Creative editorial shop Uppercut has added London-based editor Billy Mead to its roster for his first U.S. representation. Mead joins Uppercut with over two decades of experience as an editor in London, bringing with him a subtle approach to emotive storytelling that has earned him numerous global industry accolades. Mead has worked on spots for brands including Volvo, Domino’s, Google, Intel, and YouTube. 

Mead learned his craft hands-on, working under the tutelage of renowned industry creative Walter Campbell while getting his start on the agency side at AMV BBDO. He shifted to continue working with Campbell at his own agency CDD, fine-tuning his editorial skills while collaborating with some of the top directors in the world. His work for Sainsbury’s holiday short film “Christmas in a Day” called for the gargantuan task of cutting together over 300 hours of user-generated content, resulting in a touching piece that earned him a Silver British Arrows Craft Award for “Best Edit.” He currently edits and runs his own boutique editorial shop in London, tenthree, which he has successfully grown over the past 11 years to include a roster of eight editors and a range of award-winning work across commercials and music videos.

“There is a certain synergy of working with a tight-knit group of people where everyone is invested in the same goals and creative vision and celebrates each other’s successes, and that is exactly what Micah (owner/editor Scarpelli) has built at Uppercut,” notes Mead. “I’m looking forward to joining such a collaborative roster of talent to work with U.S. clients.”
