What people say about Nick

“Nick King is the finest video editor I’ve worked with in 30 years in television – and I’ve worked with the very best. He is nothing less than a magician of the genre. His fingers play the desk like a musical instrument, literally blurring as they pass over the keys at light speed. Not only this, but he is a gentleman, a philosopher and an astronomer of the first order. He makes you laugh and he makes you think. He converses when you need to chew things over, and he is silent when it is seemly. When you are absent (even more brilliantly) uncalled-for stuff is done invisibly, when you are out of the room at night and in the morning before you arrive. This man will transform your work and yet he will never take a shred of the credit. Book him, I beg you (when I am on holiday).”

John Lloyd, Series Producer – QI

 “I loved working with Nick at Evolutions. We put together an innovatory work flow using the Red One cameras, 300 fx shots and a 5.1 mix and Nick took everything in his stride: making everything seem straightforward and effortless. He had a complete grasp on both technical and creative aspects of the production and nothing was ever too much trouble, no matter how many times I changed my mind! Actually, I didn’t change my mind, not even once. Yes, I did. No, I didn’t. Anyway, I look forward to working with him again.  Nick rocks. No, he doesn’t. Yes, he does!!”
