Editor Aika Miyake has joined the roster of Cut+Run for representation in the U.S. She is based in the company’s L.A. office.
Miyake, a member of Free The Bid, has collaborated with the likes of Wieden + Kennedy, Nike, Dentsu, TBWA, Mercedes Benz, and BMW. Her Nike Air Force 1 “Force” was shortlisted at Cannes for editing and her “Mom’s first birthday” for Pampers was honored at numerous award shows including Spike, New York Festivals, ACC and Ad Stars. Prior to coming aboard Cut+Run, Miyake was with Cutters.
The Tokyo-raised, California-educated Miyake is a former drummer who professes to see edits like rhythms. “I am in love with the craft of film editing. Weaving all the beats, movements and feelings together to create a bigger wave is what I live for. The more you edit, the more you learn. Editing has taught me nothing in life is ever completely black or white, and with every project I discover another dimension of this world.”
Cut+Run operates under a borderless philosophy making its editors available worldwide on location and via its shops in London, New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Austin.
