Full name

Lisa Forrest




Based in London, I’m an experienced and creative editor, well-versed in documentaries, dramas, corporate films and promos.

I relish the challenge of making stories work in the edit, and you’ll find me a committed yet easy-going presence, confident working collaboratively or by myself. I’m happy to help write scripts and captions, and I have excellent technical and troubleshooting skills on Avid, FCP & Premiere.

You can hire me alone, or with my MacBook Pro laptop and editing software.
