David T.

David T. Editor (offline).

David is an experienced factual and documentary editor, with a knack for finding the heart of a story and bringing it to life. His work has been IDA-nominated and Grierson-shortlisted. He is easy to work with, loves to collaborate, and can craft a rough cut at a blistering pace.

David studied story and structure as a post-grad at the NFTS, which comes in handy for fixing narrative issues, and he’s got a keen sense of how to use timing and rhythm to create emotion, jeopardy and comedy.

As well as years of TV experience, he has also cut promos for (among many others) Sainsbury’s, Microsoft, Cadbury’s, Virgin Atlantic and The Body Shop.
