Cut+Run has added editor Eric Argiro whose credits include The North Face’s “Question Madness,” winner of a Cannes Bronze Lion for Film Craft--Editing in 2017, New Balance’s “Anthem,” Citibank’s “Surfer” and the Zayn Malik “A Whole New World” music video with more than 122 million hits to date.
“I have known Eric for a decade and followed his career closely as he developed into an amazing editor,” says Cut+Run partner/editor Gary Knight. “He’s thoughtful and engaging and willing to take chances in order to elevate each project. I know he’ll fit right in at Cut+Run and enhance everything he’s involved with.”
Argiro said he was drawn to Cut+Run on several fronts, including its reputation, his trusted friend Knight and managing director Lauren Hertzberg.
Argiro is an advertising industry anomaly, having worked on Wall Street before translating his life-long passion for creativity into a career. Trading during the day, Argiro took night classes at The School for Visual Arts, where he studied motion design, animation and graphic design, and created shortform narrative projects. Argiro’s appreciation of the power of editing ultimately became his profession, first at Blue Rock, then at V2 and Union Editorial, earning awards and recognition along the way. His talent for uniting moments to deliver impactful edits is matched with his passion for sound design and music.
Argiro is based in New York and available throughout the Cut+Run network and on location. The company has studios in London, New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco and Austin.
