Marinis brings his experience to the Goodpenny edit team, with a reel that includes work for ESPN, Johnnie Walker, Olay, Hershey’s, YouTube, Kenneth Cole, Volkswagen, Tanqueray and Nissan. He has collaborated with a numerous agencies and directors while working at many shops in New York, including Cutting Room, Crew Cuts and Cut+Run.
“Goodpenny just felt like a natural fit,” Marinis said. “It’s a highly creative, open and collaborative environment. I am excited to join the team and grow with the company as well as with my new colleagues.”
Raised in Mexico City, Herrmann is fluent in English, Spanish and German and adept in TV, film, music videos and documentaries. Herrmann’s creative vision is built on expertise in many disciplines. With a natural eye for storytelling and more than 15 years of experience, which includes work in the Latin market, Herrmann has cut for General Motors, Coca Cola, American Express, FedEx, Nissan, McDonald’s, Kraft Foods, Colgate-Palmolive, Pepsi, AT&T, Bacardi, Kellogg’s and Sony Music. Earlier this year, Herrmann won two Gold ADDY awards for a Verizon FiOS spot.
“Both Goodpenny and I have realized we’ve got a match.com connection,” Herrmann said. “I’ve felt like a part of the family since day one – everyone’s so dedicated and happy. It’s good to have a home like this.”
“The Latin market is growing and is an essential facet to any post business now,” explained Goodpenny partner Bruce Ashley. “Having Sven as part of our team is a very exciting prospect for us, as we are able to better serve our clients in this market. Not only is Sven multilingual, he is a super-talented and experienced professional editor with a creative flair that serves him in both the Latin and general markets. We are more than excited to have him as part of our growing team of artists, and now we have a second pilot in the family. With John, given the diversity and caliber of his work, he is clearly an exceptional talent and complements the team with a specialty in comedy and dialogue. He’s one of the most enthusiastic, creative and dedicated editors I have met.”
Goodpenny also announced that, in addition to Bob Jenkis and Sylvette Artinian, it will represent veteran editor Tim Sherry for his editorial projects. Sherry has worked on numerous high profile campaigns, such as Gillette’s “The Best a Man Can Get,” and for top agencies and brands in his career, including Converse, Pepsi and GE Electric. Sherry has a Clio and a Golden Lion to his name, and he has worked with notable directors Joe Pytka, Klaus Obermeyer and Michael Karbelnikoff.
“I am so excited about how Goodpenny is growing,” Goodpenny partner Rasha Clark said. “Besides being a post house that can accommodate all aspects of a project from edit and music to finishing, which allows us to be very competitive, we are that studio of amazing talent and really good people – John and Sven are the perfect addition to this family. They are both great with dialogue and comedy, John loves cutting really visual projects, and Sven edits in three languages. It’s becoming the United Nations over here, which is a reflection of the way that NYC and the world is becoming more of a global community, especially in the advertising market. Talent and clients are realizing what we offer here and that we stand out for all of the right reasons.”
