On the heels of opening its doors this fall, Santa Monica-based creative editing and VFX boutique Cabin Editing Company has brought on Sam Ostrove as partner/editor. He has won such honors as Cannes Lions, AICE Best In Show, AICP Show and Clios.
During his prior tenure at Cut + Run, Ostrove’s credits spanned multiple projects for Adidas, work for Volvo, Beats, the Grammys, Mercedes-Benz, NBA 2K and Converse, as well as music videos for Run the Jewels and Jay-Z/Damian Marley. Along the way, Ostrove has collaborated with renowned directors including Gustav Johannson, Brian Beletic, Karim Huu Do, Rohan Blair-Mangat and Stacy Wall.
Ostrove said of his new roost, ““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. 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.”
