Edit house Final Cut has brought sr. editor Miky Wolf on board and promoted Betty Jo Moore from assistant to editor and producer Penny Ensley to head of production.
Wolf joins from Big Sky Editorial where he has spent much of his formative editing career, cutting a wide range of projects from commercials and music videos to shorts and feature films. A Cleveland native by way of Washington Heights, Wolf made his way to New York originally to direct and produce theater. It’s no surprise then that his ties to the stage remain strong, as he was the editor of hit HBO feature documentary Six By Sondheim, which began an ongoing and fruitful collaboration with renowned director, playwright, and librettist, James Lapine.
Wolf’s notable recent work includes an ongoing campaign for Prada with Anonymous Content director and longtime collaborator Autumn de Wilde starring Elijah Woods. Other credits includes campaigns for American Express, Google, Lexus, and Verizon as well as collaborations with agencies Barton F. Graf, Droga5, Joan, and Ogilvy.
“I’m excited to be a part of Final Cut, and I’m so impressed by the scope of work they’re involved in. Not just in the editorial, which is the heart of the company, of course, but in all the creative services they offer, with visual effects, sound and production through Significant Others and Machine Sound. Coming from a directing background, my hope was always to be able to bring together my experience as both an editor and director to step behind the camera,” Wolf said of what attracted him to Final Cut. “It’s amazing that Final Cut has positioned itself with the ability to offer those services to its staff as well as to its clients.”
Stephanie Apt, president of Final Cut, said of Wolf, “The passion he has for film, theater and the arts is infectious, and his spirit of collaboration with producers, directors and creatives is inspiring.”
Final Cut has also promoted longtime assistant editor Moore to rostered Editor. “Betty Jo has been an incredible assistant over the last six years, and has made herself an invaluable member of both the New York and LA teams. She is a generous mentor and leader to the other assistants, and has helped us put our best foot forward on many an occasion,” said Apt of the decision.
Seasoned producer Ensley has also been promoted to head of production for Final Cut’s New York Office, where she will complement and work closely alongside executive producer Sarah Roebuck.
