Andrea MacArthur and Amanda Perry Join Union
Editors Andrea MacArthur and Amanda Perry, whose work individually and as a team has garnered Cannes Lions, D&AD Pencils, AICP Show honors and other industry accolades, have joined Union Editorial. MacArthur and Perry come over from Lost Planet, and maintain their own company, Bread and Butter.
MacArthur, whose spots can tug on heartstrings (Budweiser’s “Puppy”), go for laughs (Lyft’s “Riding is the New Driving”), or deliver humor with a message (Barbie’s “Imagine”), observed, “It’s easy to get pigeon-holed, but I was very lucky with Dante (Ariola) in that he was just comedy at first, then evolved into special effects, and I had the opportunity to evolve along with him.”
Similarly, Perry leaps from powerful human interest spots (“Water is Life”) to smart comedy (Netflix’s “Sara”) and everything in between. “I started off doing comedy thanks to Andrea’s introductions, and as I grew as an editor, I got to do different kinds of things,” Perry recalled. “Regardless of genre, we love any opportunity to tell a good story.” Overall, said MacArthur, “Amanda and I feel very comfortable fighting against stereotype.”
