Adam told us:
“I have recently had a very crazy experience being an assistant editor (avid) on the official film of the London 2012 Olympic Games (I also had the opportunity to go and shoot some material too) It has meant working with hundreds of hours of footage and makes editing ‘Void’ my student film seem like a walk in the park! A very eye opening experience”
