The LA-based editorial and post-production house adds commercial, documentary and VR firepower
LA Editorial and post-production house Cartel – known for its commercial and content work with brands like, Under Armour, Google, Playstation, Levis, and Apple, as well as film work like the recently BAFTA-nominated short ‘Wale’ — has brought on Adam Robinson as Partner / Editor, and Ting Poo, as Editor.
Adam Robinson joins founders Andy McGraw, Leo Scott and Lauren Bleiweiss as partner.
Adam arrives from Work Editorial which he joined in 2015. Prior to that he spent ten years with Whitehouse Post. Adam has developed his craft across varying disciplines of narrative storytelling in both short and long form. His esteemed list of credits includes commercial work for Gatorade, Dick’s Sporting Goods, Liberty Mutual and the YMCA, as well as music videos for Katy Perry, Kanye West and J. Cole. His long form collaborations include work for directors, Harmony Korine (“Spring Breakers”), Peter Berg (“Patriot’s Day”) and Josh Locy (“Hunter Gatherer”).
Ting joins Cartel from Spotwelders. Having successfully nurtured a career across commercials, T.V, VR and documentary, her illustrious and diverse list of credits include Academy Award-winning “Heaven is a Traffic Jam on the 405” and Emmy-nominated “The Displaced.” In 2014, she edited Kathryn Bigelow’s “The Protectors,” a VR film about elephant poaching. Her TV credits include Netflix series, “Chef’s Table” and “7 Days Out.” Notable commercial credits include the Facebook’s “Friends Day” campaign and Super Bowl spots for both Bud Light and NBC Sports.
“Adam and Ting are respected and distinguished editors, as well as being wonderful people. They’re a natural fit for our company,” said founding partner, Andy McGraw. “The timing is perfect as we move to expand Cartel into new territories, solidifying our position as a top-flight editorial shop.”
