Women-owned bicoastal edit house The Den is pleased to announce the addition of editor Ben Entrup to their expanding team. Ben is known for his mastery of creating memorable and emotional story worlds, consistently pushing the boundaries of his medium across commercials, documentaries, and feature films.
Ben grew up in Berlin and was drawn to editing early in his childhood by observing his parents’ work at a radio station, seeing tapes being cut and scripts rearranged. Directors like Ridley Scott and Steven Spielberg then inspired him to want to create worlds out of nothing.
He graduated from the prestigious Filmakademie Baden-Württemberg and began his career at the production company Markenfilm, becoming an editor for the advertising agency Springer & Jacoby shortly afterward. Ben later made his way to the US, interning at Final Cut in Los Angeles and New York. He is the co-founder of the German-Austrian ad agency die freundschaft, which he successfully sold in 2013.
He has travelled the globe on assignments and cut numerous projects for directors including Hanna Maria Heidrich, Reynald Gresset, Martin Aamund, Matthäus Bussmann, Thomas Garber, Søren Schaller, Dorian&Daniel, and Ryan Staake. His credits include campaigns for Apple, Audi, Coca-Cola, Facebook, Fila, Lexus, Mercedes-Benz, Nissan, Sony, and Volkswagen. Recently, he edited the German series Souls, which won two awards at the 2022 Canneseries Festival.
“Editing can be very emotional and when you find the right tonality and rhythm for a piece, it’s remarkably satisfying,” says Ben. “I’ve admired so many of the editors at The Den for a long time and think it is an incredible edit house and new home. I’m thrilled to join this wonderful team and help bringing exciting new projects to life.”
“Ben is an incredibly skilful storyteller,” says Christjan Jordan, co-founder/editor at The Den. “I’ve found myself watching his work repeatedly, enjoying the intricate layers of the films he’s made, like the ones directed by Jared Leto for 30 Seconds To Mars. We’re beyond thrilled to have him join our crew.”view more - Hires, Wins & BusinessThe Den Editorial, Mon, 25 Jul 2022 16:23:03 GMT
