Kick starting the new year with good news, Ben Corfield is now a fully fledged editor on the Stitch roster.
Having joined the edit house as a Homespun editor a year ago, Ben has been working hard on a range of projects. He’s just cut a film for Leica, directed by Barney Cokeliss, involving 105 hours of footage for a 2 min spot and, at the end of last year, he cut the Sam Smith and Calvin Harris Promises documentary exploring the art of voguing, directed by the award winning Emil Nava.
Stitch co-owner and editor, Tim Hardy is full of praise for Ben and comments: “We are so happy to have Ben on board as a commercials editor now, not only is he a fantastic editing talent but has a brilliant personality, it’s great having him around.”
Ben’s initial interest in editing was piqued in the early nineties while he was watching Terminator 2 on VHS. Inspired after seeing the T 1000 melt through a metal prison gate Ben knew then that he somehow wanted to get into film. On the craft itself, Ben explains his job, “I get to work on the best part of the process as I put it all together to create the finished piece. It’s always a privilege to work closely with the director during the edit and see his or her vision in its final form.
I’ve already been lucky enough to work with numerous inspirational editors and directors, much of the way I work now is down to what I’ve learnt from them. It’s fantastic to be on the on the Stitch roster, super exciting times ahead!”
