LONDON — Okay Studio (okaystudio.co.uk), the Dalston-based company specializing in offline editing, color grading, VFX and finishing, has signed editor Charles Gamble to its growing roster of talent. Since graduating from his studies of film, Gamble has lent his talents to spots for the likes of Nike and New Balance. He showcased his comedic timing for Old Spice’s 2022 Webby award-winning Curls Are Cool, which was directed by Prettybird’s Yousef. Beyond his commercial portfolio, Gamble has worked on Kai Blamey’s short film
Feel, and music videos for Aitch, Paloma Faith and Sam Fender.
“Charles and our team worked together on a few projects last year and it became obvious pretty fast just how far ahead he was from a pure edit skill point of view,” recalls Okay founder and managing director Nikolaj Belzer. “After seeing him work in the suite alongside clients, and getting to know him better, we realized he had all the parts needed to really push through. Add to that a work ethic that is second to none, and we knew he’d be perfect for the Okay team. We are over the moon to have him on board.”
“As soon as I was introduced to the Okay setup and ethos, I knew it was for me,” adds Gamble. “It was great to feel the support and guidance from (the team) from the very beginning of our first discussion. I look forward to working on many more creative projects with the Okay family and further developing my craft.”
