We’re in a flood of new productions this season, and our teams are shooting nationwide. You might have spotted us behind the cameras filming a promo for a national TV network; coaxing family pets to look even cuter than usual; adding some warmth and humanity to a hospital setting; or getting behind the wheels (literally)…

On the creative side, and continuing our long…

We are thrilled to annouce that we’ve been nominated for (UPDATE: WE WON!) an Imagen Award for our AARP spot, filmed for the wonderful folks at the Alma Advertising Agency.

We’re on a roll this month with more international awards coming in… Thanks to the excellent creative minds at Alma ad agency, plus the Ad Council and AARP, “Spoon” has taken home a Silver from the USH Idea Awards and a Bronze from the Wave Festival.

We wrote a TV campaign that will start airing not just nationwide but globally later this Spring… Teamed up to write with some really great producers on two international feature film co-productions… Were the…
