“You need someone who can approach an edit with a fine balance of feeling, forensics and fortitude,” says Creative Director Shiloh Gray of VML. “Mad scientist meets poet. Someone to define the undefinable for the uninitiated and make a moment feel permanent. Keith is that someone.”
According to Olwell, he considers himself lucky to have a lot of long-term relationships with creatives, including Producer friend Keith Dezen, who brought him the Chevron Delo project. “I guess, this worked out as we’re wrapping our third round of these fun projects,” jokes the Editor. “The Delo work is all about the characters from reality shows: miners, farmers, fishermen, ice road truckers and the like are characters. Keeping those people in their right, rugged space was enjoyable. Honestly, they’re all fun to listen to. I’m just lucky that they were all good natural storytellers. Plus it’s fun to edit stuff with trucks and bulldozers and boats!
“The team at VML are extremely collaborative,” continues Olwell. “They let me hit them with approaches they might not have planned on and they hit me with ideas I didn’t have. They’re a great team creatively that way. Makes my work always interesting.”
Olwell signed with TwoPoint0 when the company launched in Fall 2015. “The good thing about TwoPoint0 is all the relationships they have with studios around town,” concludes the Editor. “We can cut anywhere and finish anywhere. This has let me be close to clients and keep them well taken care of.”
Olwell is currently editing a campaign for Iowa Children’s Hospital, which is airing soon.
