Boutique postproduction shop WAX has brought New York-based commercial and film editor Alex Pirrone aboard its roster.

Most recently, Pirrone edited Ford’s multi-part, long-form series, “Mustang Mach-E v Everything,” through post house Friendshop!, his roost prior to WAX. Pirrone’s other most notable campaigns include Seinhessier’s “Athlete” (directed by Sam Pilling) for the MOMENTUM III Wireless, IBM’s “Dear Tech,” and Kraken Rum’s “A Tale Well Told.” The latter was short-listed for an AICP Post Award. Beyond advertising, he has also been involved in work such as the short documentary Màs Fuerte, which was directed by Sean Frank and garnered an official selection at the Brooklyn Film Festival, as well as A Girl in the River: The Price of Forgiveness, which won the Best Documentary (Short Subject) Oscar in 2016. Pirrone was an associate editor on A Girl in the River, which was directed by Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy, with Geof Bartz serving as editor.

WAX founder and executive producer Toni Lipari described Pirrone as “an incredibly talented editor whose creative ability is evident in everything he cuts. What ultimately separates him from most in the editing community, and makes him a perfect fit at WAX, is that he’s deeply involved during the ideation stage, which allows him to get wholly immersed in a production before anything’s even filmed. He’s an amazing cultural fit to our team as we continue to strengthen our capabilities.”
