I've edited and produced shows for Sky, ITV, Channel 4, ESPN, directed and edited commercials for many international clients, produced short films, created podcasts and filmed all over the world.
What can I do for you?

How I Work
Instead of making you come in, sit down and feel pressured to make decisions - as the hourly rate ticks by - I work remotely so your decisions can be measured and considered. You can also show drafts of your reel to your agent along the way for additional feedback, making your investment work better for you. Plus, this means we can work together wherever you are in the UK, or anywhere in the world.
Simply deliver me the footage you’d like to use (in any format you have), we’ll chat about what you’d like and we take it from there – discussing scene selection, edit choices, and style. If you're not sure what you'd like included I'm very happy to go through for you and make suggestions.
The first draft of your reel will be available within 48 hours from receipt of your material.
Whether you’re an actor, a presenter, a voice artist, an animator, writer, musician - or the human statue dressed as Gold-Yoda-on-a-stick at Piccadilly Circus... I'll create a reel that will show you at your very best.
My service does not encompass showreel filming. My expertise and experience is in editing - my clients all have existing material and together we edit and compile their footage into a compelling reel.
If you are looking to make a reel from scratch or film extra scenes for your showreel there are loads of amazing companies who specialise in that and would love to hear from you.

what you'd like
"Dave is the perfect combination - a really nice, easy-going person who is also very, very good at what he does. I would encourage anyone getting a showreel done to approach him first!"
- Serena, Presenter
"From the start David was very easy to communicate with, I'm very happy with my new reel and would highly recommend Steam Video to any performers!"
- Rachael, Dancer
If you've appeared in a piece of creative work on TV, online or on radio, chances are that it can be located and retrieved. Whether you'd like it to make up part of your showreel, you want to have the clip for your website or you just want to send it to your mum - tell me about it and I'll get it for you.
BBC iPlayer, ITVHub, 4oD, Prime Video, Netflix, Disney+, YouTube, Vimeo... If it's been broadcast or released I can almost definitely get my hands on it.
