Creative editorial and postproduction company Final Cut has added Nicolas Larrouquère to its roster of talent in the U.S., marking his first signing in the American market. Raised in the South of France, Larrouquère began his career recutting trailers with his friends as a teenager, graduated to amateur skate videos, and eventually became a sought-after editor. He is repped in France by Collectiv.
Throughout his career, Larrouquère has developed a rapport with regular collaborators, including directors Manu Cossu, François Rousselet, Pantera, and Jonathan Alric. His work with Alric includes a powerful, heartbreaking film, “Whatever It Takes,” for Macmillan Cancer Support which was awarded Gold for Editing at British Arrows, Creative Circle, and Kinsale Sharks. Larrouquère collaborated with director Guy Ritchie on the “Tank Française” campaign for Cartier, starring Rami Malek and Catherine Deneuve. The editor’s other credits include ads for Jacquemus, Oakley, and several films with Diesel, with the film “Francesca,” directed by Rousselet, receiving a Silver Award for Editing at Cannes Lions and D&AD.
Early on in his career as an intern at the music video production house FOKAL, Larrouquère cut a music video for Rohff, one of France’s biggest hip-hop artists at the time. Since then, Larrouquère has edited numerous music videos for artists Woodkid, DJ Snake, The Blaze, and a video from Pharrell Williams, 21 Savage, and Tyler The Creator for their song “Cash In Cash Out.” The music video was another collaboration between Larrouquère and director Rousselet and was awarded a Black Pencil in Music at D&AD.
“So stoked to be joining the Final Cut fam, the work they’ve been doing for the last decade has really inspired me as a storyteller, and I am thrilled now to be a part of the team,” says Larrouquère. “ I look forward to bringing my piece to this magnificent puzzle and can’t wait to hang out at the U.S. offices.”
Sarah Roebuck, executive producer at Final Cut NY, said, “I’ve been a huge fan of Nicolas’ work for the last few years, so I was absolutely thrilled when he decided to join Final Cut. Simply put, he has a killer reel, and he’s the perfect fit for our company.”
