Shots Awards "The Boat"

January 17th 2020

And just like that, it’s advertising awards season already. Again. Still. Here’s a funny film we scored for the Shots Awards that illustrates the great lengths to which people will attempt to take credit for award winning work. Thanks to BBH New York, Emerald Pictures, The Mill Mackcut and Sound Lounge for reaching out to JSM Music for this little window into our world. Good stuff. #teamwork #shotsawards.…/view/shots-awards-the-americas-sets-sail.
