TOBY ABBOTTToby graduated in Photography Film and TV in 1990 and started his career in Post Production at SVC Television when tape was still on a one-inch spool. A period in broadcast television saw him work on Channel 4’s award winning Big Breakfast and the rather more notorious late night show The Word. He has since worked at some of London’s top post production companies working on many award winning commercial, documentary, drama, corporate and feature projects over his career (including a Ciclope or two).
He joined the Cut + Run team in 2008 and was made Managing Director in 2013. The London office has since expanded, diversifying it’s services to include online, vfx, grading, motion graphics and a promos + content division. Cut + Runs foundations have been firmly built on talent and it’s the diverse roster of editorial talent that has seen the company grow exponentially since it was established back in 1997. Toby is keen to continue with this ethos and stresses the importance of maintaining an environment in which talent can be developed and nurtured.
