Beast Editorial, a Deluxe Creative Services Company, is proud to announce the addition of editorial talents, Erich Wiemer and Charlie Lee to Detroit’s Beast offices. Lee and Wiemer will be joining forces at Beast with Adam Pillion and Chris Chynoweth as well as sister companies, Method Studios and Company 3, in their newly renovated space.
For Wiemer, a Detroit native, 2014 is marking the year for his next career phase, having already secured more than 10 years of cutting experience in various editing houses. With several awards under his belt, including the 2012 AICE Best of Detroit, he rapidly gained a wide client base and a myriad of accolades. Clients he has collaborated with include Autoweek, Bosch, Carhartt, Consumers Energy, DIRECTV, Toyota, Harley Davidson, Lincoln, Navy, USAA, as well as multiple artists’ music videos, to say the least. This year, he is embarking on his first two full feature documentaries. “I'm beyond excited to join the prestigious Beast roster,” states Wiemer. “I very much look forward to exploring the broader scope of opportunities that come with a company like Beast.”
Lee started with the Los Angeles team in 2008 and has since worked with a large assortment of clients including the likes of Chrysler, Cleveland Clinic, Gap, Dodge, Harley-Davidson, Jeep, Mitsubishi, Nike, Nissan, Strayer University, Toyota and more. An award-winning editor as well, he most recently made it onto the 2013 D Show shortlist and feels his migration to the Motor City is a natural one. “From my first visit, the city and our Beast office have been very welcoming and supportive. My clients here have become close friends and the work I’ve done has been well received, so the transition feels seamless," shares Lee. "I'm excited to be a part of such a resilient and hardworking culture.”
Laura Hochthanner, Managing Director for Beast, Method and Company 3 in Detroit is delighted to expand Beast's existing lineup. “It is exciting starting off the New Year welcoming both Erich and Charlie to the team,” expresses Hochthanner. “They are both extremely talented and are going to be great additions to our already strong roster.”
