Richard Lester

Editor Profile

An award winning editor with a career spanning over 13 years, who has developed a strong sense for shaping narrative. Richard has a driving passion for story and has thrived in multiple genres, winning acclaim for character driven observational documentaries and action packed factual entertainment shows in addition to scripted comedy shorts and VR multi-sensual experiences. His hunger for the medium has led to working in a variety of environments whether cutting at high seas attached to a suite with bungie ropes, in the stands of a football stadium or a traditional edit suite. He’s a great collaborator who loves to contribute ideas but also has patience and discipline to work independently.

‘It was a true pleasure having Richard edit on our latest series. Despite all of the many problems of working in lockdown he produced some absolutely first class work for MSP. He’s got a natural sense of style, pace and emotion and everything he touched looked like it cost a lot more to make than it actually did! We’d welcome him back anytime.’

Phil Craig, Creative Director – MSPTV
