Pete visits some former students now editing in London!

Pete visited some of his former students working in London as editors yesterday. Jake as many will know from his visits to college now works at "Blue" Post Production with another of Pete's students, Simon Briggs (Managing Director - Blue), while Suzy Davis is an Editor at Final Cut, London.

Here's Jake editing the reported Girls Aloud/Sugarbabes charity collaboration, can't tell you what the track is though, will have to wait!

Simon and Jake in one of many edit suites at Blue P.P.

Go to "Blue" Post Production's website at this link. "Blue" are responsible for the BBC2 advert in which Elvis Presley fronts an All-Star Backing Band... go here to see what blue say about it, and here to listen to a podcast on the making of it!

Suzy Davis works at Final Cut, an edit studio with links in New York and Los Angeles. To date she has edited music videos such as Will Young's "", The Streets, "Fit But You Know It" as well as many TV ads for Boots, Orange, Vodafone, Wrigleys, Pepsi, BBC Radio and Amnesty International.
