NEW YORK CITY — Chimney (www.chimneygroup.com) has added editor Glenn Conte to its creative team. The appointment follows the launch of a 6,500-square-foot facility last year in New York. Chimney offers production, editorial, CG, VFX, color grading, animation, motion graphics and finishing/delivery services to clients in the commercial, branded content and feature film space. The company has an office in Los Angeles, as well as numerous international locations, including those in Stockholm, Singapore, Berlin, Sydney and Copenhagen.
Conte brings a wealth of experience in editorial. Prior to joining Chimney, he spent nine years at editorial and finishing boutique, Northern Lights. Prior to that, he was at post production company Red Car. Some of his longer form narrative credits include editing three seasons of the Web series Cop Show with Colin Quinn. He’s also cut commercials, broadcast promos and podcasts.
In conjunction with SundanceTV and Amanda Knox, he co-produced and edited Season 2 of the true crime podcast series, The Truth About True Crime with Amanda Knox, which is set to launch February 27th on SundanceTV.
“Everywhere I look, companies are diversifying and transitioning to a multipurpose approach to stay ahead of the game,” says Conte. “Traditional advertising is increasingly trying to create content that connects with viewers in a more emotive and meaningful way. As well as the opportunity to connect with a broader client base, Chimney’s forward-thinking attitude really appealed to me. As a global company with a vast network of 50-plus directors worldwide, Chimney is invested in different streams of content creation and is serious about adapting to the future. Adding my expertise is part of the bigger picture of what Chimney wants to achieve and I’m looking forward to helping the company grow.”
