Leading production and post house Optimus today announced the promotion of Katie Zaumseil to editor. Working out of Optimus Santa Monica, Zaumseil’s bookings have multiplied rapidly as more and more clients asked to work with the editor, who has a talent for translating raw emotions into visual pieces.

“Katie is extraordinarily talented and has earned her way to the chair as clients consistently request her to edit their projects,” said Optimus Santa Monica Executive Producer/Managing Director Therese Hunsberger. “Her body of work is so impressive. She also brings a natural warmth and confidence to client meetings, all while creatively articulating her vision.”

Zaumseil has been with Optimus for almost six years. Most recently a senior assistant editor, she began her career as an assistant, working her way up from there. Zaumseil has cut with clients including Mattel, Disney, Men's Wearhouse, Taco Bell, P&G, PETA, Allstate and La Perla, among others.

“I’ve been so fortunate to grow with Optimus and all the creative talent here,” said Zaumseil. “This place is like a family to me, and I’ve been able to hone my passion for telling a good story and developing what’s important about it. I believe editing should be inspired by my own experiences and bringing them to life for viewers to see.”
