Cutter is excited to announce the addition of three-time Emmy-winning filmmaker, documentarian, and military veteran Jim Fabio to our roster of directors. With an extensive background in television and film production that encompasses sports, children’s and Air Force combat filmmaking; Jim communicates stories that are enthralling to watch. Recently, he has chronicled the pro football season for the Emmy-winning series The NFL Season, and in 2013 garnered the Sports Emmy Award for Outstanding Short Feature for Immaculate Remembrance. See Jim’s work here.
Sometimes working on location means shooting on three continents. Season One of the docuseries Why English Matters took Cutter to Central and South America. Season Two, to Tokyo, and the first episode, which highlights global firm KPMG, is now online. Directed by award-winning filmmaker Marcelo Bukin, the series tells the stories of employees of global firms who must become fluent in English to succeed. See the series, and look for more Tokyo-based episodes soon.

Global agency MRM//McCann kept us extremely busy this year as we prepared each episode for its release on WhyEnglishMatters.com by client ETS/TOEIC. The first season, which the team produced in Brazil, Chile and Costa Rica, was directed by award-winning filmmaker Marcelo Bukin and tells the stories of the employees of global firms who become fluent in English to succeed in the world market.
We were thrilled to welcome Brittany Rostron as Head of Production in August, a move that gives the Cutter team even more depth and versatility. Bringing with her ten years of diverse experience in feature film, TV, and digital content, she has held positions ranging from line producer to location scout to script coordinator on films such as Men in Black III and The Smurfs Movie, television series such as The Knick and Nurse Jackie, and commercials for clients such as Under Armour and MTV. Before breaking into entertainment, Brittany traveled the country with retired NFL superstar Joe Montana during her tenure as a senior account executive for public relations firm Chamberlain Communications.
Hillary and then-freelancer Brittany, wrapped a three-part docu-series for client Under Armour and Macy’s. Shot in black and white by Sheldon Candis, who helmed the 2012 Sundance feature LUV, the series profiles ballerina Misty Copeland, the first African American woman soloist at the American Ballet Theatre in twenty years. It’s the latest in Under Armour’s “I Will What I Want” campaign for women, which also features Gisele Bündchen and others. View the promo.
