Hard Cut

Steve Williams - RTS Award Winning, Professional, Creative and Versatile Film Editor based in London, with over 12 years experience working for all 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.

About



I am a professional video editor with over 12 years experience delivering high profile, quality television across all of the major UK networks. After working for 10 years as a staff editor for the BBC, I am now self employed and am loving the freedom and challenges of running my own company. I have an almost unhealthy obsession and pride in my work and feel the creativity and enthusiasm I can offer, adds a polish and quality to every project I undertake.

Skills

I am fully conversant in Avid in all of its forms, Final Cut Pro, Photoshop and Digital Rostrum.

I have experience working across a wide range of programmes, from single camera actuality, archive documentaries, live events and multi-camera studio programmes, and I bring the same level of knowledge and commitment to every project I work on. I have a strong sense of narrative and work both offline and online, short and long form on projects, and in fast turn-around highly pressured environments, often on location, cutting to air. I have worked on some of the BBC's highest profile output and a particular highlights of my career were being chosen as one of three editors to cut the Eddie Butler review of the London 2012 Olympic Games that went out as part of the Closing Ceremony to some 27 Million viewers. I recently also won an RTS Craft Editing Award as part of the small editing team for Sports Personality of the Year 2013.

My particular passions are working with multi-layered video effects, creative and complex sound editing and discovering and developing narrative lines. I have also received intensive BBC technical training and have excellent troubleshooting skills.

I firmly believe that regardless of what brand of buttons you press, the most important skills an editor can bring to a project are a fresh creative viewpoint, a keen eye for detail, an enthusiastic, hard working attitude, a decent conversation and the ability to make a cup of tea in a crisis.

Interests

I'm a tall, chatty, Marmite eating, rugby loving, Welshman with an huge passion for Sport, TV dramas, documentary films, trashy horror and sci-fi films (well just about all types of films, apart from anything by Michael Bay). I love a huge variety of music, but have a particular soft spot for collecting punk and soul Vinyls. I've been a vicar at a wedding (not legal), run the London marathon in a shower, traveled in some amazing countries, and would like to think i'm a generally pleasant person to sit with for 12 hours in a dark, cold room.
