About Colin

  • Share profile:
     I'm an experienced and creative editor, recent projects include researching and cutting mood films for major brands and agencies (via the company Edit Monkey http://www.edit-monkey.com/ ) and shooting and editing a series of half hour documentaries about the painter Gerhard Richter. I have an excellent eye for a story and have consistently proven myself capable of working to tight deadlines without compromising on quality.
