(New York, New York--May 13, 2011) ShootersNYC, the new satellite of ShootersINC, the Philadelphia-based multi-dimensional post house, led by Managing Director/Executive Producer Jeff Beckerman has added creative cutter Anthony Marinelli to its talent roster.
Although Marinelli Is based in New York at ShootersNYC, he is also available for projects at the company’s headquarters in Philadelphia. Conversely, the Philly-based ShootersINC editors -- Matthew Burres, Rob Graham, Mark Hutchinson, Chris Magliozzo,and Steve Wheelock -- are available for projects out of the New York studio.
''We’re proud to bring an editor as creative and well respected as Anthony to ShootersNYC,'' Beckerman says. ''He’s a great addition to our roster of talent. With our advertising, television, feature film and visual effects experience now available to the New York market via ShootersNYC and our affiliated companies, Anthony’s impressive reel, coupled with his theater and film directing background, adds a another creative layer to our company.''
Marinelli began his editing career 17 years ago as an in-house editor at agency DDB Needham. From there he worked at Steel Rose Editorial, Crew Cuts and Cut + Run, before joining Red Car in 2008. His work over the years includes the 2005 Super Bowl spot for Visa ''Superheroes,'' as well as standout spots for Aleve, NY Lottery, Bayer, Scotts/Miracle-Gro, Atlantis Resorts, Parker Brothers, CIGNA, Wendy’s, United Healthcare, Johnson & Johnson and the US Tennis Open. In 2002 he was nominated for an AICE award for his work on the NY Department of Tourism's ''New Day'' campaign, an effort to revitalize the city tourism industry following the September 11th terrorist attacks.
His work outside of advertising is equally impressive, including his 2008 documentary feature with Alicia Keys called "Alicia in Africa," for her Keep a Child Alive charitable organization. Additionally, he’s directed several short films and theater projects. His latest short, ''Subway'' (2010), was an Official Selection at the New York Filmmakers series and was recently screened at the Los Angeles New Filmmakers series. On the theater side, he is currently directing a staged reading of the classic play ''Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf'' at the Center Playhouse in Freehold, New Jersey this spring.
''I love what Shooters is creating, and developing a New York City studio is a very smart move,'' Marinelli adds. ''Today, the trend is all about integration and making the process more convenient and efficient for clients, and the boutique approach of ShootersNYC coupled with the extensive talent, technology and back end resources of ShootersINC and its other companies, is the perfect scenario for the new ad agency model and I’m proud to be a part of it.''
