BAFTA and EMMY nominated picture editor Niven Howie, ACE, first established himself in his home city of London as a leading editor for high-end commercials and music videos having cut more than 400 such projects.
It was Niven’s edit of the award-winning film Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels for director Guy Ritchie that earned him his first BAFTA nomination and brought him to the attention of Hollywood.
