52 Webby Nominations For The Shortlist Roster
The award season is starting to kick up in high gear and with that the Shortlist roster has racked up an impressive and quite frankly astonishing 52 Webby official and honorary nominations! HUSH, STOPP, B-REEL, TOOL of NORTH AMERICA, MOXIE PICTURES, LEGWORK, IGNITION and SOUTH Music & Sound Design all picked up nods!
The talented crew at Legwork was recognized for their innovative work on Paranorman’s official film site, done in collabortion with Wieden Kennedy, Portland, which you can check out here if you haven’t already!
Last year, Ignition had the opportunity to create massive online campaigns and experiences for The Hunger Games and Prometheus- everything from conception through execution- both of which were given nominations and recognition in multiple categories.
Tool of North America received more nominations and recognition than anyone else on the roster with a total of 17 tips of the hat! Interactive and integrated projects for Google, Virgin, JFK Museum, and a music video for Sigor Ros directed by Alma Har’el were some of the few to be selected.
Last and definitely not least, our latest roster addition, SOUTH Music & Sound Design was nominated for their NCAA Tournament work for AT&T.
A huge congratulations to our immensely talented roster! We are so proud and excited to be part of the team! We can’t wait to see what the rest of award season brings!

The Mission, 72andSunny And Samsung Are Already The Next Big Thing
The Mission continues their long list of high profile collaborations with this years two minute Super Bowl piece for Samsung out of 72andSunny. Not every spot has wall to wall VFX and CG (like W+K’s latest Nike spot also done by The Mission), sometimes you just need some polishing, clean-up and composting all handled with ease (and speed) within a crazy tight turnaround.
Check out the hilarious spot directed by Jon Favreau!
Moxie Pictures’ Frank Todaro and Martin Granger Bring It To The Big Game
Moxie Pictures directors, Frank Todaro and Martin Granger are Superbowl favorites and always bring the funny. This year was no exception with hilarious spots for NFL Network and Mio. Check them out below!
NFL - “Leon Sandcastle” Directed by Frank Todaro
MIO “Anthem” Directed by Martin Granger
Shortlist’s 2013 Super Bowl
Another year, another Super Bowl! In less than a couple days 100 million+ eyes will be glued to the tube and this year our roster has another slew of spots aimed to impress. There are even a couple interactive and experiential projects in the mix!
Tool of North America comes strong with everything from an in-stadium experiential installation crafted by Jason Zada and Jason Nickels that asks fans to do their best to “Out Ray, Ray Lewis,” to several game time ads.
Check out more about the project here.
Tool’s Erich Joiner, Tom Routson, Benji Weinstein and James Brown all have spots this year. Creativity featured part one of Erich Joiner’s three part “saga” for Gildan today, you can check out part one here:
Moxie directors and Super Bowl favorites Martin Granger and Frank Todaro each have work for MIO and the NFL, respectively and both of which are being saved for the big day.
The Mission is three for three with the Super Bowl since their inception and the second year in a row working with 72andSunny on Samsung. El Plato Supreme is the hilarious teaser but don’t forget to check out the two minute “special” during the game!
And last but definitely not least, Superfad and Cars.com teamed up with agency, Piston, to create several online experiences that will be launching coinciding with the game.
