Editing is everything, well at least to me.
There is nothing I love more than getting my teeth in to rushes that are a challenge to cut, and from them, making a silk purse.
It's a fervent hope anyway!
I'm lucky. I started an apprenticeship at the beginning of my career with the biggest programme maker in the world. I still have the opportunity to make programmes for them.
Making something look pretty is nice.
But, in its self it's just not enough, for only the story really counts. Everything else is just spit and polish.
