Video Editing firm The Editors has bolstered its senior roster with the signing of Mark Burnett, who is returning home to Australia after nine years of cutting in London.
Launching his career in Sydney, working at The Post Office before joining The Editors back in 2007, Burnett moved to London in 2009 to edit at Speade, joining The Whitehouse in 2014 alongside legendary editors John Smith and Russell Icke.
Nicoletta Rousianos, executive producer at The Editors, said: “We are ecstatic to welcome back home one of our finest editors and can’t wait to get stuck into exciting local projects with him at our side.”
Commenting on his return, Burnett said: “After nine years in the UK and after many long winters, many teas, many pints, many new friends, a child, a lot of travel and a bit of whinging, the time felt right to head home.
“It made sense to head back to the company that has always been a home away from home, and I am stoked to be welcomed back to The Editors and to be surrounded by not only amazing talent, but amazing people.”
