Nice Shoes Brings Editor Rami D’Aguiar to North America


Award-winning editor Rami D’Aguiar has signed with leading studio Nice Shoes, augmenting a growing roster of creative directors, editors, VFX artists, and colorists. D’Aguiar has collaborated with agencies and top directors from all over the globe, cutting epic campaigns for brands such as Mitsubishi, Pepsi, Fiat, and Heineken amongst many others.


D’Aguiar’s work often takes brands through cinematic scenarios, which is especially true in the editor’s repeat collaborations with agency Africa and director Vellas for Mitsubishi, including a battle where warriors from throughout the ages attempt to thwart a Mitsubishi L200 Triton; an astronaut who mistakes an Outlander for a space shuttle; and a post-apocalyptic survivor who comfortably ambles through a hellish landscape in his car to find the best burger in town.

D’Aguiar comes to Nice Shoes through the efforts of the studio’s Executive Producer, Development, TJ Sponzo, who has had a focus on curating talent from around the globe, adding a variety of complementary artists so that Nice Shoes can present clients with the perfect custom team for any project.

“Rami has an infectious passion for commercial storytelling,” said Sponzo. “Whether he has a few minutes or 30 seconds of your time, he’s so skilled at crafting a story within a limited time frame, but at a massive scale. His enthusiasm shines through in every project he touches.”

D’Aguiar  has collaborated with agencies such as 72 & Sunny, BBDO Mexico, DDB Paris, Havas Paris, Leagas Delaney Italy TBWA UK, Grey NY, David, JWT, Ogilvy & Mather (Both Brazil & Chicago), Publicis, and W+K Brazil, and top production companies. While that has brought him in contact with quite a few North American creative teams, the renowned editor had been looking for a partner that he could have a more consistent presence with.

“I’ve been looking for a partner that would aid me in growing my international career,” said D’Aguiar. “I connected with TJ almost immediately, and with every person I’ve met at Nice Shoes I’ve felt a strong connection. I’m very excited to begin telling stories with their team and with their clients.”
