NEW YORK — Andrew Doga has been promoted to staff editor at the bicoastal Union. He’s been with the company since 2009, and recently cut Hello From Home Mallory, one of three short documentary pieces for Hershey’s via Arnold Worldwide. Union partner/editor Marco Perez cut the other two.
Mallory is a moving two-minute piece that tells the story of a Team USA Paralympian, who receives a Hershey’s care package containing a note from a hometown supporter.
Doga also edited a pair of documentary projects: Diandra’s Story for Burt’s Bees and Leland for Avis. In addition, he served as co-editor, along with Union’s Eric Argiro, on an episode of the popular Web series
:DRYVRS. The “Bob’s Way Home” episode stars Rosanna Arquette and Tom Petty, and premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival.
Before joining Union, Doga was a freelance assistant. He’s also held the position as staff assistant editor at Version2, where he worked with Vito DeSario and with Sloane Klevin, who is now a partner/editor at Union.
“The first time Andrew co-edited a project with me (a Kodak spot directed by Tony Kaye), I knew he had a filmmaker's sensibility,” says Klevin. “He is a wonderful visual storyteller, but also has incredible instincts for how to structure and tease out performance and story in surprising ways that only someone who truly understands filmmaking can devise. I'm excited that Andrew has made the transition to full-fledged editor here, and I can't wait for more people to experience his talent and intelligence firsthand.”
