From assisting on iconic British feature ‘Calendar Girls’ to crime drama ‘Tango One’, Guy’s route to the Editor’s chair has encompassed comedy, action, horror, romcom, arthouse and some very poignant documentaries along the way. He’s a creative editor, and will trawl the rushes for unexpected moments to lift the story, and to fulfil his passion for storytelling. With bases in London and Scotland, he is available for work worldwide.

“It is always a pleasure to work with Guy.  He is erudite and patient and really knows how to dig deep into the material to bring out the best in a scene.  As a writer-director as well as an editor he brings a fine narrative eye to the table, thinking around problems with innovative solutions.  You’ll always end up with the best version of your film or show if you heed his thorough and tactfully-delivered advice.”
