(November 17, 2015) Whitehouse Post
continues their tradition of growing the best editorial talent in the industry with the promotion of Chicago-based Dan Zabinski
to Editor. Born and raised in Chicago, Dan’s interest in storytelling started early when he began experimenting with stop motion films as a child. He continued his education at Columbia College in Chicago majoring in film with a concentration in editing. In 2008, Zabinski got his start in the industry as an intern at Whitehouse Post, and has been there ever since.
Known for his comedic editing style and after effects prowess, Zabinski has built a diverse reel that includes major brands such as Allstate (Leo Burnett), Miller (Leo Burnett), Kleenex (VSA), Meijer (Distillery Project) and the Chicago Bulls. He’s also worked with esteemed directors Phil Morrison, Joaquin Baca-Asay, Guy Shelmerdine, and Mark Romanek.
“Dan has worked so hard and is the embodiment of the Whitehouse ideal of growing our talent from within,” says Whitehouse Partner/Editor Matthew Wood. “He’s a very talented editor with a great understanding of visual effects, and a great sense of humor.”
