Aired as part of Sheldon Whitehouse's successful 2012 Senate campaign. Produced by Z Tribeca, 2012
Mark Dayton- 9000 MILES
Aired throughout Minnesota as part of Mark Dayton's successful gubernatorial run. We added a little extra character to this political spot by making the footage interact with the text by tracking objects and drawing masks. Produced by Z Tribeca, 2010
Hillary Clinton- CHILDREN
Unfortunately, sometimes politics is not all handshakes and smiles. The most infamous ad of the 2008 election, Children, also known as "the 3 AM spot" was made from just a script and stock footage. The ad had its cultural moment when it was referenced for weeks in everything from SNL to the cover of the New Yorker.
Hillary Clinton- EVERYONE HAS A ROLE
This web video used to recruit volunteers for Hillary Clinton's 2008 presidential campaign presented a special challenge to edit because it was totally improvised by Rob Reiner and starred actual campaign volunteers instead of trained actors. 2008.
Bill Nelson- INNOVATION
John Kerry- HEART
The first presidential advertisement I ever edited, Heart was cut from hours of documentary style interviews with John Kerry and the friends and family who know him best. Produced by Z Tribeca (nee Z Creative), 2004
