Director Tony Petrossian Caps 2012 with Top Honors from Shoot Magazine
Los Angeles, Calif. (PRWEB) February 06, 2013
Director Tony Petrossian wrapped up a successful 2012 by grabbing a top honor from SHOOT Magazine for a commercial featuring digital seagulls performing I Ran (So Far Away) the ubiquitous hit track from Flock of Seagulls. The Petrossian-helmed spot for Cape Cod Chips was named The 2012 Best of The Best Work You May Never See and also earned the overall runner-up position for Top FX Spot of the Year after garnering #1 Top FX Spot of the Summer, months earlier.
I worked on some great projects in 2012, notes director Tony Petrossian, who regularly works with top talent and brands around the world. But it was those four wacky waterfowl that really stole the spotlight. Such divas.
The Cape Cod Potato Chips spot features an all-bird CG version of iconic 80s group Flock of Seagulls, performing the bands biggest hit to the delight of a nearby beachgoer while he snacks on the chips. The concept from GKV advertising in Baltimore was shot in Malibu with CG and post work completed at Rhythm +Hues. Petrossian remained actively involved all the way through to the spots delivery.
