David Ormston is an exceptionally talented video editor at Sky Production Services (SPS) with over 23 years’ experience. He is currently mainly focused on News & Sport, covering popular short film series ‘Jessica’s Parkrun Heroes’, Sky News’ critically-acclaimed ‘Hotspots’ (On The Frontline and specials), as well as various Sky Sports documentaries.

Approaching his 10-year anniversary at SPS, he has specialised in offline storytelling and worked in several other areas of editing. ‘Hotspots: On The Frontline’ stands out as one of David’s recent favourite projects, as he’s worked across various seasons of the news docuseries over the past few years.
