After a year as an editor at Homespun, Stitch's music video and content division, Ben Corfield has now been promoted to fully fledged commercials editor on the Stitch roster from the start of 2019.
At Homespun Corfield has been working on a range of projects, including a film for Leica, directed by Barney Cokeliss, involving turning 105 hours of footage into a 2 min spot. At the end of 2018 he also cut the Sam Smith and Calvin Harris Promises documentary, directed by Emil Nava, which explores the art of voguing.
Stitch co-owner and editor, Tim Hardy says: “We are so happy to have Ben on board as a commercials editor now. Not only is he a fantastic editing talent but has a brilliant personality. It’s great having him around.”
A delighted Corfield adds: “I get to work on the best part of the process as I put it all together to create the finished piece. It’s always a privilege to work closely with the director during the edit and see his or her vision in its final form.
"I’ve already been lucky enough to work with numerous inspirational editors and directors, much of the way I work now is down to what I’ve learnt from them. It’s fantastic to be on the on the Stitch roster, super exciting times ahead!”
