NEW YORK CITY — Creative editorial company, Nomad (www.nomadedit.com), which has offices in Manhattan, Los Angeles and London, has added editor Jojo King to its New York team. With an eye and ear for fashion, beauty and the arts, King has contributed to music videos, such as Janelle Monae’s new single Pynk and Moses Sumney’s
Worth It, as well as to films and commercials for Vogue, Tommy Hilfiger, Adidas Originals, Marc Jacobs and Victoria’s Secret.
“At Nomad, I hope to bring a unique perspective on how to approach each project, translate my skills and background in fashion and music videos to a broader market, and pull from the experience and style of the editors that I truly respect at the company,” says King.
Along with editing a recent music video for indie star Lykke Li, King also just wrapped jobs with Droga5 and Johannes Leonardo.
“Jojo is an amazing addition to our team,” says Nomad New York editor/partner Jim Ulbrich. “Upon watching his reel, it was obvious that he has an instinctual editing skill set that separates him from most editors. His innate storytelling ability supplemented with a great design sense create very interesting and watchable films. I’m just psyched I have a front row seat to see how his career evolves. Sky’s truly the limit for him.”
Nomad EP/partner Jennifer Lederman says King’s arrival will help reinforce the company’s creative emphasis in New York. “Jojo coming on was perfect timing! When we expanded Nomad New York, we were determined to make it a place that focuses on the creativity of our team. We just celebrated our one-year anniversary in our new space, and we’ve grown our VFX and support staff a lot in the past year, so it was the ideal time to add on a new editor. We got so lucky Jojo found us as he brings a new style to our offerings. He combines this intense artistry with the narrative arc, which leads to his cuts being fun and surprising. He brings that artistic sensibility into our office every day, and his reel is something I love to show.”
