The Colonie Continues to Grow, Promotes Brian Salazar to Editor

(July 14, 2014)
DMN Newswire--2014-7-14--
The Colonie, one of Chicago's top providers of creative editorial, finishing and motion design services for advertising, has promoted Brian Salazar to editor. 



The latest example of The Colonie's penchant for developing creative talent from within, Salazar began his career as an intern with the company in 2008. Having honed his skills as an assistant to editor and partner Bob Ackerman, he began making the transition to editor in 2010, cutting spots and other media for such brands as Levi's, ConAgra, Kellogg's and Pacific Gas and Electric. His latest work includes a series of web videos for ComEd's "Coolest Summer Ever Forever" promotion debuting this month. He collaborated on that project with a creative team from Leo Burnett. 

Salazar has proven his editorial chops, says Ackerman, and brings a different perspective to The Colonie's creative team. "Brian impresses me with his fresh and youthful approach to the craft of editing," Ackerman says.  "He often sees things form a perspective that I don't have, but when I see the end result I am blown away." 

"The Colonie has been fortunate to grow and expand quickly," Ackerman adds.  "We have talented people like Brian to thank, in part, for that growth."

After assisting Ackerman on campaigns for Dockers, Hallmark and many other accounts, Salazar got his first chance to cut on a 2010 in-store project for Dockers and Draft FCB, San Francisco. Shortly thereafter, he cut his first broadcast ad, a spot titled Big Sleep that was also for Dockers and Draft FCB. It debuted during pre-game programming for the 2011 Super Bowl. "I like cutting comedy," Salazar says. "I love storytelling and tugging at the heart-strings, as well." 

Ackerman believes Salazar will have an opportunity to edit a lot of projects in all those genres. "I think Brian will become a cornerstone of the post industry in Chicago," he says. "He has so much exuberance and excitement.  He's always learning and growing and he brings that to each and every job."
