Prolific Melbourne-based editor Jack Hutchings, founder of The Butchery, joins Work Editorial for representation outside Australia and New Zealand.
With an eye for storytelling across all genres, Hutchings’ reel is a checklist of high profile brands such as Honda, Ikea, Virgin and Lotto, and work that has won multiple awards from Cannes Lions to The Clios. Stand-out campaigns include World Wildlife Fund’s ‘Space Monkey’ directed by Steve Rogers for Leo Burnett (Cannes Lions Gold, NY Festival Gold, Silver), Schweppes ‘Burst’ by Garth Davis for GPY&R (Cannes Lions & NY Festival Golds) and Sky ‘Murmuration’ by Steve Ayson for DDB New Zealand (D&AD Pencil). His Boots ‘Summer Rush' by Garth Davis is honoured in the permanent collection of film at The Museum of Modern Art in New York.
Often the go-to performance editor to work with actors including Ewan McGregor, Harvey Keitel, Alicia Vikander and Vincent Cassel, Hutchings has collaborated with directors that include Steve Ayson, Garth Davis, Steve Rogers, Mark Molloy, and Cate Shortland. US directors Jack has edited for from within Australia include Tom Kuntz, Paul Goldman, Benji Weinstein and Brian Aldrich.
Hutchings’ versatility is a proven body of work that crosses all formats and translates across all markets, with the idea or the story being of intrinsic importance. His features and short films have been in official selection at major festivals including Cannes, Sundance, Venice, Toronto and SXSW. With four shorts in competition at Cannes, ‘Cracker Bag’ directed by Glendyn Ivin and Julius Avery’s ‘Jerrycan’ won the Palme D’Or and Jury Prize respectively. His feature credits include the AFI-nominated Last Ride by Glendyn Ivin and ‘Bastardy’, and a documentary feature by Amiel Courtin-Wilson, AFI-nominated for Best Documentary and Best Editing. Most recently, Cate Shortland's feature ‘Berlin Syndrome’ premiered this year at Sundance.
Stewart Reeves, Partner/Editor at Work Editorial LA, said: "I have known Jack for many years and we have tried to work out how to work together since we met. He is a great editor, a generous spirit and much taller than he seems.”
Jane Dilworth, Founder/EP at Work Editorial, comments: “Jack and Work share a lot of the same ideas and ways of working, so this is a natural fit for us both. It’s great to be representing him outside of Australia and we look forward to having him at Work.”view more - Hires, Wins & BusinessWORK London, Tue, 01 Aug 2017 14:39:32 GMT
