Lost Planet Editorial has brought East Coast-based editor Kenny Shimm aboard its roster. He had previously been working independently as a freelancer.

As an editor, Shimm has contributed to several RIAA Certified (Recording Industry Association of America) Gold and Platinum music videos in the hip hop/rap genre. He’s collaborated with leading artists including A$AP Rocky, Nas, Latto, Lil Uzi Vert, Rich The Kid, Swae Lee, and Beast Coast, lending his cinematic sensibilities and musical ear to underscore each performer’s unique voice. Additionally, Shimm has collaborated with luxury streetwear brand Pyer Moss on several projects, including the musically forward runway film featuring a gospel choir and the company’s couture collection created in partnership with exonerated painter Richard Philips.

Shimm has worked on numerous commercials for brands like Air Jordan, Adidas, Michael Kors, KidSuper, and most recently, Rockstar. Additionally, he edited the sleek black-and-white films for 1800 Cristalino featuring R&B singer Kali Uchis, photographer Gunner Stahl, and famed Mexican soccer player Jonathan Dos Santos. Shimm worked with Netflix on the promo short “Chloe Vietch Tries Love Is Blind,” which blended several of the streamers’ unscripted series and saw him seamlessly match the shows’ signature editing styles.

“Lost Planet is legendary in the world of editing,” remarked Shimm, a multicultural editor who works on both English and Japanese-language projects. “Everyone on the Lost Planet team is incredibly talented. I’ve had the pleasure of meeting founder Hank Corwin, and he’s been extremely supportive and welcoming. I’m honored to be welcomed into the fold, and I can’t wait to get started.”

Casey Cayko, Lost Planet’s executive producer on the East Coast, added, “Kenny has great taste that can’t be taught. He’s tapped into the zeitgeist and innately knows what will grab the audience’s attention. His instincts are always on point. He’s also a wonderful person to work with and a great collaborator.”
