Offline & Online Editor

Paul Shields

Offline and Online Editor with over 20 years broadcast experience.

I have worked as an editor in broadcast post production for over 20 years, first in a staff position at a large post house followed by a busy 9 years as a freelancer. I bring a wealth of experience in editorial, craft and finishing to every project with an in-depth knowledge of Avid editing systems.

Lightning fast but thorough with a creative eye for detail I am at home at any stage of the edit from offline through to online. I am organised, fast and highly skilled in Avid's inbuilt effects meaning I can work with a VFX artist to maximise what is possible in and out of Media Composer as well as quickly come up with solutions to continuity problems where a clever split screen can often save the day.

I am at home cutting a multicamera studio show, 5 minute factual feature or grading a self shot documentary.  A fast, safe pair of hands, I love working with music and pride myself on my attention to detail in everything from ensuring a guide vo is clear and concise to spelling every contributor’s name correctly on screen.

I live within easy reach of MediaCity but have ultra fast broadband and my own edit system which can run Avid either independently or remotely to a facility, offline or online.
