FAH MERRAZ AND AIKA MIYAKE JOIN THE QUARRY.
29 September 2021

Two editors that have enjoyed a “meteoric rise” through the industry ranks have joined The Quarry for representation.

They are Fah Merraz, a Brazilian based in New York, and Aika Miyake, a Japanese drummer-turned-cutter. According to The Quarry's co-founder, Paul Watts, "them working alongside us here in London is a great opportunity".

So, what do Merraz and Miyake each bring to Fitzrovia?


1. Fah Merraz



Fah Merraz is drawn to projects that explore misunderstood communities and LGBT issues. This led to one of the Brazilian's biggest projects to date - a three-minute commercial for Oreo that exudes care in the editing booth.

Now on the books at The Quarry, Merraz says, "I'm super excited to be joining the family and work alongside such an amazing roster. The UK's industry has been so creatively inspiring and I can't wait for what's to come!"



2. Aika Miyake



Born in Japan's Aichi prefecture, Aika Miyake moved to Los Angeles in 2019 and impressed Western clients with her technical know-how and tight sense of rhythm. Who needs a drum kit when you have editing tools?

Miyake explains, "This year marks fifteen years since I picked up a Wacom pen back in Tokyo. Editing is my calling in life and I'm at my happiest when I'm cutting and being challenged by creative projects. I'm excited to work with The Quarry family."
