The North West Resource for Broadcast Editors
Kate Deadman



Kate Deadman

I am a fast, creative and motivated Avid editor with over 20 years’ experience in broadcast programming. Starting in 1997 as an edit assistant, I quickly became one of the leading staff editors in the largest and busiest post-production facility in Manchester.
I am strong on narrative and structure and equally confident in working to a format or starting from scratch, and although I very much enjoy working with a wide range of directors, I am experienced enough to work by myself if needed.

Now, as a freelance editor, I can bring to your project a calm, creative and motivated approach, giving you exactly what you need to bring your programme to fruition.
