Paddy P.

Paddy P. Editor (offline).

Paddy is a popular Editor amongst our long form clients including factual giants Darlow Smithson, Nutopia and BBC. He comes from a diverse background which also includes a variety of shorter form projects so having experience in both areas allows Paddy to approach all edits with a broader perspective than most long form editors. He also has a good sense of humour which comes in useful on some of the more light hearted / comedic jobs. In recent years he has chosen to focus mainly on broadcast, winning an award for the “Talks with Fumi” documentary series for BBC World at the 2011 Monte Carlo Broadcast Festival.

He is a well organised intuitive operator who is used to disseminating large amounts of footage and weaving a story from it. Having represented Paddy for some time now, he is not only reliable and meticulous, he also has a very kind and thoughtful nature which is exactly what’s needed on any post production team. He enjoys getting stuck in and never shies away from late nights and long hours.
