Editor, Final Cut
Growing up in a multi-cultural family in Paris, Final Cut editor Adriana Legay’s earliest passions of music and dance would form the creative foundations from which she continues to draw inspiration. When editing, Legay feels as if she’s dancing. After selecting a track with a captivating beat for the session, she begins to assemble an intricate visual choreography. Seductive. Rhythmic. Passionate. With captivating pace and clever transitions, the vibrancy and energy of Legay’s work enthralls and transports viewers from the first frame to the last.
A chance meeting at the age of 14 with Jean Baptist Mondino, who was directing a Vanessa Paradis video, confirmed Legay’s desire to work in film. While studying cinematography at ERSA in Paris, she began training on AVID and soon began working as an editor on music videos for artists such as Sean Paul, Major Lazer, and The Blaze. Along the way, she has since built an unsurpassed reputation in the intersecting worlds of high-fashion and beauty, leading to regular engagements with fashion brands including Dior, Givenchy, Yves Saint Laurent, and Dolce & Gabbana. Her other commercial credits include top advertising campaigns for Apple, Diesel, Heineken, Canal+, Orange, Burger King, and Paco Rabanne. Legay is highly esteemed by A-List directors, having collaborated with Francois Rousselet, Martin Werner, Megaforce, James Gray, Alex Courtes, Simon Levene, Terrence Neale, and Bart Timmer.
