Anita S. Editor (offline).
After falling in love with editing when cutting films at University Anita fast became a hungry yet smiley addition to the world of post-production. Very quick to work out a strong narrative structure, she is especially suited to character driven short-form and long form documentaries, but also relishes the opportunity to work on commercials and promos. She is lucky enough to find her work as fun and absorbing as her passion for photography, a past-time that has allowed her to develop a great love for visual language and a deeper understanding of the philosophy underpinning the medium. Being a fan of yoga also definitely impacts on her work. Standing on her head (headstand), or flying like a bird (crow pose) weirdly can bring a calm and new perspective to any edit.
Archival footage and personal testimonials chart the early years of George Harrison’s film company, Handmade Films, that accidentally produced cult classics such as Life of Brian, Time Bandits, Withnail & I and Mona Lisa.

Soho Editors played a massive role in the success of Channel Five's recent postproduction build project.
Soho Editors always provide us with high-calibre, enthusiastic graphic designers - often at extremely short notice.
Ever since I signed for Soho Editors 3 years ago I’ve had nothing but positive things to say about them, from the quality of work that they get me to how the whole team are as people. The team really take care of you, and although it’s a massive agency they really have a personal touch and make you feel comfortable with every aspect of what each job entails.
You also really believe that they care about you individually, I remember telling Emma that I loved Football and the next week she’d got me on a Nike football film which I was buzzing about. I think it’s those personal touches that really make them the best.
I can’t recommend them enough. I hope I’m with them for many years to come.
