Whitehouse Post has promoted James Dierx to editor on its L.A. roster.
Having attended film school at Depaul University in Chicago, Dierx joined Whitehouse Post as an intern in 2007, working his way up to assistant editor. In 2011 he moved to Whitehouse Los Angeles, transplanting from Chicago where he had just directed and edited his Cats in Tanks, which was featured at the Gold Coast Film Festival and became a viral success with over one million YouTube views.
Dierx has since gone on to work with directors like Smuggler’s Henry-Alex Rubin, documentarian Rory Kennedy, music video director Hiro Murai, and MJZ’s Dante Ariola. Dierx’s reel ranges from Allstate to Toyota, GE to Barbie and Google, and agency relationships include BBDO, Saatchi and Saatchi, 72andSunny, David & Goliath, CP+B, Leo Burnett, and TBWA\Chiat\Day. In addition to his awards for Cats in Tanks, Dierx also received AICE Trailer Park Gold in 2009, and a Silver Plaque at the Chicago International Film Festival TV Awards in 2015.
