The North West Resource for Broadcast Editors
Phil Henderson


Video Editor

Phil Henderson

Returned to the North West after working in London for 20 years. 

Fluent in Avid, and Adobe Premiere.

Now have 2 Avid edits suites at home and a fast broadband for dial in remote working.

Very used to working alone, working to a brief, or sharing an Edit Producer.

Mostly work in the Manchester area, through BBC, ITV and Indies at Media City. 

I retain contacts and accommodation in London and am happy to travel. 

Spent 6 months in 2019 working in London and Brighton.

Often to be found working in Leeds, Birmingham and Cardiff. 

Am based in in Warrington, a modest town blessed by exits. 

5 mins from the East Lancs, M62 and M6, so am very accessible.

Became a freelance editor in 2001 after working as a Staff editor at m2 television in Soho and Camden. 

Since then worked in a variety of fields, a few corridors and under the stairs all over the country.

Am quite inclined to make compelling, intelligent half decent very watchable television. 

Back in the era of tape I onlined many shows.
These days through work availability I mostly do offline editing, though I regularly cut VT and finish pieces that are then going straight to broadcast. 

Quick enough to cut sport highlights, and mix cameras live for stage screens, creative enough for a Promax Award for an MTV/Osbournes promo, and popular enough to be constantly rebooked. 

I don't mind finger clickers, but no arm punchers please unless you got rhythm, or are a fully ticketed masseur.
