Eric Alexander-Hughes has forged his signature editorial style, which is both evocative and immersive, through vast cumulative experience in documentary, commercial, and music video work.
While studying at San Francisco State University, Alexander-Hughes started his editing career at ad agency Pereira O’Dell. He continued to hone his skills freelancing at top editorial houses in Los Angeles. Alexander-Hughes spent the last three years with Final Cut Editorial, where he edited Spotify’s 'Black History Is Happening Now' campaign featuring Pharrell Williams and the 2019 Super Bowl spot 'Boy Band' featuring Chance the Rapper and The Backstreet Boys.
Additional work by Alexander-Hughes includes editing the hit HBO documentary mini-series 'The Defiant Ones' and dozens of music videos for J. Cole, Selena Gomez, Justin Bieber, Travis Scott, Diddy and Pharell to name a few.
“I think of editing as a marriage between two elements - classical and jazz,” said Alexander-Hughes. “The first is exact and cerebral, while the second is more free-style and rooted in a gut-feeling. I like to mix the two in my work - adapting to the individual needs of the client and project.”
Mary Ellen Duggan, co-founder and EP at The Den, commented: “Eric is a true professional and an outstanding talent. His philosophy toward editing is a perfect fit for us at The Den and we couldn’t be happier to have him join our team.”
Alexander-Hughes continued: “I’m thrilled to be joining forces with Christjan and Mary Ellen at The Den! Together, with the ultra-talented squad they’ve assembled, we have something really special at this company.”
