Damian T. Editor (Offline / Online).
Storytelling is Damian’s world. If he’s not editing narrative driven promos, trailers, documentaries or short films, he is immersing himself within the world of literature and screenwriting. Producing and developing scripts on the side while also directing his own short films has enabled him to capture what it means to create and structure a story. This was best demonstrated when he took the lead on a project for the Royal Albert Hall; editing together a multi-camera shoot with archive and interviews from 60 hours of rushes to construct a ninety minute feature documentary. His studiousness and generosity have secured loyalty from high profile clients such as: Sky, Viasat, Disney, MGM, Cartoon Network and TCM. Treating every job with equal commitment and energy, Damian’s ultimate aim is to make sure a good story is told.

Damian T.'s Software Skills
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.
