Editor Brian Sanford has come aboard KYLE edit, joining a talent roster that includes owner/editor Tina Mintus, editor Nate Taylor, and creative director/VFX artist Mike McKenna. Company executive producer is Eytan Gutman.

Sanford has worked with agencies such as BBDO, DDB, Grey, Digitas, R/GA, Saatchi, McCann and Taxi to create work for brands like Lowe’s, Time Warner, Etrade, Mucinex, Guinness and Miller Light. Most recently, Sanford’s work can be seen in Jeep’s Super Bowl 50 spot, which won first place in the 2016 Clio Creative Bowl. Prior to joining KYLE, Sanford was an editor at Cutting Room.

The addition of Sanford comes as KYLE relocates into new larger digs in the Flatiron District. With the move, KYLE also expands its visual effects department to include color correction under the creative direction of McKenna whose career began in 1996 at Manhattan Transfer, which later became RIOT Manhattan. Since joining KYLE, McKenna has worked on spots for such brands as Gillette, Bulgari, L’Oreal, Progresso, Cheerios, Target and Walmart.

KYLE was founded by Mintus following her successful stretch at Version2 where she worked extensively on campaigns for Garnier, L’Oreal, Revlon, Target, Subaru, American Express, JCPenney and Olay, among others. Under Mintus’ leadership, KYLE continues its work with the Garnier brand, along with Hershey’s, Head & Shoulders, Walmart, Pampers and Cheerios, furthering strong relationships with Publicis, Arnold and Saatchi.

EP Gutman came to KYLE after freelancing for shops such as Rock Paper Scissors, Cutting Room and Arcade Edit. Earlier he was a producer at Crew Cuts. His industry roots are as an agency producer at Ogilvy and DDB until landing at BBDO where he led national spots and Super Bowl ads for Pizza Hut as broadcast producer.
