Dan R. Editor (offline).
After gaining a degree in Physics the world of science just wasn’t enticing enough for Dan, so when a tape op position came up on Des Lynham’s “How Do They Do That?” it seemed like the ideal first job. It appears he made the right choice as Dan has since then he has become a vastly experienced offline and online editor. Working in television from the off and being constantly in demand, Dan has racked up some brilliant credits within documentary, entertainment, reality and cookery.

Dan R.'s Software Skills
Dan Raymond is not just a high quality user of edit technology who can stitch together a cool, great looking and well paced sequence, he is also very strong editorially when needed and pretty good at coming up with a witty line of commentary too. He is also hard working, diligent and confident in the suite, he never panics and manages to deliver everything you need in the time allotted. At no point did I need to resort to overtime with Dan as he delivered everything I asked and more. In a nutshell I would work with him again without reservation.
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.
