Hybrid Signs SNL Editor Adam Epstein
Press release from Hybrid Edit:
Says Hybrid Executive Producer Gail Butler, “Adam’s work, much of which is seen weekly during ‘Saturday Night Live,’ is the perfect complement to our existing roster of talent. Consider the exceptional level of work he delivers on the ‘SNL’ broadcast/content pieces, which has an intense 1-2 day turnaround. This is a testament to his inherent talent and work ethic. I’ve had the pleasure of working with Adam previously and knew I wanted to work with him again. And fortunately that time is now as we extend our reach into the East Coast market. Hybrid looks forward to bringing Adam and our clients together to collaborate in the advertising, marketing and branding space.”
Said Epstein, “In any career, but especially in post production, you want to ensure that you are working with the most talented, and the most wonderful people possible. I’ve known Gail, Michael and Susan for more than a decade, and I have nothing but the utmost respect for their work, their talent and their business savvy. This is a really nice fit for me. Being bi-coastal, I will be able to work on any commercial project that comes along through Hybrid in New York City, LA and all places in between.”

Prior to moving to New York, Adam lived in Los Angeles, where he worked as a freelance editor for a number of commercial and promo houses. This exposure to the fast paced world of high-end post-production came under the tutelage of some of the finest editors and directors in the business. He started his career at award-winning marketing agency and production company Stun Creative as a producer and editor, before transitioning into the commercial world via Red Car, Los Angeles.
A graduate of UCLA, where he helped start the school's first comedy TV show, Adam is a fan of sandwiches, basketball, surfing, and puns. He also holds the dubious distinction of being a loser on “Jeopardy."
