CHICAGO, BOULDER and RALEIGH— 11 Dollar Bill, Raleigh, has added Matt Wade to its growing staff as senior editor and creative lead. Formerly with Futuristic Films, Denver, Wade brings experience spanning commercials, digital content, music videos and other media, including recent work for Colorado Lottery, Spotify and American Airlines.
“We’re thrilled to welcome Matt to North Carolina and 11 Dollar Bill,” says Managing Director Josh Eggleston. “His skills as a content creator and storyteller will be a great asset to our clients in Raleigh, and through 11 Dollar Bill’s studios in Chicago and Boulder. He is a wonderful collaborator and problem-solver. His positive attitude and fun-loving nature make him someone you are grateful to have in the room.”
Wade was senior editor at Futuristic Films for four years and previously held a post as editor at Denver agency Crispin Porter Bogusky. A graduate of Colorado State University, he got his start as a director and editor of music videos. More recently, he has focused on advertising and branded projects. He collaborated with Denver agency Cactus on several award-winning campaigns for the Colorado Lottery. He also edited several episodes of the short film series The Shadow Campaign for DPS Skis.
“I take great joy in telling stories, especially when I can make them shine in a way that’s unexpected,” he says. “In addition to serving the director or agency, I think it’s my responsibility to bring something extra to the project.”
Wade views his new role at 11 Dollar Bill as an opportunity to work on a diversity of creatively challenging projects and help the studio to grow. “It’s a great fit,” he insists. “It’s a fresh start, a chance to work with clients in a personal way and to build something new.”
