The North West Resource for Broadcast Editors
Robert Alon-Monks



Robert Alon-Monks


I’m a highly experienced offline editor, using Avid, Final Cut Pro, Adobe Premiere and having a proficient knowledge of the complete range. I follow my instincts when ‘telling the story to the audience’ which allows me to completely absorb myself in the craft of editing.   The result is a visually engaging narrative that will capture the imagination of the viewers



Throughout my career I have worked on a diverse range of programmes including  dramas, soaps, documentaries, factuals, corporate and music videos for all the main broadcasters, as well as setting up several new edit suites for various companies.   I have a great eye for detail and the ability to 'tell the story to the audience' and these are just some of the qualities that I pride myself on as an editor
