Coming up in the ranks is junior editor Joan Gill Amorim, who has cut this beautiful experimental film for director Natasja Fourie.

Fourie notes that 'Motherhood is an experimental film exploring the representation of the mother figure as both a sexual being and a lifeline for her child' and that in the film she wanted to 'challenge long-held stereotypes and sentimental views of motherhood by looking at the body and the identity of the mother'.

Jake Bugg’s back working with Michael Holyk in a new video cut by Edward Cooper.

Since directing Jake’s debut promo, Michael and Jake have repeatedly shot together over the years and they’ve reunited again for ‘Love, Hope & Misery’. The video was inspired by Bill Withers’ performance of 'Ain't No Sunshine' on the iconic BBC show ‘The Old Grey Whistle Test’ back in 1972.

Produced by Academy and shot on 16mm Michael kept it handheld for a raw, classic feeling. It’s a beautiful video for a beautiful song. Have a listen.
