Nick Kyriakides – Editor
Who is Nick Kyriakides?
Creative by nature. Positive and passionate problem-solver, always focused on understanding clients’ needs and pushing the creative boundaries. When I’m not in post production I’m a certified NLP Master (Neuro Linguistic Programming) and also the co-founder of a charity endorsing kindness.
How did your career path develop?
In the wonderful world of freelancing, my career really developed after my first job as head of post for a short film that won the ‘filmaka’ competition in the US.
From then on I worked on several music videos for EMI records and Century Media which were broadcast internationally and I did compositing on a short film that was in the official selection for Cannes 2009.
I have ventured into many fashion, commercial and corporate roles that have allowed the development of my editing, visual effects, motion graphics, compositing, and grading skills.
What do you consider your greatest achievement/s so far?
With so many incredible opportunities it’s difficult to choose just one. I was very proud to have done the entire post production on the official Anti-Bullying films for the nation for 3 years in a row. Working on a Cannes’ official selection was a very cool experience too. Flying to Bahrain to film and work on the entire post production for the official Formula One commercial was a stand-out moment.
Any projects you are most proud of and why?
I feel all projects I work on I’m proud to have had the opportunity to be part of. I’m particularly enthusiastic for those that are seen by millions of people, like the music video for Paradise Lost’s ‘Faith Divides Us Death Unites Us’, which is their highest viewed to date.
Share your biggest lessons in life and work
I feel I’m still on the journey and always curious to learn and explore more both personally and creatively. Something I would encourage everyone to do is to be endlessly curious and experience as much as possible both personally and professionally. Your passions inform your professional life and vice versa. The more you discover, develop and cultivate your core values and beliefs, the more you’ll understand your calling in life.
Also, have fun and be grateful every day. Even during those stressful times under tight deadlines, gratitude is key to get you through any situation. In a nutshell, do what you love and love what you do.
