Connor began with True North in 2018, whilst on his placement year from Leeds Beckett University, where he was hired as a Location Assistant for Shop Smart Save Money.
Fast forward to 2019, Connor graduated and started back at True North full-time as an Edit Assistant. Throughout his time, he has had the opportunity to work with a large range of broadcasters for a variety of docuseries and has credits for RTS Award-winning shows, such as The Pets Factor and Darcey Bussell’s Wild Coasts of Scotland.
In 2021, Connor progressed to working as a Junior Editor for shows Devon & Cornwall and The Pennines: Backbone of Britain. His biggest aspiration is to progress further to be a full-time Editor, working with people and stories from across the globe.
What shows are you particularly proud of that you have worked on at True North and elsewhere?
Devon & Cornwall was my first Junior Editor credit, so it holds a special place in my heart!
Anything that stands out about your career?
How helpful and supportive everyone is. Everyone is looking out for each other and helping each other to be better.
What’s your favourite bit about the job?
Any chance I get editing – that’s my real passion.
What show would you most like to make if you could make anything in the world?
Probably “Drive to Survive” on Netflix or “The Grand Tour”, one big long road trip that looks beautiful, showing the worlds nooks and crannies and is a bit of a laugh. Can you spot the four wheeled theme between both shows?
Anything you feel really strongly about in the industry?
I definitely feel like there’s a lot of exciting opportunities for younger people in TV, and tonnes of people that want to get young talent on board! I’m more than happy to pay it forward and doing as much as possible to inspire and help younger generations to get into TV… even though it’ll start making me feel old soon.
Anything else you would like to tell us about yourself?
My tea and coffee making ability has improved drastically since joining True North.
