- LOS ANGELES
Zoe Schack has been promoted to editor at Final Cut where she began working as an assistant editor three years ago. She is based in the company’s L.A. office.
Schack honed her craft under the mentorship of Final Cut editors Crispin Struthers, Joe Guest, Jeff Buchanan, and Rick Russell. Schack has edited branded content and commercials for Audi, Infiniti, Doritos, and Dollar Shave Club as well as music videos for Swae Lee and Whitney Woerz. Schack has already worked with leading directors including Dougal Wilson, Ava DuVernay, Michel Gondry, Craig Gillespie, and Steve Ayson.
“It’s been amazing watching Zoe’s growth the last few years,” said Final Cut executive producer Suzy Ramirez. “She’s so meticulous, always doing a deep dive into the footage. Clients love working with her because she makes the process fun. She’s grown here at Final Cut so much already under the guidance of our editors, and her craft keeps evolving.”
Originally from a small hamlet north of New York, Schack studied film at RISD and NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts. Her love for documentaries led her to intern with renowned filmmaker Albert Maysles and then on to produce the Bicycle Film Festival in Portland, Oregon. She edited several short documentaries and a pilot series that were featured in many film festivals.
Final Cut maintains offices in London, New York and L.A.
