London-based commercials editing house The Quarry has teamed with New York and Boston-based post house WAX to bring The Quarry’s editors to the US market.
The new, full-service WAX/The Quarry collaboration, which will be referred to as WAX in the US, will be led by Managing Partner Toni Lipari and Editor/ Partners Paul Watts, Stephen Jess and Bruce Townend.
Lipari said: “We were looking for a strong partner overseas with a similar culture and level of talent who shared our creative sensibilities. We considered ourselves lucky to hook up with The Quarry. Almost immediately, it was obvious we could create outstanding work together without sacrificing what makes each company unique.”
The Quarry Partner Paul Watts, said: “The Quarry has been looking for a new way to bring their editorial talent to the attention of clients in the states. While I have been active in the US over recent years, I’ve been convinced that more of my guys could make a splash here. When we met Toni and Steve at the end of last year, we saw a young hungry company making great strides, and it felt like a natural fit to join them in their adventure.”
The US-based WAX operation offers live-action production, editorial, telecine, VFX design and finishing. Alongside partners Stephen Jess, Paul Watts and Bruce Townend, the collaboration will feature a stable of well-known artists/editors including Eddie Ringer, Jonnie Scarlett, Scot Crane, Jason Sager, Georgia Dodson, Adam Biskupski, Flaura Atkinson, Sylvie Landra, Owen Oppenheimer, and Mark Whelan.
