    Wild(child)/NY Signs Editor Tom Schachte

    April 20, 2012, 3:38 pm
    Multi Clio Award-Winning Editor Joins Wild(child) - Exits BlueRock/NY After 10-years
    NY: Wild(child) Editorial owner, Yvette Pineyro, has announced the signing of Tom Schachte to her company’s roster of editors.



    Schachte is a multi award-winning editor without boundaries, whose varied body of work includes spots that run the gamut – from dialogue, fast action, big picture, and cars - to visual storytelling and humor. He has worked on national commercials for such brands as AOL, AT&T, Toyota, Royal Caribbean, Hasbro, Verizon, Special Olympics, Moviefone, eBay and UPS.



    A director’s editor known for his collaborative creative partnerships, Schachte’s talents have been called upon by a long roster of industry luminaries, which includes Elma Garcia, Raymond Bark, Scott Duncan, and Marcus Stevens.




    Schachte, who joins Wild(child) Editorial after a ten-year run at BlueRock in New York, says, when it comes to defining his approach to editing, "I work to purge my mind of preconceptions when I start a new job, so I try not to have a set style or approach. With commercials, most of the time I read the script, but I don’t look at the storyboard until I have a cut that I like.”



    "Tom is a phenomenal editor who has built a reputation for bringing a fresh aesthetic and a creative, collaborative approach to crafting spots across an infinite range of genres,” says Pineyro. "His experience cutting not only hundreds of spots, as well as trailers for big-budget feature films and music videos for high-profile artists, brings the invaluable perspective of a filmmaker to his commercial work - and makes him an ideal fit with Wild(child)'s multi-disciplined team of cutters.”



    “The opportunity to work with Yvette and be part of the forward-thinking, global collaborative of talent that she has brought together, is what drew me to Wild(child),” says the multi award-winning editor. “Along with its design division, Resident Creative Studio, Wild(child) provides a meticulous pipeline that takes a spot from concept through completion, and allows editors to follow a single shared creative vision to fruition.”



    “The first time I stepped out of the elevator into Wild(child)’s space I was struck by the clean understated beauty of the working environment. It just looked like the kind of place where creative things happened,” says Schachte, “Over the years I’ve learned to trust my instincts, and as a result the big decisions just sort of make themselves,” he adds. “During my first meeting with Yvette scarcely a word passed about business - it was like meeting a person with a like-minded creative vision, connecting and getting to know one another; We just clicked.”



    In addition to editing commercials, Schachte has cut scores of music videos for super stars such as Donna Summer, Huey Lewis, Glenn Frey, John Mellencamp, and Steve Martin, as well as a host of lesser-known performers.

    He also brings a filmmaker’s eye to the craft of editing spots that draws from his experience editing movie trailers for films such as Dead Men Don’t Wear Plaid with Steve Martin and Carl Reiner, and The Abyss with James Cameron, and the opening title sequence for a David Bowie concert film.



    Early in his career Schachte was hand-picked by the iconic editor Jacques Dury, (AICE Hall of Fame inductee), as his assistant - and promoted to editor nine-month later.



    Dury worked with some of the industry greats, like Joe Pytka (PYTKA/CA) and Leslie Dektor (Dektor Film/CA). However it was Dury’s relationship with Hal Riney (Hal Riney & Partners, San Francisco/ Publicis & Riney) as his personal editor that introduced Tom to the spot arena and presented him with the opportunity to work on a string of high-profile commercials for Henry Weinhard’s Beer, Gallo, Bartles, Jaymes, and most famously, Ronald Reagan’s It’s Morning Again in America campaign.”
