LOS ANGELES — Kate Owen is bringing her style, energy and creative versatility to the edit bays of The Den (https://thedeneditorial.com), a woman-owned edit house that launched last year. Owen, who joins as partner/editor, is helping the studio expand to the East Coast.
The UK-born Owen started editing while in her teens, becoming an apprentice to film editor Jim Bambrick at the age of 18. She moved to New York from London a few years later and has since edited an array of projects, ranging from fashion and beauty to lifestyle and entertainment. Some of her credits include work with Gucci, Clinique, Maybelline, Victoria Beckham, Vogue, Adidas, Sony, Showtime and Virgin Atlantic. She has also made a mark in the film world with the BAFTA-nominated short Turning and the Toronto Film Fest selection The Sweetest Sound. She has worked at Wax, Marshall Street Editors, Hooligan and Whitehouse Post.
“I’m naturally inquisitive, which is helpful when it comes to editing,” says Owen. “Editing is a riddle that needs to be solved, and that is very appealing to me. I’m always interested in exploring things from multiple perspectives until you find the perfect approach. I’m very happy to be joining the amazing team at The Den and kicking off this new chapter with some incredible work.”
