Work Editorial announces the addition of editor Matthew Prickett to its team of editing talent.
Matthew has a wide and varied portfolio, having cut commercials for clients including The Guardian, Audible, Reebok and Xbox, with directors including The Sacred Egg and Mark Denton and music videos for acts such as Sam Fender, Swim Deep and Brooke Combe.
With over a decade of experience in editing commercials and music videos, Matthew's career began in 2010 at the Miami branch of ad agency Crispin Porter + Bogusky, where he spent five years developing his craft before making the switch to their London office and then onto Cut+Run in Soho.
Matthew is a long-time admirer of Work’s creative output, and is excited to be embarking on the next phase of his career with the team. “I feel hugely lucky and grateful to be joining Work; some of my favourite ads such as Canal Plus - The Bear, Red Cross - Hopeless, and Apple - The Underdogs, were cut by Work editors. Everyone there is extremely talented and kind, and it’s a place where I hope to grow,” he says.
He has got off to a strong start in his new role, having already edited a promotional video for The Amazons’ track Bloodrush (James Slater) and a commercial for Simply Business, directed by Jonnie Malachi through Kode Media.
For Matthew, a good selecting process is central to producing a strong edit, and he describes his own technique as “thorough”. “I learnt my selecting process whilst assisting and watching great editors be rigorously detailed, and I’ve tried to work in a similar way ever since,” he says. His favourite part of the editing process is the moment between making selections and getting stuck into the first cut.
Work London EP, Ellie McNaughtan says: “Matthew is a confident, creative editor with excellent technical knowledge and a fantastic portfolio of work. He is also a really lovely person to spend time with! We know he’s going to do great things and we’re delighted to have him on the roster.”view more - Hires, Wins & BusinessWORK UK, Tue, 24 May 2022 15:36:18 GMT
