Zeb Achonu

Film & TV Editor

A highly experienced, London based freelance film and TV editor. With over twenty years experience in the broadcast industry, I have worked across various genres but currently focus on documentary and drama.

Recent work has included a number of music docs including Queens of Rap (Channel 4); Made In Britain, a 3 part series covering Jungle, UKG and Grime (1Xtra/ iPlayer); and work on forthcoming feature doc, White Lion (Pavillion Works) -The incredible story of M Dot R, a white, working class man from the Isle of Sheppey and his life-changing obsession with a vibrant music scene born out of Caribbean culture.

I am proud to have cut BAFTA, NTA and Emmy Award winning programmes including EastEnders, Bear Grylls Survival School, Our Family, and Paul O’Grady for the Love of Dogs.

I am an Associate Governor of the British Film Editors guild, and a member of BAFTA. I also regularly speak on panels about post production, diversity and navigating the industry.
