something special going on at Republic right now,” he explains. “The closing of
Fast Cuts gave me the opportunity to explore many shops around town, and I
sensed an energy and commitment to growth at Republic that’s really hard to
duplicate. They’ve got all the right
people in place, backed by a strong ownership team. I’m really glad to be part of it.”
journey to Republic Editorial brings him somewhat full circle. Fifteen years ago he started as an Assistant Editor
at Red Car Dallas, the shop that became Republic Editorial in 2013, following a change in ownership.
After leaving Red Car Dallas in 1999, Mueth joined Video Post &
Transfer, where in a few short years he became an accomplished Flame Artist. He joined Fast Cuts in 2004, where he
expanded his skill-set further to include color grading as well as 3D.
“To have a
Flame Artist who’s well-versed in 3D and color in addition to advanced
compositing techniques is very rare,” says Republic Editor and Partner Chris
Gipson. “Nick’s ability to color makes
him a complete package. With our partnership
with Nice Shoes in New York and our access to their colorists, this gives
Republic a comprehensive coloring arsenal.”
Flame Artists Mueth, Luna and Beninger, in addition to Republic’s sound engineers and motion graphics team, complement the company’s roster of five creative offline editors.view more - Hires, Wins & Businessavagnoni communications, Fri, 16 Jan 2015 16:04:54 GMT
