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.

Paddy is a highly experienced Avid Offline Editor.
''Just wanted to pass on our thanks to Paddy. He's done a fantastic job over the past couple of weeks and all his hard work is very much appreciated. It's been an intense few weeks and he very much rose to the challenge - I hope we get the opportunity to work with him again and would be happy to recommend him.''
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.
