Francesco Lazzaro

I work with a fantastic group of designers, cinematographers, and editors at Kinopicz American.

Along with good friend and stalwart DP, Damian Woher, I founded Kinopicz in 2008 to provide a forward-looking digital cinema studio to the Columbus market, independent producers, and agencies everywhere.

Over the arc of my career, I've had the good fortune to know and work with so many inspired thinkers and leaders--men and women who've been my mentors in many disciplines (whether they knew it or not).

I enjoy collaborating with clients and colleagues where I can help the most:

• Concept development of film, video, and other media

• Creative direction emphasizing scriptwriting, visual communication, and sound design

• Outwitting the inevitable challenges of our shared marketplace

If you work in the world of advertising and entertainment, I invite you to visit us at kinopicz.com and imagine what work we might do together.

Jack Waldrip

Editing is quite literally part of Jack Waldrip’s DNA. His father was the Lighting Director at a Dallas public TV station and taught TV production at Jack’s high school. “I grew up around broadcast production. With access to my school’s film equipment, I learned to shoot and edit early on,” Jack says. He has been thriving in the film business ever since.  Jack founded charlieuniformtango with Lola Lott in 1996. His editing awards include a Cannes Lion, multiple ADDYs, a CLIO and an AICP, as well as a ‘Best Editor’ nomination at the International Monitor Awards three years in a row.  Waldrip has a reputation for being an editor with an opinion. His approach to editing is anything but mundane. With his sixth sense for finding the right take to make a story succinct, Jack always seems to know exactly how to make a story relevant and interesting. Whether he’s using multi-layer effects or simply letting the film’s action play out, Jack is universally regarded as one of the best at bringing a unique perspective to every project.

John Komnenich

John Komnenich

John Komnenich began his career in Chicago as an award winning film editor. The trenches of the dark editing room quickly taught John what worked and didn’t work from the footage delivered to him and to the golden rule of always having a lot of shooting options in the can, a philosophy that has served John well in his directorial career.
The background as an editor has had a significant influence on his work as a commercial director, a craft he has practiced for more than two decades, in the way he shapes stories, builds transitions and connects with viewers. Komnenich has directed commercials of all genres and product categories, applying the same passionate approach and craftsmanship to each project. He is best known for his skill in casting and directing talent, both professionals and real people. Memorable, natural performances are his trademark.
Komnenich has won numerous awards for directing, including an Emmy, Clios and One Show awards. His many clients include Disney, Kellogg's, Chevrolet, Budweiser, McDonald's, Kraft, Max Factor, Sears, and AllState.
In the third decade of his directing career, Komnenich continues to evolve. In recent years he has broadened the scope of his work to include viral advertising, webisodes and branded content in additional to traditional broadcast spots. He has also returned to his roots in editing, cutting many of his web-based projects. For the future, he is exploring opportunities in long-form entertainment and is currently developing projects for television.
Komnenich is married with 2 children, loves to ski, sail, play golf, and is always up to try a new recipe in the kitchen with his lovely wife.
