Accoladed Editor Aika Miyake Brings Her Unstoppable Creativity To Cut+Run


A creative force beloved by clients for her verve and originality, Aika Miyake brings a natural gift for editing to Cut+Run. Fast, slow, wild, and wonderful -- she can edit it all. A member of Free The Bid, Aika is known for evocative and imaginative work, spanning many genres and styles. Where travel is her inspiration, editing is her life’s calling.

The Tokyo-raised, California-educated Aika Miyake is a former drummer who professes to see edits like rhythms. The result is work that thrums with a heartbeat, with soul. "I am in love with the craft of film editing. Weaving all the beats, movements and feelings together to create a bigger wave is what I live for. The more you edit, the more you learn. Editing has taught me nothing in life is ever completely black or white, and with every project I discover another dimension of this world.  I’m excited to dive into new waters with Cut+Run to see what it will bring to me.”

“Aika is a tremendous creative talent and passionate about the craft of editing,” comments Cut+Run Managing Partner Michelle Eskin. “She brings an interesting perspective from her work in Japan, and we are excited to add another female force to the roster.”

“Aika’s creative energy is infectious and it really shines through in her personality and her work,” agrees Cut+Run LA EP Amburr Farls.  “That energy is what we especially love in her Nike Air Force 1 spot, among other outstanding projects.”

Aika has collaborated with the likes of Wieden + Kennedy, Nike, Dentsu, TBWA, Mercedes Benz, and BMW. Her Nike Air Force 1 “Force” was shortlisted at Cannes for Editing and her “Mom’s first birthday” for Pampers was honored at numerous award shows including Spike, New York Festivals, ACC and Ad Stars.
