Tom Pastorelle has joined Chicago-based cross-media production company Sarofsky as senior editor, said Erin Sarofsky, principal and executive creative director, and executive producer Steven Anderson on Tuesday.
“We are so thrilled to be adding Tom to our team,” Sarofsky said in a statement. “He has edited a lot of amazing projects over the years. With the influx of work, and the pivot to one-stop shopping, we felt like the timing was right to add an already trusted talent to the group. We now can look forward to daily interactions filled with his amazing laugh and can-do attitude.”
Most recently, Pastorelle was an editor at The Colonie, which he joined in 2011 from Foundation Content. Over the course of his career, Pastorelle has done creative editorial work for such brands as Jeep, McDonald’s, Michelob Ultra, Nike, Wolverine Boots and Wrangler, and for entertainment giants such as Disney and Netflix, among many others. He co-produced feature documentary Amerikan Passport and has edited narrative and documentary features, shorts and music videos.
“In our desire to provide excellent services for our clients, adding Tom to our talent pool makes perfect sense,” Anderson said, also in a statement. “He is a creative and collaborative editor with deep connections throughout the industry, and having him join our expanding team is a major cause for celebration.”
“From blockbuster movie titles to show opens and brand work, I’ve always loved, admired, and respected the magic Sarofsky creates,” Pastorelle said. “Over the course of my career, some of my best work has involved Steven Anderson; I’ve done several projects with Sarofsky in the past five years, so I understand the workflow and the inner workings well. I think we make a great team, and I love that I now get to work with them every day.”
