The editors eye: Nadine Strohhaecker. By K.K.W

"I've always had a passion for art and film and knew I wouldn't settle for a life outside of the arts."

Even without access to camera's, editing software, she took VHS recorders and connected them to her T.V, making films from tapes. It was only a matter of time before she ended up in the editors chair.

Originally from Northern Germany, Nadine Strohhaecker moved to London and discovered digital editing as a new passion, using the university's equipment for her own films [also working tirelessly on many projects in fashion, music and art].

With a clear passion for the field she was lucky enough to work on some great commercial projects. This would not only gain her needed insight, technical and industry-standard know-how, but guide her towards a higher-calling.

"I know advertising can be very restrictive editing-wise. I'm glad to now concentrate on cutting trailers which is a very creative process. I consider it an art form. Maybe it's sometimes over-looked as it's still advertising a product (a TV show or a movie)."

Recently Nadine sent me a link to "The Blues - 'Marion Co Jo 2' " [music video] that she edited, shot by Raphaela Riepl. Its an electric, beautifully disturbing, hypnotic, super-8 piece, that flows at you like synaptic sparks on a foggy night. Strohhaeckers editing is superb; an even, careful approach with obvious control. She brings a balance to the scenes, melding it into a visual story while allowing it to retain its psychedelic intensity. She's got the skillz, the careful touch and a passion for her craft thats totally apparent. And so I'm sure many others, aside from myself, are looking forward to seeing more from her.
