PETE HILLS JOINS WHITEHOUSE POST LONDON.
30 June 2022

If you need a talented editor who's "very dangerous over short distances", Pete Hills is your man. He's also the latest addition at Whitehouse Post, who call the Chelmsford native "nothing but good news".

Editor and Whitehouse bigwig Sam Gunn says: "We've had our eye on Pete for a while now and we're very excited to bring him in. The warmth of his personality and his love for the craft is apparent in his editing—he has a stunning body of work!”


Hills is quick to return the compliment: "The calibre of work coming out of Whitehouse is nothing short of awe-inspiring. Emotionally driven story lines, fast-paced sports, comedy... nothing about Whitehouse is 'one trick pony' and I love that. I want to cut the best of the best, and this is where the best is."


I want to achieve a body of work that's looked back on for decades to come.

 ”

For Hills, Whitehouse is also the place to build a legacy: "I want to make adverts that people remember. I want to make films that people talk about. I get a real kick out of seeing the purpose of an ad, be that inclusivity, diversity, politics, or climate change—whatever the underlying message, create a ripple and a conversation."


"For me," Hills adds, "what I want to achieve is a body of work that's looked back on for decades to come." He may be dangerous over short distances, but Hills is all about the long game.
