David McCann - Editor

Currently Available


I'm a creative, fast and dedicated editor with 8 years’ experience working across multiple television genres. In the last two years I have received 30 credits for the BBC, ITV, ALL4, C5, Blue Ant Media, Artè, Film4 and Smithsonian. In 2017 I was nominated by Channel 4 for a Bafta in short story editing following the success of their series "Our First Gay Summer" where I worked as lead editor.

Prior to this I worked in development at the BBC and Plimsoll Productions editing hundreds of sizzle reels and pilots for domestic and US markets. This experience has enabled me to edit quickly while consistently producing high quality work.

I am proficient in Avid MC, Adobe Premiere and FCP
