U.K. editor Quin Williams has signed with bicoastal editing house Arcade Edit for U.S. representation. This is Williams’ first signing in the States. Across the pond, he is known for being the founding partner of TenThree where he has worked with directors such as Ben Wheatley, Neil Gorringe, James Griffiths, Tom Barbor-Might and Stuart Douglas. Williams has been recognized and awarded for his work with notable brands including Acura, Samsung, Land Rover, McDonalds, Shell and BMW. 

Williams’ signing coincides with the release of the latest Acura TLX campaign which he cut for his longtime collaborator, director Mark Jenkinson of Imperial Woodpecker. Arcade EP/partner Sila Soyer said of the project, “When we worked with Quin on Acura earlier this year, we were struck by his talent and how well he fit in with our culture. It just made sense that we try and figure out a way to work together more often. At first the pandemic put a pause on things, but brought with it the realization that location no longer matters with so much work being done remotely. It was a no-brainer.” 

Williams was born in South Africa and moved to England when he was 12. He wanted to be an artist and studied painting and sculpture at Wimbledon College of Arts. He became fascinated with editing after stumbling upon a 3/4-inch U-matic VTR editor while visiting a friend at work. For the last 27 years he has been involved with filmmaking in one form or another: as a script editor, a writer, a director for music videos, documentaries and shorts. Despite these experiences, editing has always been his main driving passion.
