Profile

Since November 2006 Todd's been a freelance editor operating Avid's and Premiere Pro. He's completed projects for delivery to the main UK terrestrial channels as well as for global transmission.

The short-form projects he's undertaken have demanded a good knowledge of After Effects and/or layering in the NLE for compositing graphical elements. On documentaries and Panorama, Todd had to apply a sympathetic and understanding editorial style. 

He feels privileged to have worked on the ‘Banaz’ and ‘White Right: Meeting The Enemy’ films for ITV which have both won International Emmy awards for best current affairs documentaries.

Todd can also work remotely with the following kit and software: Avid and Premier Pro on Mac (Mac is my preferred system), and it can connect relatively easily to USB-C or USB 3.0 drives. He also has Avid on Windows which can connect to USB 3.0 drives.  For both systems he has a Grade 1 monitor and can do broadcast Onlines and even LUFs checking on audio.
