The North West Resource for Broadcast Editors
Stuart Lutes



Stuart Lutes

I've been editing for nearly 23 years now, starting my career in London in the glamourous world of home shopping telly when I was 21.  In London, I worked in a huge variety of genres including sport, entertainment, documentary, reality TV but, my heart will always be in comedy where I've had the pleasure of working with some Britain's brightest and best.  I moved back to the North West in 2016 to start a family, where I worked on a variety of ob docs, cooking shows and entertainment shows.  I've since moved to Glasgow where I've been on a long streak of dating reality shows, mainly working with clients in London.  The dream, however, is still to get back into comedy programming. Aside from comedy, I'm most at home cutting fast-paced VTs, crafting music and making stuff look as pretty as possible.

Other interests:  Biscuits.  Just hide them. You've been warned.
