About Us

Shoot2Edit is formed from a group of broadcast professionals who have tens of years of experience each.

We’ve all worked on productions as varied as nightly news programmes to celebrity game shows and dramas. As a team we have worked independently and together so there’s a great buzz during our shoots.

Our experience shows from the first meeting, we are able to formulate a plan for your production and fit in with your budget. We will be able to create the video or production you require at a price that works for you.

Our core team consists of Lighting Cameramen, Sound Recordists, Directors, Script Writers, Drone Operators and Craft Editors. We can then pull on our vast resources and involve Voice Over Artists, Composers and Distribution specialists. Each project will be given our full attention and the results are always well received by our clients.

If you require a training video or a multi camera production delivered via the internet or satellite we can bring some of the best people in the industry to make your production happen at the right price.
