Blue Table Post is thrilled to announce the addition of award-winning editor Lorraine Paul to its roster of multifaceted creatives. A diversity advocate and dedicated mentor, Lorraine’s international flair and eye for detail can be seen in entertainment campaigns for networks such as HBO, BBC America, AMC Networks, A+E, NBC Universal, Nickelodeon, and Sundance TV. She’s applied her talent to numerous noted campaigns including “House of The Dragon,” “Insecure,” “Barry,” and “Manifest.” Her passion for editing has also led to work with advertising agencies worldwide including McGarryBowen, Y&R, JWT, McCann, Saatchi & Saatchi, TBWA, and Grey.
“Lorraine is an incredible talent whose extensive work in the promo world is the perfect connector between Blue Table’s work in features and series, and our advertising collaborations,” notes Blue Table Post Founder/Editor Oliver Lief. “While she’s a powerhouse in entertainment, Lorraine’s storytelling ability is not limited to any genre, length or style. Her talent is matched with an innate ability to really connect with people and an unyielding curiosity.”
“I like working with people who are passionate about what they do and the projects they want to create, and to bring my own unique lens to that experience,” Lorraine explains. “There are very few places that encourage creativity in many forms – and Blue Table is where people share a sense of excitement around exploration.”
Indeed, Lorraine’s story is as interesting as those she’s helped to tell. Born in Australia to Indian parents, she grew up in the cultural melting pot of Mumbai. A formative memory of seeing the city pause to watch the Sunday night Hindi movie, broadcast weekly on local television, drew her to cinema. She then attended Curtin University in Australia where she majored in Film and Television Production and Journalism. A multilingual creative who has also worked and lived in Italy and the US, Lorraine has embraced global experiences that have contributed to her unique and refreshing perspective on editing. With a start in the movie trailer industry in Hollywood, Lorraine’s career has been a vibrant expression of creativity and diversity in many forms both on screen and behind the scenes.
“Throughout my career, I have held firm to the conviction that one’s success can only be evaluated in context to how we bring others up with us,” Lorraine concludes. “That’s very connected to what and who we put on the screen and approach the craft. Editing can support a vision, convey emotion, and bring people together – and that is an ongoing source of inspiration.”
