Post production platform Racoon has appointed two finishing editors, Nick Dixon and George Winfield, as it continues to grow its creative team.

Dixon has accrued over 26 years of television industry experience, working across one-off documentaries and documentary films, to repeat series for popular shows such as 24 Hours in Police Custody, TOWIE, Geordie Shore and QI.

Winfield has worked on a wide range of projects offering offline and online editing to shows including Michael McIntyre’s Big Show,  The Masked Singer and 8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown, as well as finishing for Adam Curtis’s critically acclaimed documentary film HyperNormalisation.

Both Dixon and Winfield will be based in the regions, taking advantage of the Racoon work anywhere user experience. They  both have access to physical space for edit, collaboration and review in London and with regional partners.

Charlotte Layton, CCO, Racoon said: “The fact that both George and Nick have made life choices to live outside of London truly supports our desire to enable creative talent to work wherever they choose.”

Annie Francis Head of Production, Racoon added: “Having worked with Nick in a previous life I know what amazing talent he brings to our team and George’s industry reputation speaks for itself. I’m so excited to have them both on board”

David Klafkowski (Klaf), CEO, Racoon said: “Having two such well known editors join our team is terrific. For them both to be able to work their edit magic for their loyal clients regionally is brilliant and a great proof point for our model and platform ”

Racoon, the brainchild of the former management team of The Farm, centralises all the services offered by a traditional post facility and delivers them wherever they are needed – at home, in their Soho facilities, in clients’ offices and on location.
