Boutique post production company WAX has expanded its roster with the addition of two new editors - Cass Vanini and Jeremy Huff.
With over two decades of editing experience, Cass has had the opportunity to learn from such talents as Larry Bridges, Andre Betz, Adam Schwartz and Hank Corwin, who helped him discover the power and grace of editing. During his time at Psyop, Cass worked on a variety of projects including Coca Cola’s Happiness Factory and Converse’s ‘My Drive Thru’, as well as gaining experience in the world of VFX.
Following his time at Psyop, Cass joined Work Editorial, where he was guided by the inspiring work of talents such as Rick Orrick, Neil Smith and Stewart Reeves, further expanding his editing skills from live action VR horror film to comedy.
To date, Cass’ commercial work includes editing for brands including Samsung, Underarmour, UNIQLO, FedEx, JBL, Coca Cola and Huggies, amongst others. He has edited music videos for Pharrell Williams, Kid Cudi, Smirnoff Sound Collective and Sweethead to name a few.
Jeremy’s career began in San Francisco in the mid 2000s where he started as an assistant editor at the commercial post house Teak. There, for the next four years, he continued to hone his skills, working on a range of brands including Jansport, EA Sports, Comcast, Google and H&M. In 2011 he relocated to NYC where he worked for companies Superfad, Lost Planet & Consulate before arriving at WAX as a roster editor in 2021.
Over the years Jeremy has collaborated with a range of agencies and brands including Verizon, NFL, Spotify, Planned Parenthood, American Express, Chanel, Wells Fargo, Nissan, Royal Caribbean and agencies Mother, Mullen Lowe, Townhouse, Ogilvy & SS+K to name a few.
Some of his most recent projects include music videos BAS + J Cole “The Jackie,” and another for songwriting legend Diane Warren ft. Rita Ora’s “Seaside.”
