SANTA MONICA — Creative editing and VFX boutique Cabin Editing Company (http://cabinedit.com), which opened just this fall, has brought on Sam Ostrove as partner/editor. Ostrove brings a wealth of experience and accolades to Cabin, having spent nearly a decade honing his cutting skills at Cut+Run. His new role at the boutique offers him the opportunity to nurture and manage talent, as well as evolve his own creative capabilities.
“Cabin encourages creative collaboration on all projects and teaching our team everything we’ve all learned along the way, which in turn nurtures great talent,” Ostrove explains. “Personally, I would like to push myself into styles of filmmaking I am not as familiar with, learning that craft from the other editors who are masters of it. The prospect of that is very exciting.“
Ostrove says that his musical background has greatly informed his editing craft, ever since he veered from life as a drummer back in his native England. “Rhythm and music was something I understood when I started to edit, and how they can be used to further tell your story as well as when, and when not to cut.”
His time at Cut+Run included work on multiple projects for Adidas, as well as jobs for Volvo, Beats, the Grammys, Mercedes-Benz, NBA 2K and Converse. Osctove’s music video credits include work for Run the Jewels and Jay-Z/Damian Marley.
“Sam is a phenomenally-talented editor and an even better friend,” says Cabin co-founder/managing partner Carr Schilling. “He is widely recognized as one of the most exciting talents in advertising and music videos and we are extremely happy to have him as a partner and editor at Cabin.”
