Editor Aaron Tompkins Joins Arcade As Partner

Editorial collective Arcade is thrilled to welcome Editor Aaron Tompkins to the family as their newest Partner. With a great sense of storytelling across all genres, spanning from comedy to dynamic visual pieces and documentaries, his work shines in Emmy- and Lion-winning global ad campaigns for brands like Ford, Fox Sports, IBM, Google, Budweiser, Nike, and others. Beyond his commercial work, Aaron has contributed his talents to long-form documentaries like Netflix’s "Killer Inside: The Mind of Aaron Hernandez.” 

“Aaron is like the work equivalent of those people you meet and click with right away as if you’ve known each other for ages,” shares Arcade EP/Partner Sila Soyer. “Of course, I have known him for ages but only on a personal level. Despite never collaborating, the synergy feels very familiar.  He’s a good human who also happens to be a talented and versatile Editor.  We’re excited to have him officially be a part of Arcade.” 

Aaron began his career at Silvercup Studios, where he contributed to HBO’s renowned series “The Sopranos” and “Sex in the City.” Later transitioning to post-production, he further developed his skills at Mad River Post in Los Angeles before joining Spot Welders in New York. With a tenure at Rock, Paper, Scissors, Aaron evolved into an accomplished Editor, leading to his most recent role with The Den Editorial. Known for drawing viewers into the emotional essence of films, his storytelling approach can be seen in Lauren Sick’s short film for Ford, “Scary Fast.” Additionally, his editing for Fox Sports during last summer’s FIFA Women’s World Cup has earned him an Emmy nomination.  

"I have known Jeff and Sila for a very long time and have always considered them family,” expresses Aaron. “To have the chance to work alongside them every day with the rest of the company’s talented roster is a blessing. Arcade has been a titan in the industry for years, and I feel lucky to be a part of this next chapter.”
