Kool Deep has over a decade of experience in the trailer industry.
Born and raised in the vibrant movie capital of India – Mumbai, he was influenced by movies and music from a very young age. He started experimenting with cutting visuals from one music video with the soundtrack of another, and the result was eye opening. He could combine two of his passions (music and movies) by becoming an editor.
After moving to the US, he went to Columbia College Chicago and got a degree in Interactive Media, during which he also learnt Avid, Final cut pro, film history and the theory of editing.
After interning in the Creative Services department at WGN Television, where he wrote copy for promos and produced a TV spot, he moved to LA and landed an entry level job at Hammer Creative. He stayed late to learn the systems, volunteered on projects and quickly rose through the ranks within two years, to finally become an Editor.
At Hammer, while working his way up, he had the opportunity to work as an online editor on award-winning films like BROKEBACK MOUNTAIN, GOODNIGHT AND GOODLUCK, and ONCE.
As a Trailer Editor, he worked on some of the biggest gaming franchises like BATMAN: ARKHAM series, BIOSHOCK, ASSASIN’S CREED, SAINTS ROW, FINAL FANTASY, MORTAL KOMBAT X and many more, garnering numerous nominations and awards.
Now after 16 years in the US, Kuldeep has decided to move back to Mumbai and start the next phase of his career. To lend and apply his years of experience to filmmakers, distributors, TV Networks and trailer agencies on a global scale.
No matter how big or small the project is, the goal and mission is simple:
“To create the best trailer possible within it’s timeframe, budget and resources.”
