NEW YORK CITY — Nomad Editing Company (www.nomadedit.com) has strengthened its roster with the addition of multifaceted editor Dan Maloney. Best known for his work cutting wry, eclectic comedy spots, Maloney has also edited content that holds an emotional component.
“I love that I get to work in so many different styles and genres,” he says. “It keeps it all interesting.”
Prior to joining Nomad, Maloney cut at studios that included Whitehouse Post, Cut+Run, Spot Welders and Deluxe’s Beast. Throughout his career, he has implemented his eye for composition to a wide range of films, documentaries, branded content and commercials, including Tide’s Interview spot, which debuted during Super Bowl XLII.
“My editing style revolves mostly around performance and capturing that key moment,” he notes. “Whether I’m doing a comedic or dramatic piece, I try to find that instance where an actor feels ‘locked in’ and expand the narrative out from there.”
“Editing is all about timing and pace,” adds Nomad editor and partner Jim Ulbrich. “It’s a craft and you can see Dan’s craftsmanship in every frame of his work. Each beat is carefully constructed to perfection across multiple mediums and genres. He’s not simply a comedy editor, visual storyteller, or doc specialist. He’s a skilled craftsman.”
Nomad editor and partner Jai Shukla agrees. “I’ve followed Dan’s work for a while now and he fits perfectly with the rest of the Nomad team. His comedy background bolsters our already talented roster while still being diverse in other genres. We’re thrilled to welcome him.”
