Republic Editorial has added Flame artist/colorist Bryan Bayley and creative editor Shaddai Berron. The two joined the team in early summer and have already collaborated on several projects, including a recent campaign for Dolce & Gabbana featuring DJ Khalid and PJ Tucker.

A skilled technical and creative artist, Bayley brings his years of experience working on brands such as Home Depot, Ram Trucks, Coors and Toyota. He was most recently the lead Flame artist at across town shop Treehouse Editorial, a shop which he was instrumental in launching back in 2012. Prior to that, Bayley helped Dallas based Reel FX/Radium grow their commercial divisions, in addition to working on music videos, feature films, special attractions and branching into AR/VR. In 2011, he worked on Katy Perry’s “Firework”  which won the MTV Video Music Award for video of the year.

“Bryan is the ideal artist to add to our expanding finishing team right now,” said Republic partner and sr. editor Chris Gipson. “Not only does he have the experience and talent to run any project solo, but he also thrives in a collaborative environment, working well with the other artists on our team.“ Bayley joins Republic’s other Flame artist and colorist, Nick Mueth, in heading up its finishing department.

“I’d only heard great things about Republic since its partners bought out Red Car back in 2013,“ said Bayley. “Their continued growth in recent years with the addition of sister company Infinite Fiction for design and Threaded Pictures for production made a big impact in this town. When I heard about their plans for further expanding their Finishing division, I knew I had an opportunity I couldn’t pass up.”

A native of Dallas, Berron also joins Republic from Treehouse Editorial, where she worked her way up from assistant to editor in only a few short years. With a fluency in English and Spanish, she’s cultivated a diverse reel of national work for clients ranging from Dr. Pepper to Kia to Home Depot. Whether cutting long format docu-style projects or short-form heavy effects work, “Shady” (as she’s known in town) uses her down to earth personality to create a comfortable collaborative space for creatives to craft their message.

“I’ve been following Shady’s trajectory for a good while now,” said Republic partner and sr. editor Keith James. “In the few short years she’s been editing, she’s proved herself capable of tackling a wide variety of creative projects each with a very distinctive approach. And it goes without saying that with a fluency in Spanish, she’s going to continue to flourish in our market.”

Berron joins Republic’s roster of editors which includes Gipson, James, William Franklin, Andy McGee and Susan Munro. Berron said, “The partners have been super supportive of my vision for growth as an editor, and their addition of Bryan made the transition really smooth for myself and my clients.”
