We worked really hard on this film. We knew we had something that was quite special, but it’s funny because you always have that uncertainty. It’s great in the room, but what will other people think? The label were really happy. We’re actually doing the next Chaka Khan video, which Thomas Grove Carter (another Trim editor) is cutting, together with director Sam Pilling at Pulse Films. It looks cool. It’s a totally different thing.
Kim was very involved in the edit, which I love about her. You spend so much time together, you become really close. It was so fun working together. Kim knows a lot about editing and she’s good conceptually. She’s always pushing things in the edit to get the best out of the footage.
I’ve had quite a lot of good feedback on this. Even from people who don’t know about editing – it just feels edited because things are moving and it’s snappy. I’ve actually had a lot of people that aren’t really filmmakers hit me up saying, “Oh, the edit on that’s so good.” I think people loved it so much because it’s got that millennial feel. It’s jumpy, GIF-y, energetic.
