Editor Adam Rudd Returns to Final Cut London

London, UK
Rudd marks his return with successful campaigns for Sainsbury's and BBC One

British native Adam Rudd has relocated from Final Cut Los Angeles to return to his roots at Final Cut’s London flagship. Rudd marks his return with two successful, decidedly English campaigns to his name; Sainsbury’s ‘Food Dancing’, the first work out of Wieden+Kennedy for the ubiquitous grocer and directed by Knucklehead’s Siri Bunford, and BBC One’s first new idents in over a decade with renowned English documentary photographer Martin Parr.

Adam Rudd’s career (and corresponding love affair with Los Angeles) began at USC’s prestigious School of Cinematic Arts. Upon graduation, he returned to London where he quickly made a name for himself editing the launch campaign of the newly minted television network Film4. The success of the campaign propelled Rudd to editing work for some of Europe’s most iconic brands and campaigns. After a four year tenure at FCUK, the California coast called him back.

And after more than six successful years working out of the company’s LA office, Rudd returns to FCUK, and looks forward to working on even more of the UK’s most iconic brands. “I am very happy to be back at FCUK, and especially pleased to return now, when so much great work is coming out of the London office. One of the things I love about Final Cut is that in every office there exists the same high level of creativity and kinship, so moving between offices is actually very easy,” says Rudd of his return to Final Cut’s flagship office. "While I am now based here in London, I certainly hope work brings me back to the States frequently... I've still got my paddle board waiting for me in LA!" Final Cut has long been committed to the tenet that all of their editors are available to work seamlessly across all offices.

Senior Editor and partner David Webb says of Rudd’s return, “It's great to have Adam back on the UK Roster, after six years working in the US and honing his craft. He is a fantastic editor with a highly developed creative sensibility as well as a much loved member of the FC family.”

“I am grateful to have worked on such well-received work immediately upon my return; I am particularly happy with Sainsbury’s and BBC One; it’s been such a pleasure working again with Knucklehead’s Siri Bunford, as well as Martin Parr, whom I have tremendous respect for.”

Other notable work includes the 3D Gucci “Guilty” campaign directed by renowned comic book creator and director Frank Miller (Sin City), the VFX intensive Julius Baer campaign with feature film director Marc Forster (World War Z, Monster’s Ball), numerous collaborations with director and photographer David LaChapelle including campaigns for Coke, Wet n Wild, and Ulta, as well as the AICE and AICP winning Gillette “Training Tracks” with visionary director Michel Gondry. In addition to his recent work with Sainsbury’s and BBC, Rudd has recently completed work with director Ava DuVernay (Selma) for Apple Music with Translation.

While Adam Rudd now resides in London, he continues to be available to work across Final Cut’s network of offices.
