McCullough has spend more than a decade growing as a film editor. Her work includes the short film You Can’t Stop Us for Nike, which won Outstanding Commercial at the 73rd Annual Emmys and the Film Grand Prix 2021 at Cannes. Her short film Call it COVID received a Silver Lion at the 2021 Cannes Lions Awards and a Gold Pencil from One Club. Additional brand credits include work for P&G, Coke, Verizon and Google.
Moesch is a Brazilian film editor who’s brought his vivid, intimate editing to a wide range of content mediums. A project he edited for São Paulo artist Nego Bala, titled Sonho (Dream), represents his editorial vision, blending the music video format with short film gravitas. The film went on to win awards at Cannes, Ciclope Latino and the Clio Awards. His short documentary edit on Malko was a Young Directors Award finalist and shortlisted for the Ciclope Festival. Moesch’s venture into commercial editorial has seen him collaborate with global brands such as Facebook and Budweiser. He moves into an editor position after honing his craft as assistant editor in Final Cut’s New York City office.
“Lucas and Jasmine are immensely talented editors who are not only highly skilled and forward-thinking, but who also each have a distinct and exciting point of view,” says Final Cut US director of global business, Justin Brukman. “They have both made strong impacts already in their careers. We are so happy to watch them continue to grow their talent while on the FC roster.”
