Nomad in London has added James Norris as editor and partner. A self-taught, natural editor, James started out running for the likes of Working Title, Partizan and Tomboy Films. He then moved to Whitehouse Post as an assistant where he refined his craft and rose through the ranks to become an editor.
Over the past 15 years, he’s worked across commercials, music videos, features and television. Norris edited Ikea’s Fly Robot Fly spot and Asda’s Get Possessed piece, and has recently cut a new project for Nike. Working within television and film, he also cut an episode of the BAFTA-nominated drama Our World War and feature film We Are Monster.
“I was attracted to Nomad for their vision for the future and their dedication to the craft of editing. They have a wonderful history but are also so forward-thinking and want to create new, exciting things. The New York and LA offices have seen incredible success over the last few years, and now there’s Tokyo and London too. On top of this, Nomad feels like home already. They’re really lovely people — it really does feel like a family.”
Norris will be cutting on Avid Media Composer at Nomad.
