I've been editing broadcast TV for twenty years and have made shows with BBC, Betty, Blakeway, Daisybeck, Endemol, Friel Kean, IWC, ITV, Lion, Nine Lives, Shine, True North and many more. I have a real passion for this collaborative and creative process and specialise in factual programming. I have an Avid Edit suite at home and am mainly working remotely.
"Steve is a fantastic first-class editor whom I have worked with as my first choice editor for the past eight years. He is an excellent storyteller, a caring craftsperson and a fast cutter who always gets the best out of the material. He is known for unfailingly meeting deadlines with grace and good humour and is a delight to work with"
Neil Smith, Betty & Boundless Productions
"Steve is a fast and calm editor who likes to crack on. Very good at forcing decisions from the precious or wavering director and getting the job done. With years of experience inside and outside of the edit suite he is to be trusted to work alone as his own edit producer. Always look forward to working with Steve."
James Harrison, Freelance Director/Producer
"I have worked with Steve Hay recently in Manchester, having also worked with his some years ago. He is a creative, organised editor willing to go the extra distance to make a project come together and shine. The fact that he also shoots well and has a great understanding of the production process is a bonus. He is also entertaining to work along side and happy to work solo or as part of a team"
Virginia Hill, Freelance Series Producer
