Lions Success for Final Cut at Cannes

There were plenty of reasons to be cheerful at the first Cannes Lions in three years, but the Final Cut contingent celebrated the return to la Croisette with Gold and Bronze awards for Editing, amongst other big wins for work cut at our London & US offices.

At Tuesday’s Film Craft awards, Amanda James won a Gold Lion for her work on Channel 4 Paralympics “Super. Human.” – directed by Bradford Young with Somesuch & Serial Pictures for 4Creative. Dan Sherwen was awarded Bronze for his work on The New York Times “The Truth Takes a Journalist” – directed by Camille Summers-Valli with Somesuch for Droga5.

“Super. Human” also nabbed the festival’s most coveted trophy, the Film Grand Prix, and in the Entertainment category, the Grand Prix for music went to Residente “This is Not America,” cut by Arriana Tommasetig and directed by Gregory Ohrel with Doomsday. The Silver award for Excellence in Music Videos went to Nego Bala “SONHO,” cut by Lucas Moesch and directed by Douglas R Bernardt with Stink, and Dan’s “The Truth Takes a Journalist” was also awarded Bronze in Film.

Massive congratulations to all our editors & creative collaborators!
