Big news from Red Car/Chicago. Michael Coletta is joining the firm as a creative editor. Most recently on staff at Nomad Editing Co., Coletta is known as a natural storyteller with an emphasis on character-driven humor.
Throughout his career, Coletta has worked with a number of directors on high-profile advertising for clients ranging from Budweiser and Volkswagen to Verizon and Motorola. "Michael is such a well-known editor in New York," said Jennifer Lederman, Red Car's national managing director. "I've followed his work for years and was always hopeful that he'd join our team," added Lederman. Coletta will move to Chicago, and work closely with Red Car/Chicago managing director Craig Duncan.
Coletta studied film and photography at Columbia College in Chicago, where he trained as a photographer. While there, he quickly learned how uniting images to tell a story was a natural extension of his photographic process and vision. Coletta started his editorial career as an assistant at Skyview in Chicago.
