Editor Luke Haigh joins The Butchery

Luke_Haigh_Butchery.jpgThe Butchery has announced that editor Luke Haigh is joining Tim Mauger and Tom Eagles as part of its Kiwi contingent for representation in Australia.

Haigh has cut numerous award winning commercials, music videos, documentaries, short films and feature films.

With a strong background in advertising Haigh has collaborated with many directors on hundreds of commercials. Many of these have been awarded the highest accolades in advertising, including Darryl Ward's 2010 Orcon campaign with Iggy Pop, which was the most awarded work of that year, winning locally and internationally, with a Grand Prix at Cannes Lions topping the list of awards. He has just recently finished cutting a fantastic spot for NZ Lotto titled 'Dylan' with director Mark Albiston from The Sweetshop.
Haigh and Eagles were part of the lead editor team that crafted Taika Waititi's Hunt For The Wilderpeople (2016). The film premiered at Sundance Film Festival in 2016. A huge success at the NZ box office, it smashed records for the highest grossing New Zealand film of all time & biggest opening weekend at the box office.

The kiwi juggernaut continues with Tim Mauger being awarded a silver for editing at this years AXIS awards in New Zealand.  The spot for McDonald's titled 'How Very Un-McDonalds' was directed by The Sweetshop's Noah Marshall. It was the highest level award given out on the night for this category, and the only silver. It is also a finalist at AWARD.

Tom Eagles is taking a small break from commercials and is currently cutting feature The Breaker Uppers, written and directed by Madeleine Sami and Jackie Van Beek which is garnering a lot of interest across the ditch.

All of these clever gents are available for projects within Australia. Contact EP Freya Maddock freya@thebutchery.com.au.
