AWARDED: BEST IN CRAFT (EDITING)

Uber Eats ‘Uber Eats Awards’
IDIDTHAT Guest Judge: Suhana Gordhan, Executive Creative Director at Duke Group, Cape Town
IDIDTHAT Guest Judge: Karien Cherry, Director at Giant Films
Suhana’s comment: ‘The Uber Eats work is a perfect example of the way craft becomes crucial in bringing an idea to life. The editing on this piece was impeccable. While the idea of dubbing is not new, the timing, footage research and editing choices were spot on, making the work hellava fun, humorous and rewatchable.’
Karien’s comment: ‘I’ll admit to being jealous when I saw this campaign! It was little consolation to find out there was no director on this (only brilliant copywriters who are coming for my job..!) – which only makes the Best in Craft for Saki’s editing role even more deserved. Anyone who has ever attempted any kind of stock footage job knows the nightmarish, jigsaw-like process they would have had to embrace – so to end up with something that makes me laugh out loud is a testament to their craft. Well done.’
