With over 20 years experience in the TV and Film industry, Joel has worked as an offline & online editor and colourist across many different genres. He is very sociable, upbeat, creative and passionate about delivering high quality content.

Equally comfortable operating alone & managing his own time as being part of a team, Joel is used to working to tight scheduling/broadcast deadlines. He has a strong eye for detail and is fastidious about quality and broadcast standards. He takes an interest in new industry related technology from the cameras to file delivery.

His passion for the industry started from a young age as his childhood was spent on film sets at Pinewood and Shepperton Studios. Joel knew from his early teens this was the career he wanted!

Having been a freelancer since 2001 we are so pleased that Joel chose TOVS as the agency to help look after his career & we are very proud to have him on the books!
