Nigel W. Editor (Offline / Online).
Nigel throws himself whole heartedly into whatever project he is working on; though he has fifteen years of experience and is an award winning editor, he never gets complacent and is always pushing himself to make each job better than the last. Over the years he has amassed television credits for all major broadcasters, and knows how to target a film for a particular time slot or audience. He has also developed strong storytelling skills and has a good grasp of narratives.
During his career he has cut some of the toughest subject matters, and through the nature of this work is also very aware of editorial policy and broadcast compliance issues. But its not all dark and heavy, he has also worked on a wealth of entertainment and current affairs programmes that present their own different challenges. Nigel originally trained as a photographer so he retains that precision and attention to detail into the way he presents his editing work. Visually he wants everything

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.
