(Los Angeles, California--April 14, 2014) Cut+Run is excited to announce that award-winning editor Lucas Eskin has joined the company. His first project at Cut+Run is a spot for the Newport Beach Film Festival via agency RPA and directed by Tom Routson of TOOL.
“Lucas is so talented, which is evident in the scope and breadth of his work. He has an incredible passion for editing,” says Cut+Run EP, Carr Schilling. “When you say his name, people’s faces light up. Everytime.”
“For many years I’ve admired the work and the very special culture of Cut+Run,” explains Lucas. “Clients are drawn to it and it shows in the work. To be surrounded by the incredible talent – the editors, producers and staff – I can do what I love in the best environment possible.”
Lucas, a Santa Monica, CA native, came of age at Mad River Post, defining his editing passion at the company and ultimately assuming a leadership role before joining Beast (then Filmcore) as Senior Editor in 2009.
He has lent his editing talent to such noted projects as the Cannes Lion and Clio Award-winning Apple Vs. PC campaign for TBWAChiatDay, numerous iconic Nike spots for Wieden & Kennedy, and BBDO’s VISA Olympics “Extreme”
