Suzie Moore has been promoted to Editor! Moore joined the company as Senior Assistant Editor two years ago after getting her start at Avenue Edit. In her role as Senior Assistant, Moore quickly gained the attention of clients who began asking for her unique editorial vision on their projects. Suzie has boundless creative energy and a sharp eye, which she has demonstrated on recent projects for clients as varied as Sharpie, Depaul University, Mitsubishi, Unilever, Courvoisier, the Chicago Wolves, Harper’s Bazaar, TransUnion, and CROCs.
Drew Hall moves up from Assistant Editor to Editor. Born in England, Drew relocated from California to Chicago where he considered a climb on the corporate ladder before realizing his passion lay in film. A self-taught filmmaker, he was writing, directing and editing his own projects before joining Foundation as an assistant editor to owner James Lipetzky, who was impressed with both his work and his work ethic.
“We believe that Foundation’s success is all about finding and growing talent,” says Lipetzky. “We pride ourselves on creating an environment that promotes creative drive and excellence, allowing people to step up and maximize their capabilities.” Here, here!

As most of you know, we opened an L.A. office last year in Santa Monica. Well, we officially signed the lease for our brand new space just this week!!
Our new address?
3583 HAYDEN AVE on the Hayden Tract in Culver City!
Just over 6,000 square feet, the space will have a 30ft x 30ft shooting stage as well as editorial bays and production areas including a mezzanine floor.
In true California style, the space makes use of three garage door roll-ups that spill out onto the expansive patio adorned by an architectural cactus garden suspended above.
Our L.A. studio currently houses award winning editor Jonathan Del Gatto, partner/co-founder James Lipetzky and up and comer Anna Patel. In addition, music video lensers Focus Creeps, will also be on the roster in Los Angeles. Stacy Paris produces.
While Foundation’s Los Angeles office is currently housed in Santa Monica digs, the new space should be ready by early December.

Our short in support of same sex marriage, “Marriage Equality” was selected out of 235 entries from all across the world to show in the 2010 Lights, Camera, Help Film Festival in Austin, Texas!! Tom Pastorelle edited this piece and it was shot by Ben Chappell. But virtually everyone at Foundation touched this film in some way and we’re all very proud to see it accepted to this festival! The piece was originally created for F.A.I.R. in support of abolishing Prop 8.
Early this year it was selected as one of three finalists by the E-Hero Awards selection committee for the 2010 Human Rights Campaign Gala in Los Angeles. The Gala featured U.S. Senator Barbara Boxer, as well as actresses Portia DeRossi and Kathy Griffin, who received the Ally for Equality Award.
We are proud to have been given the opportunity to contribute to the cause and thrilled that our piece has been selected for this prestigious event!
