Edward Macdonald

DI Assistant

Based at X2X Creative Soho




Ed is a self-confessed movieholic. Growing up in the Devon countryside, he was obsessed with movies and wanted to know how they were made and by whom. As soon as he could, after university, he moved to London and joined X2X Creative (previously SHED) as a runner. He rapidly worked his way up to data and dailies operator, which fuelled his fascination with movie-making as he got to work on-set at Pinewood and Shepperton studios, where many of his favourites had been filmed.


Now a Baselight guru, Ed prepares feature film timelines prior to the final colour process. He’s worked on films such as Maleficent 2, Wounds, A Private War, Zero and Gunpowder Milkshake.


Outside of work, Ed’s hobbies are cycling, music and sport.
