Editor Adriana Legay joins Final Cut
People on the Move
- NEW YORK
Creative editorial house Final Cut has added editor Adriana Legay to its roster.
Growing up in a multi-cultural family in Paris, Legay’s earliest passions of music and dance would form the creative foundations from which she continues to draw inspiration. A chance meeting at the age of 14 with Jean Baptist Mondino, who was directing a Vanessa Paradis video, confirmed Legay’s desire to work in film. While studying cinematography at ERSA in Paris, she began training on Avid and soon began working as an editor on music videos for artists such as Sean Paul, Major Lazer, and The Blaze.
She has gone on to be active in fashion brands including Dior, Givenchy, Yves Saint Laurent, and Dolce & Gabbana. Legay had the opportunity to work with Mondino, her idol, as an on-set editor for a Dolce & Gabbana film featuring Gisele Bündchen.
Legay’s other commercial credits include campaigns for Apple, Diesel, Heineken, Canal+, Orange, Burger King, and Paco Rabanne. Legay has collaborated with such notable directors as Francois Rousselet, Martin Werner, Megaforce, James Gray, Alex Courtes, Simon Levene, Terrence Neale, and Bart Timmer.
Legay joins other recent additions at Final Cut including editors Antonio Gómez-Pan and Sam Bould, as well as U.S. managing director Justin Brukman. Final Cut has offices in London, New York, and Los Angeles.
