Cut+Run announced today that Jared Thomas has joined the company as senior producer of the Los Angeles office. Prior to becoming part of the Cut+Run family, Jared was a freelance producer managing and executing projects for both production and postproduction companies in LA and San Francisco.
According to EP Amburr Farls, Jared is an “outstanding producer; he’s 1000 percent dedicated to each collaboration, and understands the scope, scale and detail of every project. This level of care and experience is felt and appreciated by both clients and our editors. We are lucky to have him as part of the Cut+Run family.”
Jared’s love of media started as a member of his middle school A/V club where he was one of a small crew in charge of daily announcements. Sometime around high school, Jared realized that his talent was in producing even if he didn’t know the name for his calling.
“I’ve always been the kind of person to think three steps ahead, even well before I was in the industry. I love the way producing allows you to see the bigger picture as details unfold,” he explained.
He got his industry start as a producer at Beast in San Francisco where he worked for three years, simultaneously founding Gunpowder Collective with creative friends who wanted to make films in their spare time. One of the projects, for Revielle Brothers, reflects Jared’s brand film savvy and his obsession with quality coffee. As a producer he has contributed to projects for such brands as Nike, Geico, Adidas, Coors Light, Mercedes, Microsoft, and Starbucks for agencies 72andSunny, 180, BBDO, Venables Bell & Partners, among others.
“Cut+Run is a wide-reaching company that cultivates a strong sense of community,” Jared commented. “Everyone was incredibly welcoming from my first day, and I am excited about deepening my role here.”
