Channel 4.0
Channel 4, 2023

I spent several months working on Channel 4’s new youth-focused digital channel, Channel 4.0, showcasing entertainment from the UK's biggest creators.

I edited content for the channel’s TikTok, YouTube shorts and Instagram reels, taking the best moments from our Digital Original shows for new audiences. I edited over 150 videos for the channels, with some of the strongest performers including Adeola on Tapped Out (6.4 million views); Harry and Filly talking about dates (1.6 million views); Making someone hold nappies on Bad Baby (800K);  Harry Pinero's 'African Dad' acting (1.7 million views); and Filly's Parliamentary speech (4.8 million views).

My strongest edits are when I had the chance to work with behind-the-scenes footage, and videos filmed on set for social media. My After Effects skills were used to add energy and vibrance to these videos, with motion graphics and editing tricks used to make phone footage into a fun, creative edit. These performed really strongly, for example with this backstage interview with Filly gaining 5.7 million views, one of our highest to date.

I also edited a showreel of Channel 4.0's best moments, directly with a high-level stakeholder - one of Channel 4's commissioners. This was screened at the Indie Briefing, and used to show Channel 4.0's vision and purpose to production companies from around the company.
