Work Editorial has announced the addition of editor Nick Rondeau to the roster. Based in the Los Angeles office working alongside partners Stewart Reeves and Neil Smith, Nick will be represented globally.
Nick honed his craft during ten successful years at Arcade Edit, working across the board on high profile brands Apple, Nike, Beats, Adidas, Chipotle and Porsche with agencies such as Goodby Silverstein & Partners, BBH New York and David & Goliath.
Inevitably as a child of the nineties growing up in Palms Springs, a diet of skateboarding videos and endless MTV cultivated an indelible love for music videos. Nick is also widely noted for his work with prominent artists, The Weeknd, Vince Staples, Jay-Z, Rae Sremmurd, Skrillex, Meek Mills, Kanye West and James Vincent McMorrow. His work on 'Starboy' for The Weeknd Ft. Daft Punk and directed by frequent collaborator Grant Singer of Anonymous Content, won Best Video at 2016 MTV Europe Music Awards and has garnered over 1.5 billion views. Working on Jay-Z's 'Picasso Baby: A Performance Art Film' with Mark Romanek also received a nomination for Best Music Video at 56th Grammy Awards. His passion also extends itself to composing ambitious live visuals for numerous artists on tour.
Marlo Baird, EP at Work Editorial, Los Angeles says: "Nick wears his commitment to the craft and his work ethic on his sleeve and it shows. Bold, rhythmic and confident, the way he embraces sound is singular, it almost feels like jazz. Putting the director's vision first whilst completely supporting the agency - all these qualities make Nick a perfect fit on our roster. We anticipate some standout opportunities for the future and couldn't be more thrilled."
Nick reflects on the path that led him to this point as a fresh intern compiling reels for broadcast producers at Goodby Silverstein & Partners. It was a fast track education into the most clever campaigns of the day and most prolific directors. "A boutique, London based company named Work Editorial continuously cropped up. I honestly fell in love with Bill Smedley, Neil Smith and Rich Orrick back then, stacking reels in that basement. It's so crazy to me that I am working with them now."
