John M. Editor (Offline / Online), Colourist.

John believes an obsession with attention to detail and 100% absolute dedication to seeing a project through from the initial concept are the fundamentals to working in post-production. After teaching himself Premiere, AFX & Photoshop at Film School, he was able to quickly progress from runner to editor in no time at all. Accomplished as a short-form offline editor, particularly and unusually enjoying editing interviews, he is also an onliner, grader and has worked on various long-form projects, including his personal highlight: “Pirates of Somalia.” Always quick to identify and offer ideas that harmonise with the vision of the director, he is able to deliver a final picture along with a sound mix and graphics to give the piece the edge that will make it unique.

Lucky enough to have a hobby as a job, in his spare moments, if he’s not learning Spanish he’ll be juggling his time around his three boys or (otherwise known as) his “new hobbies”.
