Nomad Editing Company’s NY office continues to expand its roster with the addition of editors/partners Jim Ulbrich and Adam Schwartz. They follow EP/partner Jennifer Lederman and editor/partner Jai Shukla who joined the company earlier this year.

Since joining Nomad, Ulbrich has worked on projects for Saatchi/NY and Toyota with Droga5. He is now finishing a campaign with Grey. Ulbrich collaborates on many projects with director Matt Smukler from Community Films. 

Ulbrich began his career at Berlin Cameron and then moved to 89 Edit. He shifted over to Mad River and then Beast where he became a partner in the company. Ulbrich has won multiple awards including Cannes Lions and Clios. He has edited much-lauded campaigns for AT&T, Cheerios, Hanes, and Coke.

Editor Schwartz has followed a similar career trajectory as Ulbrich. His client list includes blue chip brands such as Google, HP, Verizon, Reebok, and Nike. Schwartz has collaborated with notable directors including Janusz Kaminski, Errol Morris, Jared Hess, and Wes Anderson. He’s worked on several projects since joining Nomad, and is now editing with BBDO/NY. Schwartz began editing at Lost Planet before he became a founding partner at Beast. 

Lederman described Ulbrich as an editor “who can seamlessly switch skill sets from editing emotional storytelling to cutting some of the best comedy spots out there.”

Of Schwartz, Lederman said, “I had the hardest time choosing spots for his reel because one edit is more interesting than the next. Every spot he cuts shows his contribution as the editor. He has this innate ability to find that extra shot that just unexpectedly brings a cut alive.”
