NEW YORK CITY — Editor Kamila Daurenova has joined the roster at Cut+Run (cutandrun.com), and will be available for collaborations nationally and internationally. Born and raised in Qazaqstan, Daurenova moved to New York to pursue her passion for film. After studying film at NYU Tisch, she worked as an assistant editor at MTV and Saturday Night Live before being promoted to editor at Forager. She has since lent her talent to projects for Levi’s, Nike, Snapchat, Puma, Cricket Wireless, Vans and Under Armour.
“Kamila has a depth and dimension which shines through her work,” says Lauren Hertzberg, managing partner, Cut+Run NY. “Her editing style is captivating and expressive, and we are so excited to work with her as she continues to create with impact.”
In addition to brand-supported collaborations, Daurenova has a deep commitment to honoring her culture through alliances and projects with fellow Qazaq artists.
“I was drawn to filmmaking because of the power of visual storytelling as a reflection and amplification of culture and the human experience,” she explains.
A sense of community and a passion for the craft are some of the factors behind her decision to join the studio.
“Cut+Run has been on my radar for a long time, and after meeting everyone, it was evident that it was a great fit,” says the editor. “They emphasize kindness alongside creativity, give their editors amazing support and have built a collaborative environment that I am truly happy to join.”
