Nate Pence began his career at Whitehouse Post in Los Angeles and along the way has made stops at Beast, Digital Kitchen and Conspiracy. 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 distinguished campaigns including those from 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,” says 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, agrees: "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 notes: "Nate edited a piece that I directed for Koval Distillery,” she explains. “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."
“Joining forces with TwoPoint0 is really exciting,” concludes 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." Pence is currently editing a Groupon campaign via O’Keefe, Reinhard & Paul.
With years of industry experience between them Partner/Executive Producer/Editor Wendy Rosen & Partner/Editor Anthony Marinelli launched TwoPoint0 in Fall 2015. Based on an innovative, new business model, the editorial company and creative collective features the talents of the two founding partners, as well as such luminary Editors as: David Cornman, Charlie Cusumano, Jane Keller, John Marinis, Debbie McMurtrey, Nate Pence, Keith Olwell, Jon Rosen, Jón Stefánsson, and Terence Ziegler.
According to Wendy Rosen & Anthony Marinelli, TwoPoint0 is a collective wherein creative Editors can feel as though they have a home. “It is an answer to the constantly shifting advertising/post-production landscape where more and more highly experienced, talented creative individuals prefer to be in the freelance world, yet still desire administrative, production and promotional support,” explains Rosen.
“We take the post-production model a step beyond the previous four-walling concept,” adds Marinelli. “We provide a seasoned Executive Producer with Wendy, who is also an Editor herself, so she really understands what the needs of an Editor are on any given project. We also have all the staff-support needed for a flawless experience. Wendy actively represents Editors in the collective, assessing upcoming jobs in the marketplace and determining a complimentary Editor for a particular project or client.
“Envision a new working model and a company, a collective, that is flexible, nimble and ready to meet the challenges of today’s advertising, production and post-production market,” explains Marinelli. “To borrow a Marshall McLuhan analogy, we’re no longer looking into the rearview mirror of the industry, but focusing our attention on the road ahead.”
As founding partners in TwoPoint0, for Rosen & Marinelli, their goal and mission is to create more opportunities for freelance Editors while offering greater flexibility to clients by customizing each project to their needs, from conception to completion, with an eye towards comfort and convenience in the process. Ready to meet the challenges of a constantly evolving industry, putting the work first, providing all the technical expertise, creativity and passion every project demands.
