Video editor &
post specialist

I'm Jake and I love nothing more than getting stuck into an edit. While many people shy away from the dark edit suite, this is where I'm most at home. As a multi-skilled film producer, I've had the honour of working with brands and businesses all over the globe. Over the course of my career I have naturally gravitated towards post-production. I am constantly looking forward to the next exciting story to tell.

"Jake was the glue that held everything together for me in Cornwall, while producing many of Virgin Orbit's iconic films featuring their first overseas launch, and the UK's first ever launch to orbit. Jake immediately blew me away with his ability to receive nothing more than a hard drive full of audio and video and make magic happen in the edit with no direction up front. He is consummate-professional, instantly easy to be around and work with and I have no doubt will be someone who I will go to many times again to handle post production of large, multi-camera productions.Make your life easier, hire him as your editor, and hand him the hard drive. That's all you'll need to do."Daniel Jarvis - Creative Director, Virgin Orbit.
