Jarrad Quadir (Class of 2012) Editor

Jarrad Quadir (2012) is currently an assistant editor at Utopic, a post-production house in Chicago. Utopic mainly works with various ad agencies in the city (Leo Burnett, InVnt, CK, etc). “It’s an amazing job, I wish I could’ve gotten right out of school, but it took a couple of years to get here,” said Jarrad. “I had various odd jobs including working as a freelance videographer/ editor at companies like EXACT Sports and Homefinder.”

One of the things Jarrad loves about working at Utopic is that the company size is rather small. “Utopic being a smaller company (16 people), I get to actually edit and do motion graphics, My first spot went to air back in June, and since then I’ve gotten to do a lot more.”

Another great thing about working at Utopic is the amount of side projects the employees have going on Jarrad explained. “One of my editor’s, Craig Lewandowski, and I just did the 48 hour film festival with a group of agency people. Although we didn’t win best picture, we did win best editing.”
