About the Event

In this WFTV event Series Producer Jo Woolf, who has spent more than a decade edit producing all genres of unscripted content, will explain the story-telling approaches she uses when faced with different types of rushes.

Whether it's a case of searching for the story amongst obs doc material, honing the story from vast quantities of footage, or creating the story when the key narrative falls away - Jo will give you tips and techniques that you can use on your projects.

Jo Woolf, Series Producer and Senior Edit Producer

Jo has worked on every type of factual series from competition formats such as Great British Bake-Off to specialist factual series like Hidden Britain by Drone.  She's edit produced household favourites including First Dates, Masterchef and 24 Hours in A and E, as well as helped create many brand-new formats and one-off documentaries.

Jo was one of the first Factual TV edit producers and, alongside working on productions, has been running edit producer training via DV Talent and Screenskills for the past decade. Over lockdown Jo set up her own training company which offers factual TV production courses for freelancers and companies, free masterclasses featuring guest industry experts, and one-to-one coaching for those wanting to make any sort of change in their TV career.
