Celebrity Ex in the City

Whizz Kid Entertainment for MTV

Editor: Amy Hadfield

MTV’s brand new spin-off off to Ex on the Beach called Celeb Ex in the City will be premiered on Tuesday 8th Dec. Amy Hadfield worked on the series. Amy said it was a fun show to edit full of laughs and the classic ex on the beach drama.

Each episode of the MTV show will see two single famous faces go on a date at a central London restaurant, but just when they start getting comfortable, they’ll be interrupted by one of their notorious exes. If that wasn’t awkward enough, the celebrities will have to decide whether to go a second date with their original blind date or their ex.

Celebrity Ex on the Beach stars Calum Best and Michael Griffiths are returning, but they’ll be joined by a who’s who of reality TV legends like Love Island stars Amy Hart and Megan Barton-Hanson and Big Brother icon Aisleyne Horgan-Wallace.

This may have to be our new guilty pleasure!

Celeb Ex in the City will be premiered on Tuesday 8th Dec on MTV.

The Wine Show

Editors: Dave Berezai, Jonnie Case and Gwyn Moxham

Jura Productions for Amazon Prime Video

Need some escapism? Grab your glass of vino and settle in for an evening with a new series of The Wine Show!

Matthew Goode, Matthew Rhys and James Purefoy are joined by Dominic West this season to capture the exciting and extraordinary world of wine in sunny Portugal.

Three Sastusfaction editors worked on the series and it sounds like it was a fun project. Jonnie Case said “it was a joy to edit as it is so well scripted, produced and shot. It was great fun working with a cast of well known UK actors who are happy to allow themselves to be gently educated in the ways of wine”.

Gwyn Moxham found it great working with the team “both the wider team and also our little editor huddle with Dave and Jonnie,  honestly the nicest bunch of people to be entering the weird world of lockdown editing with” He also added  “It was great also to work with footage from the most stunning parts of Portugal, and with such talented actors! A great gig and learned lots about wine, food and Portugal”.

Dave Berezai said “I can honestly say I knew next to nothing about wine before I started on this show. I have since learnt many of the nuances that help create a great bottle of wine. But I have barely scratched the surface. There is so much to know! This was my third season and it was great to work with such a lovely team again.The material was beautifully shot in some truly amazing places around the world. Us editors were given a great deal of autonomy to put our own stamps on things – a challenge which we all relished. And to top it off some top notch wine made it’s way into the edit from time to time. Cheers!”

The Faction ladies are now dreaming of sitting in the sun in Portugal sipping some lovely wine!

The Wine Show season 3 will be launching on Amazon Prime Video Thursday 31st Oct

Double Act for Nat Geo Wild and Disney +

Series Editor: Charlie Webb

31st Oct on Nat Geo Wild

The team here are really looking forward to this one!

World’s Biggest Zoo takes us to North Carolina which is home to the largest zoo in the world. The zoo is spread out over an enormous 2,600 acres, it has thousands of animals living within a diverse range of landscapes. The series gives a behind-the-scenes look at the work it takes to keep the zoo going, particularly in regard to the health and well-being of the animals.

Big congratulations to Charlie Webb, it was his first series editor role!

Charlie chatted to us about his experience on the series and said I really enjoyed working on the show and always enjoy working with the double act team and Alex Wood the Series Producer who was brilliant. It was a  big challenge being my first show as series editor but really pleased with the format and style we came up with. Each episode has a theme throughout which is all tied together at the end of the show, making it feel very filmic. The show has some great moments, both highs and lows, has beautiful photography and has been scored superbly by Matt De Luca at Figure and Groove. I’m really looking forward for people to see it on Nat Geo Wild and Disney +.

The first ep will be aired on 31st Oct on Nat Geo Wild.
