Here are a few clips from stuff I've worked on that a) I'm very proud of, and b) I have a copy of!
The Big Quiz : Corrie v Emmerdale (RTS NW Award Winner)
This is part 3 from the RTS North West Award-winning quiz hosted by Stephen Mulhern which I edited at ITV Manchester. The show was awarded Best Entertainment Programme in 2012. I was the only editor on the programme, so I edited all the VT inserts and the studio isos and graphics. Courtesy of ITV.As a follow up, the following year I edited all the VT inserts for Emmerdale Live : The Fallout for ITV2, which also won RTS North West Entertainment Programme of 2013, and a year later I edited The A-Z of World War 1 (a very different but equally engaging programme for BBC Learning) which won Best Education Programme at RTS North West 2014.*technical note - I didn't capture this, so apologies for the odd aspect ratio!
This Girl Can Too!
For International Women's Day 2015, in tribute to Sport England's excellent 'This Girl Can' campaign to get women of all shapes and sizes to take part in sport, BBC Get Inspired commissioned this short film from producer Amanda Barnes featuring BBC TV and radio getting sweaty doing their favourite sports. Camera by Simon Makin, and edit and grade by me. Courtesy of BBC Get Inspired.
Crimefighters : The Vice
This is the series finale clip, where the women we've followed during the series tell us their hopes for the future. It's a heartbreaking end to a series which, whilst always thought-provoking, gave some genuinely funny and gut wrenching moments, in equal measure.
Superb camerawork by Steve Symes, a great dub by Robin Ward, unbelievable access by Rob Jones, and an off and online edit I'm still fiercely proud of, eight years later.
Ade in Britain
The programme was blessed with series production by Debra Prinselaar and great camerawork by Simon Makin. I hope it makes you smile!

Children In Need : Charley's Track Triathlon
Filmed by me driving a Transit (yes, I have driven the track too...) using two GoPros, a domestic camcorder and my iPhone 5 in a Steadicam Smoothee, this edit shows Charley's "Hour of Power" and how he raised over £3000 for Children in Need.
Tracy & John : Wedding Video To Go
Shot by Simon Makin again, I knew I'd have enough great shots to make a "pop promo" of the day - but would I be able to complete it in time to show everyone at 10pm?
The result is below - the happy couple were also able to take away a smartphone-ready version to view on their honeymoon.
