Offline & Online Editor

Sion Roberts

Hello there! I'm a long-form scripted-format editor, passionately working in the UK's TV drama and film industry. I've worked in this field for the last 5 years, both as an offline editor and as a 1st AE, continually developing my own methodical, fast and instinctive approach to the nuanced discipline of narrative storytelling. I also have plenty of experience as a finishing editor; I was a staff onliner for many years prior to going freelance, though I occasionally still fulfill the role on an ad-hoc basis between longer term contracts. It gets me involved with a broad variety of production genres, and can cover everything from colour grading to visual effects to file-encoding and delivery. I'm based near Cardiff, South Wales, though I'm happy whittling away long days at any edit suite across the UK. I've also got a great Avid setup at home which has seen plenty of investment recently with the shift towards remote operating.
