Lia Hayes


 Lia is a film editor and colourist born and bred in the seaside town of Fleetwood, now based in Leeds UK.

After initially training as an artist, Lia found her passion for cinematic storytelling by editing experimental film projects and realised that filmmaking was her creative outlet. With inspiration ranging from art, cinema, conversations and people, she likes to highlight human idiosyncrasies in her work, through social realism to dark comedy,
through subtltey to controversy, to help to tell stories that matter.

Lia has worked on a wide range of films and projects and is always seeking to find new ways to expand her practice and explore different genres and techniques.
