Production and post house Optimus has added editor Jon Hopp to its roster. Hopp has been expressing his visual creativity through film and photography for over 22 years. After making his mark in Canada, Hopp relocated to Los Angeles where he created editorial shop. He also had tenures at Rock Paper Scissors and Whitehouse Post, cutting commercials for such directors as Erich Joiner (GM/Buick), Mike Maguire (Orbit Gum) and Phil Morrison (Volkswagen) and agencies including Leo Burnett, BBDO Detroit, RPA and Publicis.
After a brief hiatus from editing, Hopp set his sights on returning to the editing suite. He met with Optimus president Tom Duff and EP/managing director Therese Hunsberger to explore opportunities at Optimus’ growing Santa Monica location and felt the company was the ideal fit.
Throughout his career, Hopp has been the recipient of numerous editorial awards including best editing finalist at the London International Awards, best editing at the New York Film Festival Awards and multiple Bessies from the Television Bureau of Canada.
