Cut+Run New York announced that Stacy Peterson has been promoted to editor and Julia Williams has been promoted to head of production.
Shortly after graduating with a film degree from Northwestern University, Peterson moved to N.Y. in search of an editing career. A chance but fortuitous introduction to Rana Martin and Akiko Iwakawa, then at Final Cut, led to her first assistant position. Peterson moved to Cut+Run with Iwakawa, and has since collaborated with a variety of the company’s editing talent. Peterson has edited projects for Gillette, BMW, Tide, Clorox, Newcastle and Nickelodeon.
“Stacy is a natural born editor and has garnered considerable respect and trust from her fan base,” said Martin, “She puts her heart and soul into her editing and exhibits an unwavering commitment to each project.”
Williams has been a producer with Cut+Run for nearly two years. She began her career at Beast, where she grew into the producer role and helped the New York office launch its finishing department before joining Cut+Run. She has been similarly instrumental in developing the Cut+Run’s finishing services, and will continue to oversee its expansion into design, motion graphics and visual effects. As head of production, Williams will work in tandem with EP Rana Martin, overseeing the producer team and the office’s daily operations, both creative editorial and finish.
“Julia is a sharp producer and an unyielding source of positivity. She has made a significant contribution to growing and integrating our offline and finishing offerings in New York and it shows,” said Martin. “This promotion is a natural next step for Julia and a tremendous asset for Cut+Run.”
