About Ability Academy

About Nigel and Why he Set up Ability?

Ability (Post Production) Academy was set up by Nigel G Honey.

Nigel - Lead Trainer was told he would never be a Film Editor because of his Invisible Disability. He went on to Edit Films for Aberdeen, Cannes, Raindance, Edinburgh International and BAFTA Film Festivals.

Ability's Moto is "Taking the Dis" out of Disability in Film and TV Training. Our Training Focusses on Student's Natural Abilities rather than Focus on their Disability.
