Amanda James’ background in fine art led her to find her passion for editing, a passion that lead her straight to Final Cut’s door. She cut her editorial teeth on music videos, honing her ability to tell stories in her own creative way, and has since gone to work many a time on high-profile commercials for Guinness, Facebook, Audi, Virgin Atlantic and M&S to name just a few.
Amanda’s award-winning music video catalogue includes edits for The Rolling Stones, David Bowie, U2, Oasis and Jay-Z. Her work for Jay-Z’s “On To The Next One” directed by Sam Brown won her the Best Editing Award at the UKMVAs. Her personal work extends to many short films, two of which have been nominated for BAFTAs, both in 2016 and 2018.
