NEW YORK CITY — Uppercut (http://uppercutedit.com) has promoted Tyler Horton to editor, after spending two years as an assistant editor at the creative editorial shop. This marks the first internal talent promotion for Uppercut.
Horton first joined the studio in 2017 after a stint as an assistant editor at Whitehouse Post. As an editor, he recently cut Nike’s “Letters to Heroes” campaign, in conjunction with the US Open, that highlights young athletes meeting their role models, including Serena Williams and Naomi Osaka. He has also cut campaigns for Asics, Hypebeast, Volvo and MoMA.
“From the beginning, Uppercut was always intentionally a boutique studio that embraced a collaborative of visions and styles - never just a one person shop,” explains Uppercut executive producer Julia Williams. “Tyler took initiative from Day 1 to be as hands-on as possible with every project and we’ve been proud to see him really grow and refine his own voice. We’re thrilled to see him take on a more hands-on creative role with our clients.”
“The cohesive visual style and overall vibe that Uppercut has established really falls in line with my rhythm and vision as an editor,” adds Horton. “I’ve learned so much by working with all the talented editors here and I’m excited to continue cutting great work for Uppercut.”
Originally from Scottsdale, AZ, Horton’s love of film was sparked at an early age, inspired by an appetite for watching sports reels and highlight videos. He went on to study film editing before hitting the road to tour with his band for four years. Returning to his passion for film, Horton has come full circle, contributing his rhythmic talents to drive the cuts of his continued areas of passion: sports and action.
