EDITOR OLLIE BURN JOINS ABSOLUTE
11 July 2022

Post-production studio, Absolute, have strengthened their editing team with the appointment of Ollie Burn, who joins after a five year stint at Big Buoy. The new recruit is as admiring of Absolute as they are of him, so it's surely a match made in heaven... or some kind of weird dating app.

A great example of Ollie's slick editing abilities can be seen in this Lurpak commercial. In under 20", Ollie impressively pulls together a myriad of ways Lurpak can be used. It's fast paced, and brilliantly demonstrates his editing talents.



I still can't quite believe that I get paid to do what I do – experiment and create great work

 ”

Clearly eager to get started in his new job, Ollie comments: “I’ve been a fan of the work Absolute produce for a while and their passion and pride in what they do is already evident. I still can't quite believe that I get paid to do what I do – experiment and create great work, and I’m excited to do this as part of a great team of editors.”


Ollie’s arrival comes at an extremely exciting time as we continue to develop this thriving department.

 ”

Absolute’s MD, Dan Bennett, adds: “Our editorial department has gone from strength-to-strength and we’ve had a busy couple of years cutting work for the advertising, TV, film and music industries. Ollie’s arrival comes at an extremely exciting time as we continue to develop this thriving department.”

You can see more of Ollie Burn's work at the Absolute website where there are also contact details if you want to talk to them about him.
