We’re excited to announce the addition of Jasmine ‘Mac’ McCullough as editor at our Los Angeles location, as well as the promotion of Lucas Moesch to editor at the company’s New York office.
With over a decade of cutting her teeth as a film editor, Mac McCullough came into the craft when she realised her passion for storytelling through fragments of footage in college. Drawn to highly collaborative projects that push culture forward, McCullough’s breadth of award-winning work includes the short film ‘You Can’t Stop Us’ for Nike, which won Outstanding Commercial at the 73rd Annual Emmys and the Film Grand Prix 2021 at Cannes. Her short film “Call it Covid” received a Silver Lion at the 2021 Cannes Lions Awards and a Gold Pencil from One Club. Her additional brand work includes P&G, Coke, Verizon, and Google.
“Final Cut is a household name for a reason — the work is top-notch,” says McCullough. “But it’s really all of the people I’ve met who work at Final Cut that really impressed me. There’s a strong sense of community, and that’s what I always look for in a workplace.”
Lucas Moesch is a Brazilian film editor who has brought his vivid, intimate editing to a wide range of content mediums. The project he edited for São Paulo artist Nego Bala, “Sonho (Dream),” represents his editorial vision, blending music video format with short film gravitas. The film went on to win awards at Cannes, Ciclope Latino, and the Clio Awards. His short documentary edit on Malko was a Young Directors Award finalist and shortlisted for the Ciclope Festival. Moesch’s venture into commercial editorial has seen him collaborate with global brands such as Facebook and Budweiser. He becomes Editor after honing his craft as Assistant Editor in Final Cut’s New York City office.
“I learned so much while on Final Cut’s New Blood roster, the mentorship from Final Cut senior editors was key for me to find my voice as an editor,” says Moesch. “I’m ready to take that into this exciting new role and continue growing side by side with some of the most respected editors in the business.”
“Lucas and Jasmine are immensely talented editors who are not only highly skilled and forward-thinking but who also each have a distinct and exciting point of view,” says Final Cut US director of global business Justin Brukman. “They have both made strong impacts already in their careers. We are so happy to watch them continue to grow their talent while on the FC roster.”
