New York-based creative boutique and post house Goodpenny signs editor Eric Wais. Wais comes to Goodpenny most recently from Bikini Editorial and has worked on campaigns for such top clients as Chase, Sony, Kohl’s and Citi while working alongside award-winning agencies such as mcgarrybown, Saatchi & Saatchi, BBDO and Young & Rubicam. This addition comes on the heels of Goodpenny’s recent expansion to their already robust post-production offerings, becoming one of the first New York edit houses to bring Resolve Color Correct systems in house. Building on their existing state-of-the-art internal workflow, this newest addition compliments their high-level visual effects team and two Flame suites.
Notes Goodpenny Partner Bruce Ashley, “We are very excited to have such an exceptional talent on board at Goodpenny. Eric Wais is a rising star, his dedication to his craft and professionalism speak to his talent and character.” Adds Wais, “I wanted to be very careful about choosing a company to call home. Chemistry and vibe is so important in this business—after talking to Goodpenny, it was a no-brainer. Their enthusiasm for the work they do, finding new types of projects and creative outlets is infectious and that energy goes through the entire staff.”
Following graduation from the University of Cincinnati with a degree in Film and Electronic Media, Wais moved to Brooklyn in 2003 to begin his career in post. After a brief stint in long form television post-production, he shifted into commercials, honing his skills alongside the top editors at top shops including Lost Planet, Spotwelders, Rock Paper Scissors, Version 2, Whitehouse and Nomad. In 2009, he joined Bikini Editorial as a staff editor, cutting national campaigns for top clients including Chase, Sony, Kohl’s, Citi and Comcast.
