NEW YORK - Editorial, visual effects and design company Version2 (www.version2.net) has made editor Tina Mintus a partner. Mintus, who has been with Owner/Editor Vito DeSario for eight years, will head the company with DeSario and be responsible for new recruitment.

Mintus launched her editorial career at the age of 20, when she left Canada for the film scene in New York. She dropped out of her Toronto high school to work as an assistant for director Laurie Lynd on the feature film "House," produced at Toronto's Norman Jewison Film Center. From there, Mintus finished her high school degree and then headed to Paris for a year, where she studied French.

Mintus then became an apprentice at Vito DeSario Editing. She first assisted editor Fred Jordan for several years and then began assisting DeSario in 1998. She was promoted to editor after two years. Mintus has since edited numerous spots for clients such as Samsung, Mercedes, Revlon, Legoland and Reebok, as well as music videos for artists including Ryan Adams, Slim and Jessica Simpson, to name a few.
