(NEW York, New York--September 3, 2014) Cutting Room, NY has added red-hot editor Vic Carreno to their roster. Coming to Cutting Room after serving as in-house editor at Red Tettemer O’Connell & Partners, Carreno has cut campaigns for the likes of Under Armour, Planet Fitness, Dial For Men and Right Guard, as well as two Super Bowl spots for Century 21. He also joins Cutting Room after cutting part of the buzzed-about Dockers “Dad Pants” campaign, which was featured everywhere from “Good Morning America” to FTW. Carreno’s reel spans from comedy dialogue and dramatic visual to pulse-quickening athletics spots.
Says Cutting Room
Managing Partner Susan Willis, “We rarely bring editors from the outside as we like all of our cutters to be Cutting Room home grown and trained. After many, many meetings with Vic we knew we should make an exception for him. He has jumped right in and it is so great to have him here with us.”
Adds Carreno, “I’ve been a fan of Cutting Room’s work for years and I’m honored to now be a part of the team. The culture there is incredibly supportive and collaborative, and they work with some of the most exciting content creators in the business.”
His nearly 9 years cutting in-house at Red Tettemer O’Connell & Partners gave him a unique perspective on an agency’s creative process. Continues Carreno, “I have a deep appreciation for how much an idea evolves from concept through post to delivery. Because of this, I aim to be true to the core of what the creative team has generated with every cut.”
New Jersey-native Carreno first cut his teeth in the media industry at Banyan Productions, working on various TV series. Following Banyan, he served as an editorial apprentice to Oscar-winning editor Gerald B. Greenberg (The French Connection, Apocalypse Now) on the feature film Invincible, before transitioning to Red Tettemer O’Connell & Partners.
