The Band's Visit Launch

Ever been emotionally captured by a musical before? This is a show you don't want to miss! Our editor, Miky Wolf, and the Big Sky Effects team had an amazing time working with AKA and directors Jamaal Parham and Bashan Aquart on The Band's Visit, as well as the audio mixer Michael Levesque at Plush, colorist Mikey Rossiter at The Mill, and online editor/VFX artist Nic Seresin. 

Performances begin October 7th at The Ethel Barrymore Theatre and November 9th with an opening night set. 

Nationwide Brad & Peyton

What's better than Peyton Manning singing the Nationwide jingle over a chicken parm sandwich? Or Brad Paisley singing about Nationwide's retirement plans? Brad and Peyton jamming together as they find the perfect song/jingle balance! 

Last night at the ESPY awards, the below Jingle Teaser :60 spot aired, and so began the beginning of a new campaign all about Brad and Peyton's 'teamwork' to further the Nationwide brand.

Our editor Chris Franklin put together the spots below, directed by Jody Hill at Caviar, with some of our long time pals at Ogilvy. We also worked on these spots with audio engineer Tom Jucarone at Sound Lounge and colorist Chris Ryan at Nice Shoes. Watch the videos below and be on the lookout for more fun to come later this summer and fall!

MasterCard 'A Pelican Took My Wallet'

Wouldn't you agree it's hard to beat a spot with an animal? At least we think so after working on this MasterCard spot with McCann featuring a pelican!

Our editor, Chris Franklin, alongside director Chris Smith from Smuggler, put together a spot where a hiker loses his wallet to promote the benefits of the digital Masterpass app. 

Tim Masick from Company 3 was the colorist, and David Papa from Sonic Union was the sound engineer. Check it out below.

Nature's Bounty 'All of Us'

We loved working with the Nature's Bounty team over at Droga5 on the below spot, shot by director Autumn de Wilde. Our editor Miky Wolf put this together with colorist Tom Poole at Co3, and audio engineer Philip Loeb at Heard City. Watch the spot below, and remember to take your vitamins, even on a long holiday weekend! Happy Fourth of July, everyone!

Boston Scientific Watchman "Daughter"

Our editor Valerie Laser and the agency Heartbeat Ideas teamed up on a non-traditional pharma spot to introduce 'Watchman', a device from Boston Scientific that helps those who suffer from the heart condition Atrial fibrillation. 

The spot was directed by Lance Edmands of Washington Square Films, the color was handled at the Mill with Mikey Rossiter, and the spot was mixed with Glen Landrum at Sound Lounge. 

Watch the spot below and be on the lookout for it airing now:



Nespresso & George Clooney: Comin' Home

We're incredibly excited to share Nespresso's latest spot, called 'Comin' Home', which our editor Chris Franklin worked on with the amazing team over at McCann NY (Kathy Love, Larry Platt, Danny Rodriguez, Nic Howell, Geoff Bentz, & Dana McCullough). 

Directed by Grant Heslov and his team at Untitled, the spot follows George, with the expert help of Framestore NY, as he sets off on an adventure to head back home for that perfect cup of coffee. He makes his way with the aid of Kermit & Fozzie Bear from "The Muppets Movie", Burt Reynolds from "Smokey and the Bandit", Janet Leigh from "Psycho", John Candy from "Planes, Trains & Automobiles", Peter Fonda & Dennis Hopper from "Easy Rider", and "Seabiscuit". All set to Mel Torme's classic take on "Comin' Home, Baby".
