Richard Lester

Editor Profile

Richard is an award-winning editor with multiple Emmy nominations in a career spanning over 14 years and has developed a strong sense for shaping narrative. He 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.’
