Jonny Elwyn is a freelance editor who has been living and working in London, UK for the past 10 years. Having grown up with a deep love for film and a healthy geek interest in all things technical, editing is his perfect job.

Hitchcock said every film has three births; the script, the shoot and the edit.  Jonny loves that the editor’s hands are some of the last the film will ever pass through before heading out into the real world.  He enjoys being freelance, having fun working with many different people on many different projects.
