Editor Tom Eagles Joins Rock Paper Scissors

Oscar-nominated editor Tom Eagles has joined Rock Paper Scissors (RPS) for commercial representation in the US. Tom is best known for his collaborations with director and producer Taika Waititi on the acclaimed feature film Jojo Rabbit and both the movie and episodes of the FX hit comedy What We Do In The Shadows. 

Tom’s work on Jojo Rabbit earned him a number of high-profile nominations and awards, including an Academy Award nomination for Best Film Editing, as well as the BAFTA Award for Best Editing and an ACE Eddie Award. 

His most recent project was editing director Jeymes Samuel’s high-style revisionist Western, The Harder They Fall, starring Jonathan Majors, Idris Alba, and Zazie Beetz.  

Tom originally began his career editing commercials, which includes campaigns for Uniqlo and Carlton Dry in his native Aotearoa/New Zealand; however, this will be his first US representation for commercials. 

“Tom’s work is funny as f#@*, I mean truly and actually funny,” said Angus Wall, founding partner at Rock Paper Scissors. “It’s amazing how he’s able to blend that sense of genuine comedy with drama. I'm excited to have someone join us who is so uniquely skilled in telling these kinds of stories in all formats.” 

On joining, Tom said: “The roster at Rock Paper Scissors is so well respected in the film world. They have had an impact on our craft for so long and I am eager to work with them in the commercial space.” 

“We are thrilled to help support Tom for commercials. He is one of the freshest voices in editing,” added Eve Kornblum, RPS managing director. “We are really looking forward to blending our world with his.” 

Originally from Aotearoa/New Zealand, Tom currently lives with his family in Los Angeles.
