Who are you and what’s your story?
I’m Ben and I’m a Video Editor. I studied Film Production at university, and then shortly afterwards moved to London to work full time as an Editor. I’ve edited and created motion graphics for a range of big
clients and I can honestly say I love what I do! Aside from my work I like to travel, play tennis and play as many video games as I can.
What attracted you to the role at Marmalade?
I really like the hard-hitting content that Marmalade produces and I think I will enjoy working on those types of projects. I think the role is going to present me with some new challenges in
regards to film styles and genres, and I’m looking forward to being more involved in the creative process and sharing my ideas with the team.
Who would be your dream client/project?
One day I’d love to work on an Attenborough documentary. Or a documentary about prisons. Or games. Or I’d like to edit something that would allow me to travel the world. I’m open to ideas!
Special Skill: I’m pretty good at Ping Pong. And I can quote Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone (nearly) word for word.
Movie/TV series of the month: That would probably have to be the return of Black Mirror. Although most of the stuff Netflix is producing at the moment is equally awesome (i.e. Stranger Things, Making a Murderer). But I do love how each episode of Black Mirror is a completely different concept with a different cast, and each one somehow manages to entertain as much as it scares me about the future of humanity!
