Editor Brian Sanford joins Kyle Edit just as it moves to a new location in New York’s Flatiron District. This experienced cutter has worked with agencies such as BBDO, DDB, Grey, Digitas, RGA, M&C Saatchi, McCann and Taxi on campaigns for Lowe’s, Time Warner, E-trade, Mucinex, Guinness and Miller Light.
Most recently, Sanford’s work can be seen in Jeep’s Super Bowl 50 spot, which ranked number one in Adweek’s roundup of “The 5 Best Ads of Super Bowl 50” and won first place in the 2016 Clio Creative Bowl.
Sanford, who cuts on both Avid Media Composer and Adobe Premiere, joins Kyle Edit owner/editor Tina Mintus (who cuts on Avid), executive producer Eytan Gutman, editor Nate Taylor (who uses Premiere) and creative director/visual effects artist Mike McKenna.
“I have always wanted Kyle to grow, but just enough so that we can maintain our unique and specialized personality,” says Sanford. “Our move into a larger space in a prime location marks the perfect time to welcome Brian onboard, but walking through our doors still feels like walking into someone’s home.”
With the move, Kyle also expands its visual effects department to include color correction under the creative direction of McKenna, who began his career in 1996 at Manhattan Transfer, which later became Riot Manhattan.
