Detroit-Based Post House Elevates Talented Editor Based On Creative Contributions and Tech Skill Set
DETROIT, MI – Hudson, the full-service creative production and post studio founded in 2013, announced the promotion of Annette Gianino to Creative Editor. She joins a creative team that includes Sr. Creative Editor Rich Smith; Audio Engineer Spencer Hall; and Finishing Editor Kelsey Ross.
“Annette is a thoughtful, organized editor that has proven she can manage large, complex projects, evidenced by the fact she recently landed a large GM project based on work she did with the client prior to her promotion,” Kristin Redman, Managing Director, EP, says. “The door is wide open for her.”

In her six years at Hudson, Gianino has steadily risen up the company’s creative ladder, starting in 2015 as an Assistant Creative Editor, to her new position as Creative Editor. Prior to joining Hudson, Gianino showed great promise not only in the craft of film editing but also in the filmmaking process overall. In 2014 she served as Property Production Assistant on the Warner Bros. feature film "Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice"; and in 2013 as Set Decorating Production Assistant on Paramount’s “Transformers 4: Age of Extinction.”
For Gianino, helping clients realize what their project could become beyond their original vision, and collaborating as a team to create a story that’s better than could have been imagined, is her favorite part of the process.
“Over the years, I’ve learned to balance both being more decisive and recognizing early on if something is going to work or not, but also leaving options open and recognizing that experimenting with your edits is important to spark the imagination,” Gianino says. “Balancing both of those is the creative challenge that keeps me moving forward.”
Gianino’s show reel includes stand-out work for clients ranging from Rocket Mortgage to Little Caesars, as well as a myriad of auto clients Hudson is known for. Perhaps the most affecting work on her reel is for the Jewish Federation of Detroit and their “We Need To Talk” campaign that focused on mental health in teens.
“Annette showed her sensitivity, perspective, and storytelling skills with these raw, unscripted, and challenging spots,” Larry August, Director/Owner of Hudson, says. “The stories were sometimes difficult to put together in a coherent way, but she championed this project and pushed hard to tell each story the best way possible, and gained award-winning recognition for this work. She possesses considerable gifts as a sensitive, perceptive storyteller and we are fortunate to have her as part of our creative team.
