Tom Muldoon - Details


TOM MULDOON has worked on numerous commercials, music videos and trailers for television and motion pictures. He made his feature film-editing debut on Jerry Bruckheimer’s Armageddon.

Beginning as an assistant editor at San Francisco’s Varitel Video in 1980, he advanced to full time editor handling both off-line and on-line editing for Varitel’s television series projects. Two years later the company chose Muldoon to spearhead their first editing facility in the Los Angeles market and became the chief editor on Woman to Woman, their first series, which later won an Emmy Award. At the same time, music video television was evolving and Muldoon was at the forefront of the industry working on the first MTV series, The Cutting Edge.

In 1986 Muldoon left Varitel to embark on a freelance career and quickly found work at all the top production facilities in Hollywood. A year later he became post-production supervisor and associate director for CBS’s Flip, and soon after left for Japan to direct and edit segments for ABC’s prime time variety special Look of the Year. He also developed and edited ABC’s 1989 and 1990 fall promotional campaigns.

As the music industry grew, Muldoon focused his attention on editing videos for such high profile artists as Michael Jackson, Tom Petty, Harry Connick Jr., Mariah Carey and Jon Bon Jovi.

In 1992 Muldoon and three partners founded their own commercial post-production editorial company, Superior Assembly Editing Company. A major force in the commercial market, the company maintains thriving relationships with DDB Needham Worldwide, Weiden & Kennedy, Ogilvy & Mather and Hal Riney & Partners. They not only edit award winning commercial campaigns for Coca-Cola, Nike, Miller Brewing, Isuzu and many others, but they also handle motion picture trailers and promotions for film and television.

In late 1995 Muldoon, along with John Murray and Scott Carleton, formed Nomad Editing. Since its inception, Nomad has positioned itself as one of the leading creative post-production companies in the highly competitive commercial market.
