Lola Lott, co-founder and CEO of charlieuniformtango, had humble beginnings in the mid-80’s working behind a desk at AMI, a Dallas-based post-production facility, and at the time, was just learning about the business. Jack Waldrip, a gifted, heavily sought-after editor freelanced there as well. Lola took note of his ability to command a room and his extensive technical expertise. Fate took the reins and nearly ten years later in 1995, they founded charlieuniformtango with 5 employees and a borrowed office space. One of their first jobs was editing a Super Bowl spot, their first of six more to come.
And the rest is history.
charlieuniformtango, AKA CUT, charlietango, and sometimes just charlie, has grown to be one of the largest and respected production facilities in the Southwest with a roster of over 40 editors, directors, engineers, audio mixers, 3D effects artists and more. Their client base includes numerous top advertising agencies from around the country and their work has earned dozens of industry accolades.
