Cabin Editing Company today announced that award-winning editor Nik Kohler has joined its roster. Based in Berlin, Kohler was just named to the 2022 Young Guns winners list celebrating creative professionals under 30. Available to work globally, Kohler is the latest addition to Cabin’s newly-launched London outpost, which is also home to editors Emma Backman, Carla Luffe, Dylan Edwards, Robert Lopuski, and Sam Ostrove.
Kohler’s approach is heavily influenced by music and sound design, building unexpected connections between image and sound to tell impactful stories. He previously worked as a freelance editor on commercials, collaborating with top directors such as Marcus Ibanez, Jonas Lindstroem, Sheila Johansson, Niclas Larsson, Stef Soho, and Amara Abbas. He has cut campaigns for international brands including Audi, BMW, Bumble, Doctors Without Borders, H&M, Kia, LG, Vodafone, Vogue, and more. His recent film “The Wish” for German supermarket brand Penny earned numerous accolades and shortlists for editing, including from Cannes Lions, Ciclope, ADC Global, the Clios, the One Show, and others. Beyond ad work, he has also written and directed short films, and is very experienced in cutting film trailers for international studios such as Warner Bros. and Amazon.
“Nik is a rising star who has built an impressive and varied portfolio at a young age. His collaborative approach to storytelling and his innate creativity embody all the things we value at Cabin, and we’re thrilled to have him join our new and growing European office, said Carla Luffe, partner and editor at Cabin Europe.
“I've admired many of the editors on Cabin's roster and being part of it now just feels great," shared Kohler. "I'm excited to work at a place that really supports creativity and dedication to the craft first and has created a global infrastructure that allows its editors to thrive."
