Roy is an incredibly fast editor with sharp editorial judgement. He's also brilliant with music and very creative: a joy to work with!

Emily Davis, Producer/Director "Britain's Most Historic Towns" Channel 4

I worked with Roy on the highly successful BYZANTIUM series for BBC4 in 2013. Roy is a very fast, highly technical editor. At the same time he has a sound editorial head and a capacity to envisage the "whole" film. Roy is extremely creative and enjoys his craft. He is also a pleasure to work with, and his consensual approach pays dividends. I would heartily recommend Roy to any documentary maker.

Graham Johnston (Bafta/Emmy winning Producer
