Closing: November 24th 2017

Trim is the cutting rooms of partners Paul Hardcastle, Tom Lindsay and Dominic Leung. We are based in East London, where we have been cutting commercials, music videos and films since 2004.

Our small, dedicated team has been slowly growing over the past few years and we find ourselves busier than ever and lucky enough to work with some of the most exciting directors in the world today.

Trim is a warm, respectful, creative environment that values the development of the team culture as highly as our editing craft.

Our main focus is to find an addition to our busy production department who complements and supports the team.

We aim to keep our team diverse, and we value integrity, excellence and a commitment to learning and growth.
