Taking a Bite Out of Kinsale Sharks

After a lengthy absence, Final Cut attended the Kinsale Sharks as sponsors and returned with a hatful of awards.

The most informal of industry awards, Kinsale this year was certainly an eclectic affair. Industry legends, Dave Dye, Mark Denton, Vicki Maguire, and Vaughan Arnell regaled us with their industry stories. Screenings of award-winning international work displayed the rude health of the creative industries. And networking down the pub with some of our clients, reminded us how much we love this place. (Tom Walker even popped by for an intimate gig!). But it wasn’t all about the Guinness.

Final Cut was thrilled to be named “Edit House of the Year” with New Blood editor Lucy Berry’s Kano ‘Trouble’ winning gold for Best Music Video Editing, Jim Helton’s New York Times ‘The Truth is Worth It’ winning two golds for International Campaign Craft as well as three bronzes for Best International Editing for Joe Guest’s Lacoste ‘Crocodile Inside,’ Amanda James’ Toyota ‘Move Ahead’ and Dan Sherwen’s British Army ‘Resilience’.

Hats off to all the winners and nominees. Sláinte.
