Hard Cut

Steve Williams - Multiple RTS Award Winning, Professional, Creative and Versatile Film Editor and producer based in London, with over 16 years experience working for film and TV including all of the major UK channels including BBC One, BBC Two, Sky 1, Sky Sports, ITV, Channel 4 and Channel 5, delivering high profile quality and polished programming across a wide range of genres.


I am a professional film editor and producer with over 16 years experience (10 as a BBC Staff editor) delivering high profile, quality films and television programmes both domestically and worldwide.

I have a passion for documentary storytelling, a strong sense of narrative and visual ingenuity and never happier than when I'm wading through hours upon hours of film archive looking for little forgotten moments.

I have worked across a host of high-profile projects and a particular highlight of my career has been working on the cinematic feature documentary 'Kaiser' about the life of the conman footballer Carlos Kaiser (to be released 2018), on which I was the Film editor and associate producer.

Other highlights have been being chosen to edit the closing film of the BBC's coverage of the Football World Cup in both 2014 and 2010, and also working as one of three editors to cut the Review of the London 2012 Olympic Games that went out as part of the Closing Ceremony to some 27 Million viewers.


I have won an RTS Craft Editing Award three times, in 2013 and 2015 as part of the small editing team for Sports Personality of the Year and in 2014 I was twice nominated, eventually winning for the BBC World Cup Closing Montage, which garnered critical acclaim, including this from columnist AA Gill (which was incidentally the only nice thing that he ever wrote... about anyone).

"You’ve probably forgotten by now, but the very best bit of the BBC televising of the World Cup was the final five-minute montage of the music and images of Brazilian football. It was just beautifully done, elegiac, but without pretension. Whoever the editor was who got all that together in a tearing hurry, take a bow.
You’ve probably failed to remember that it was the same with the Olympics ― the compilation edits at the end were sublime little bits of television.
Montage is the cutting together of images to make a visual mosaic: it elicits rather than imparts emotion, information or plot. It’s a particular television skill. It was invented by cinema, but it doesn’t really suit the monolithic self-importance of the wide screen. When you see it made with this much skill and thought, it’s like the broadcast version of keepy-uppies."
