aboutDigital Dog

We love working with digital media.

For over thirty years Alfie West has worked on feature films, TV series, news, current affairs and documentaries. His career began with a five year apprenticeship in photolithography (specialising in colour correction) then moved into television. He is film trained and co-owned a 16mm Steenbeck flatbed editing machine back in the dark (pre-digital) age. An ongoing passion for music saw him editing more than half of the rock videos that were produced in Auckland in the seventies and early eighties - those were heady days indeed!

The adventure continued in London where a spell of OE turned into ten years. Surviving in a big city requires patience and adaptability and after wrapping parcels for a yacht chandler and bluffing his way as a graphic designer for a couple of ad agencies, Alfie eventually scored an editing job with the BBC.
    He set up as a freelancer as film gave way to video and spent many happy years cutting a mix of docos, corporates, news and current affairs. There was a great demand for talented editors in the UK - this progressed naturally to directing and producing for television.

Alfie's been lucky enough to have worked for many of the world's top broadcasters and corporates - here's a partial client list.
