"I have worked with Jake on multiple projects over the past 18 months and he is now my first-choice Editor. Why? Firstly, because he listens to the brief and what I am looking for and always adds value. Secondly, because he is always fast to come back; not just with the first edit, but subsequent minor edits and revisions (which in my world with demanding customers in turn is gold dust). Thirdly, the edit pace and use of cut-aways are considered and Jake's work is always conscientious. And as if that isn't enough reason to hire him, Jake is also nimble on captions and general GFX, can mix a serviceable audio pass, and has a very good eye for the grade. Oh, and he's always a pleasure to work with."
“I’ve worked with Jake for the past 4 years. He is a wonderfully creative individual with a great eye for fine details. An asset to any production, he has high-level technical skills and a real sense of responsibility for the projects he works on. I’ve been able to watch him flourish as an individual during our time working together and am excited to work with him again on future projects.”

"My first experience of working with Jake was grading my first feature, "The Surgeon". Jake was brilliant. He worked remotely at first as we were in lockdown - preparing different “Looks" for me to see, always coming up with options, and being very patient. He helped to give the film the feel I initially had in my head for the film, and he came up with ways to fix any mistakes that occurred in the shoot. When I asked him “What would you do on this scene if it were your film?” he really let rip creatively and so some scenes are infused with his energy and creativity - which would be lacking if he hadn’t been the colourist! Jake is very conscientious and hardworking, always prepared - and a total film fan - just a pleasure to work with. The film looks really great now, and I look forward to working with Jake in the future."

"Jake has been working with Flashcat for over 2 years in various areas of pre and post-production. He applies a creative eye, strong editorial skills and production know-how with great focus and enthusiasm. I would not hesitate to recommend him to work for any potential business prospect."

I approached Jake to work on my most recent showreel as we had collaborated on multiple projects in the past year and I knew his creative eye would be perfect for what I was aiming to achieve. The end result was fantastic. Jake does not only bring an outstanding creative vision, but also a strong technical understanding. The experience of working with him is one I would strongly recommend.

"Working with Jake was both a joy and a pleasure. He has visual flair and is patient. He's a fantastic creative storyteller and has an eye for detail. Much better than some of the seasoned editors I've worked with. During the pandemic, we had to work completely remotely and what he produced, in the end, was amazing. He worked with us from the beginning of a feature documentary and he's most definitely a name to watch out for in the future."
