Acito started his career as a musician in Los Angeles after
graduating from the University of Miami with a major in Film and Music. His
exposure and unusual approach to editing - developed during his film school
days - led to an editor position at Filmcore Editorial, where he worked on
projects for Apple, Nike, Pizza Hut, Porsche, and Nissan.
After a turn with Encore, Acito went freelance and
contributed his talent to music videos for a variety of artists, including
Blues Traveler, Sisqo, House of Pain, Brooks and Dunn, and The Rembrandts.
Other projects included the Clio Award-winning opening credits for E.R. via Pittard-Sullivan, the short film Through
Riley's Eyes and the documentary A
Voice from Heaven.
In 2001, Acito moved to Austin, TX, where, at Match Frame,
he cut the PSA I'm An American, which
aired shortly after the 9/11 attacks.
