London-based The Assembly Rooms has promoted Edward Cooper to editor. He has been at this seven-suite Soho-based studio since 2011, where he has been steadily making the progression from assistant editor to editor. When he first joined, Cooper cut his teeth on music videos like Nimmo’s Unyoung. Promos for Jake Bugg, Birdy and Donae’O shortly followed.
Recent work includes a TVC for Rubik’s, content for Beats featuring Rag ‘n’ Bone Man, a promo for BBC Sound of 2017 artist Ray BLK and a much more narrative and story-driven video for Jorja Smith’s latest single.
In his new position, Cooper will be building on his current working relationships, growing his list of collaborations and expanding into more commercial work. He works on the Avid Media Composer.
The Assembly Rooms was established in 2004 by Nik Hindson and Sam Rice-Edwards, with Eve Ashwell joining as partner in 2015. They are located in a town house in London’s Soho.
