audio actuality, voice-over and music.
