PROFILE

A fast and creative editor with a strong background in broadcast, Sam is hard working, a team player and will always go the extra mile to meet deadlines for delivery.

Sam is set up to work remotely and has the latest version of Avid on laptop with dual monitors and speakers.

He is used to fast turnaround editing and has a strong sense of storytelling coupled with an eye for detail. Capable of working unsupervised (but likes company too), Sam is used to tight deadlines & always looking to push himself in all aspects of post production.

Technically minded, confident, friendly & reliable, he would be a great asset to your team.
