Dear Mrs Smith

Position of Supervising Editor

I saw the advertisement for the post of Supervising Editor on your website and am very keen to apply.   Being a supervising editor for your company would be an incredible opportunity, I would like to work at your company particularly because it already strong and growing reputation in the film production industry.

Over the past 3 years I have worked at a local production company, creating numerous adverts and small scale films for numerous companies. I was required to undertake all post production editing, with help from the assistant editor. I have also helped small companies that make short films for the website YouTube. On several occasions they have contacted me individually, requesting help with my post production editing expertise, wanting their work to be finished at a professional level. My proudest work would be working on the film series The Hunger Games, I was an assistant editor for all three of the current films, and I am set to continue this role for the last instalment.

I specialise in a wide variety of editing techniques, using these techniques to create the best final edits possible. I am an intense learner so when it comes to creating work for specific directors, I am easily able to change the editing style I use. I am a great team player, offering many ideas for the film itself and different editing techniques to use in the process. I have done lots of work with VFX in the past, I know it is not the job description, but i feel that it links heavily to post production editing because I can use that knowledge and perhaps add some VFX features such as compositing.

I would be delighted to discuss my application further at an interview. Please contact me on 07971244167 or at if you need any additional information.

Thank you for your consideration

Yours sincerely,

Ben Davis
