Anthony Willis Editor (Offline / Online).

Anthony loves telling stories. During his career in post-production he has edited programmes and films within multiple established mediums; documentary, narrative drama, television commercials, music videos, educational films, news & magazine TV shows etc.

His talents and knowledge as an editor and film maker have grown stronger in the course of his career, but it is his personality and communication skills that give him such confidence.

Anthony pursues suitably stylised and efficient story telling, whatever the idiom. He is also experienced and confident in leading post-production teams through large and daunting schedules and has extensive knowledge of film / television production processes and technical legalities.
