George’s Superpower: Video editing!

Q. Why do you do what you do?
A. Working with video is a fantastic crossover of the technical and the creative. My background is in computer science and music technology, so video appealed to me because it gave me the scope to apply technical solutions to creative problems.

Q. How did you wake up to the change agenda?
A. Like many people of my generation, David Attenborough! Volans has certainly helped as well.

Q. When are you most fulfilled?
