- NEW YORK
Editor Nate Pence, based in Chicago, has joined TwoPoint0, the company launched in fall 2015 by co-founders Wendy Rosen and Anthony Marinelli. Working successfully in the New York market, TwoPoint0 now extends its reach to the Midwest with the addition of Pence.
“Anthony and I are excited to expand TwoPoint0’s roster to Chicago,” said Rosen. “We feel Nate is the perfect editor to launch this venture. Nate’s reel speaks for his talent and skill. Whether it’s storytelling or design-based work, his editorial sensibility shines through.”
Pence began his career at Whitehouse Post in Los Angeles and along the way has made stops at Beast, Digital Kitchen and Conspiracy, which was his last roost prior to joining TwoPoint0. Especially drawn to design-based and docu-style projects, he’s worked internationally, on both coasts and on sets, in hotel rooms and motor homes and all points in between. With over a decade in postproduction he’s been a part of many notable campaigns including for The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, Intel, the Chicago Cubs and the first global efforts for Sailor Jerry Rum.
“We had a fantastic experience working with Nate,” said AJ Hassan, executive creative director for R/GA. “He’s a great storyteller and has an impeccable eye for detail. We appreciated his collaborative style, it made the whole process a pleasure.”
Jason Mann, creative director at Havas, noted: “The best thing about working with Nate is that you get much more than a top-notch editor. He had a point of view about every element of our projects that helped enhance each one of them.”
Director Ky Dickens of Story related, “Nate edited a piece that I directed for Koval Distillery. Nate offers the perfect mix of collaboration and idea generating. I love when editors can look at my footage and understand the story I hope to tell, while offering their own fresh perspective and voice. Nate has a great eye, a commitment to honest storytelling and quality, and a knack for timing and juxtaposition that makes him a joy to work with on creative endeavors.”
Pence is currently editing a Groupon campaign via O’Keefe, Reinhard & Paul, Chicago. With its move into the Midwest market, TwoPoint0 plans on continuing to expand into other cities in the near future. Depending upon the clients and projects’ needs, TwoPointO is able to work with production and post partners they have known for years to find the right studio space and post services that are needed.
“Joining forces with TwoPoint0 is really exciting,” concluded Pence. “As the editorial business evolves, it’s crucial to be able to adapt and have more flexibility. The post model that Wendy and Anthony are pioneering makes so much sense and I’m fired up we’re on each others’ team.”
TwoPoint0 features the talents of editors Rosen, Marinelli, Pence, David Cornman, Charlie Cusumano, Jane Keller, John Marinis, Debbie McMurtrey, Keith Olwell, Jon Rosen, Jón Stefánsson, and Terence Ziegler.
