Some Info

Hello! I’m Aidan Carroll, an editor and filmmaker based in Newry, Northern Ireland. I graduated from Liverpool Hope University with BA Single Honors in Film & TV Production: 2:1.

Since graduating, I have edited projects that have won awards at film festivals and competitions. Into the Fire won Audience Choice at Newry Film Festival and Steel Standing was shortlisted as a winner of a music video competition hosted by the Video Editor’s Group on LinkedIn, which had more than 400 entries.

I’m very open-minded about learning new skills and love being part of the creative process. Show me a camera and I’ll get used to it, give me a boom pole and I’ll hit record, or show me new software and I’ll experiment until I’m competent using it.

When I’m not working I’m either at the gym, reading, playing guitar, catching up with mates or watching a TV show/movie that’s been on my watchlist on Netflix. If any of the following appeal to you, why not get in touch with me?

Core Services

  • Editing

    I was introduced to video editing with Final Cut Pro 7 at college and when I noticed how easy it was to create a story I was hooked. The past few years I’ve edited on Adobe Premiere Pro, mainly due to the constant change in file formats and the drag and drop approach it offers to workflows.

  • Sound Design

    I’ve always had an interest in sound, playing guitar may have something to do with this. If I’m not recording audio, I’ll compose music or mix tracks so the sound is consistent. Like editing, if nobody notices the work, I’m happy with the audio.

  • Filming

    If I’m filming a project I pre-plan what will be needed for the shoot. How many batteries are needed, how many SD cards and where’s the nearest power source for lights? This saves time and hassle so I can focus on getting great footage.

  • Compositing

    Whether it’s compositing green screen, text animation or special effects, editing and visual effects go hand in hand. It’s essential to learn these skills otherwise you’re only stopping yourself from expanding your knowledge.

  • Authoring

    No matter what platform you want to distribute your work, I am able to accommodate your needs. I can create an easy to use interface and give your project a professional look if you want to view it on DVD, or if you want to share your project online I can produce a high-quality video that’s able to be viewed on multiple devices.
