Simon has many years of experience as an editor in long form factual television, currently focusing on documentary and specialist factual programmes. His experience means he is a well-organised, unflustered, easy to work with safe pair of hands. He is regularly praised for his speed and dexterity; willingness to ‘mine’ the rushes; and a light touch and elegant, non-intrusive editing style. He enjoys working in partnership with the director or edit producer to shape the narrative and is also comfortable to work independently. Simon also regularly works from home on his own system or by remoting in.
‘During his time at MSP, Simon distinguished himself in many ways. His work was fast, intelligent and full of flair. He took charge of complicated edits, sometimes with the most minimal of supervision, and he turned difficult half-baked assemblies into truly impressive finished films in a remarkably short space of time. He was unfailingly positive and collegiate despite the many pressures of remote working, and the ticking clock of a very tight schedule. It’s no exaggeration to say that he will be the first person we hire when we get another series.’
Phil Craig, Creative Director – MSP TV
