While he has edited longform projects, Hellman’s real passion is spot work. In addition to editing, he can also provide motion graphic design.Hellman is excited about joining Cut + Run (www.cutandrun.tv) and working for co-founder/editor Chuck Willis, who he has known for over 10 years. He will also be working with editors Mike Douglas, Jon Grover, Anthony Marinelli and Adam Jenkins.

"Chuck has assembled a high-end group of people who have fun and yet always operate on an exceedingly professional level," says Hellman. "It is a great environment and we share a similar philosophy about work and creative collaboration. I always knew we would be reconnected and am excited to have that come to fruition at Cut + Run."

"He is a longtime friend and someone who's abilities I admire greatly," notes Willis. "Chris is the kind of editor who does cuts that I look at and say, 'I don't think I could have done that.' He is also one of the rare ones that does visual and comedy equally well. He's a super talent, a grown up, and a great source of positive energy to have around the office. We are very lucky to have him with us."

Hellman’s work includes projects for Miller, BK, Nike, Coke, Volvo, Jaguar and Compaq, to name a few, for agencies J. Walter Thompson, The Martin Agency, BBDO, Young & Rubicam, Ogilvy & Mather, Chiat|Day, Lowe and Saatchi & Saatchi.
