Choice Cuts

By Tk Published on .

The first annual Association of Independent Editors (AICE) Editing Awards Show, held November 7 before a packed house at Pier 60 in New York, was an undisputed hit. Especially for New York post house Go Robot, which took home four of the 10 Best Editing trophies, after the 247 entries were cut to 30 finalists. All of Go Robot's winners, interestingly, are from O&M/New York. Company founder Adam Liebowitz (seen here) won for American Express' "Manhattan" (directed by Joe Pytka), as well as IBM spots "Harlem Fencer" (directed by Radical's Len Dorfman) and "Supermarket" (also Pytka). Liebowitz's colleague J.J. Lask won for IBM's "Senegal Women's Basketball," also directed by Dorfman. "I certainly hoped to win something, since I had four spots in the finals, but this was an embarrassment of riches," says Liebowitz. As far as the O&M connection goes, "We're not bought and paid for," he laughs. "But we do have a good relationship with them, and all their spots have a personality, which we try to help bring out. So they'll indulge us - as long as we can explain why it's a good cut."
