We’re excited to announce that Nicolas Larrouquère has joined our roster of editors! Raised in the South of France, Nicolas began his storied career recutting trailers with his friends as a teenager, graduated to amateur skate videos, and eventually became the sought-after editor he is today.
Throughout his career, Nicolas has developed a rapport with regular collaborators, including acclaimed directors Manu Cossu, François Rousselet, Pantera, and Jonathan Alric. His recent work with Alric includes Nicolas editing a powerful, heartbreaking campaign for Macmillan with the film “Whatever It Takes.” The spot was awarded Gold for Editing at British Arrows, Creative Circle, Kinsale Sharks, and The Shots Awards. Nicolas collaborated with director Guy Ritchie on the “Tank Française” campaign for Cartier, starring Rami Malek and Catherine Deneuve. His other editorial work in the brand space includes ads for Jacquemus, Oakley, and several films with Diesel, with the film “Francesca,” directed by Rousselet, receiving a Silver Award for Editing at Cannes Lions and D&AD.
Nicolas cuts are smooth and triumphant, masterfully arranging cinematic shots to create a rich emotional landscape dating back to the beginning of his career. As an intern at the music video production house FOKAL, he cut a music video for Rohff, one of France’s biggest hip-hop artists at the time. Since then, Larrouquère has edited numerous music videos for artists Woodkid, DJ Snake, The Blaze, and a video from Pharrell Williams, 21 Savage, and Tyler The Creator for their song “Cash In Cash Out.” The music video was another collaboration between Nicolas and director François Rousselet and was awarded a Black Pencil in Music at D&AD.
“So stoked to be joining the Final Cut fam, the work they’ve been doing for the last decade has really inspired me as a storyteller, and I am thrilled now to be a part of the team,” says Nicolas. “ I look forward to bringing my piece to this magnificent puzzle and can’t wait to hang out at the US offices.”
Sarah Roebuck, Executive Producer at Final Cut NY, says of Nicolas, “I’ve been a huge fan of Nicolas’ work for the last few years, so I was absolutely thrilled when he decided to join Final Cut. Simply put, he has a killer reel, and he’s the perfect fit for our company. We’re excited to have him on board!”
