Issue: Editing - November 2006


LOS ANGELES – Jigsaw Editorial (www.jigsawedit.com) has expanded its talent pool with the addition of editors Stuart Waks and Olivier Gajan.

Waks comes to the studio following a run with his own shop, Stuart Waks and Company. His first project since joining the Jigsaw roster is Rolex’s Water, directed by Michael Mann. The spot was shot on location in Shanghai and Bimini for JWT/Paris.

Gajan, whose varied work includes high-profile spots, features, and music videos, recently returned to LA from France, where he cut L’ennemi Intime (The Intimate Enemy), his third feature with director Florent Siri. He previously edited The Nest and Hostage, starring Bruce Willis.

“Stuart and Olivier add an exciting breadth to our roster,” says Jigsaw executive producer Sybil McCarthy-Hadfield. “Stuart is the consummate action and storytelling editor. His diverse feature and commercial work has earned him recognition as one of the most talented artists out there. Olivier is a gifted cinematic editor who can smoothly integrate visual effects with cars, music, stories, fashion - he’s done it all. We are delighted to have them both with us.”
