Having worked with clients such as Wieden + Kennedy, Ogilvy, Mother, DDB, Saatchi & Saatchi, McCann, BBDO, J. Walter Thompson, 22Squared, Tiffany & Co., PepsiCo., Draft/FCB, Mozilla, AMC, Comedy Central, Terence Ziegler's innate versatility lends itself to visual story telling and design oriented work. He has been editing commercials, promos, music videos and films for over 18 years.
His recent work includes spots for AMEX out of Ogilvy; Tide, Cheerios, Walmart for Saatchi & Saatchi NY; ESPN for Wieden + Kennedy; Comcast via Digitas and Berlin/Cameron; Abbot Labs via SaatchiHealth and Cibavision via DDB in New York.
In addition to his commercial work, Ziegler directed and edited Jesus Was a Commie, a short film starring Matthew Modine. The film won Best Short Film at Michael Moore's Traverse City Film Festival, as well as numerous other international awards. It was their third collaboration.
He also cut the award-winning Apsara, a short from director Colin McGreal which was screened at festivals around the world. Ziegler also enjoys the visual effects/3D design side of post-production.
Ziegler graduated from the University of Michigan, where he had studied Film & Biology. Seeking work in film production, he secured an interview for an office PA position at Woody Allen's production company. Ziegler moved out to New York just for the interview. But fate would intervene. Instead, Ziegler took a job as the staff photographer in a neuroscience lab. There he photographed brains, and got his feet wet in advertising, shooting print commercials for science journals. Ziegler stumbled into editing, when he dropped by the now-defunct Invisible Dog to visit a friend. Something inspired him to sign on as an assistant editor. Rapid promotion followed, and Ziegler realized he had a natural affinity for editorial. Soon, he was cutting spots, the first of which was US West "Your Neighbors", directed by Michael Grasso. The spot aired on the Super Bowl. Over the next few years, Ziegler's reputation grew, and he eventually moved to Chemistry (formerly Slingshot).
He has been on staff at jumP, Company X, The Well, RhinoFX and Invisible Dog.
He is based in New York City and Los Angeles.
