Edit, Sound Design, Graphic Design: Niall Farrelly
“I love how human this spot is, given that it’s for a data company, which is ostensibly a cold product. I also love that I didn’t know where this was going or what product it was advertising until the very end, which felt like a nice, earned surprise. Keeping the tone of the VO light and jovial was a smart touch, as not to emotion-signal. The writing and editing were great as well.” – Sophia Lou
BEST MOVIE TRAILER
Matthäa Gerner, WILD
