Stitch has launched their new editing company Homespun, specialising in digital content, music videos and short films.
Founded on the belief that good things grow, Homespun's talented team of editors, junior editors and assistants are all eager to work with the next generation of directors and producers. Homespun will be running an ideas-first approach – taking on projects based on the strength of their ideas rather than the size of their budget.
Stitch Managing Director Angela Hart explains: “It’s a great time to launch Homespun. We’re getting lots of interesting work through the door that’s perfect for our talented team to get their teeth into. There’s so much fantastic creative outside of conventional TV advertising that often goes unrecognised. We want to embrace that work to allow our guys and up-and-coming directors and producers to flourish. It’s a really exciting prospect.”
Stitch Editors and Founders Andy, Leo and Tim add: ‘Stitch was founded through a desire to focus on the best creative work. We’re passionate about the projects we take on and the people we work with. Homespun is an extension of this. We’re craftspeople at heart and we’re driven by working with great ideas. So as long as ideas have legs – or preferably wings — we’ll do our best to make them happen.’
Homespun will open its doors from June 2nd, located in both Stitch London and Los Angeles.
To celebrate the birth of Homespun, Stitch will be running ‘Homespun Yarns’: a competition inviting story-tellers from all backgrounds to create a piece of content that communicates the idea ‘good things grow’. Winning ideas will be given a budget to make their masterpiece happen.
Homespun Producer Alice Clarke explains: 'It’s a chance for people to indulge in their passions, to dig that idea out that’s been sitting in their sketchbook, waiting to be developed. It’s also a
chance for yet-to-be discovered talent to put themselves out there.’
Homespun Yarns will take entries from June 2nd, with up to 3 projects being commissioned in early July. The competition will culminate with an evening of screenings and celebration set for a late summer evening in September. You can find more information here
