Mellissa L. Editor (offline).
Proficient in Avid, Premiere Pro and FCP 7, Mellissa is a highly organised and dedicated editor, with an acute eye and sharp ear that can help elevate a project to the highest calibre. She is most skilled in short-form, trailer/promo and commercial work, but is also experienced in longer forms of editing and is looking to be a part of more feature and TV series length productions.
With a natural instinct for storytelling, Mellissa is an award-winning editor that has shown creativity and imagination in her work on viral campaigns for films like Academy Award-winning documentary, ‘Amy’ and high profile clients such as HBO, Netflix and Universal.
Having always had a passion for narratives, she is fascinated in how a story can have the ability to resonate within an audience; to evoke emotion, inspiration and even influence change. It is her ambition to be a part of more projects that achieve these connections.

Mellissa L.'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.
