Editors Marc Langley & Michelle Czukar Celebrate National Canadian Film Day 150

On April 19th, to help promote and drive participation in National Canadian Film Day 150 in celebration of Canada’s 150th anniversary, Reel Canada, the non­profit that hosts NCFD, is launching a Canada-wide campaign developed by Leo Burnett Toronto.

The campaign kicks off with two cinema spots that came together with the help of Canadian film industry icons. “The Woman Who Can’t Lie” was directed by Don McKellar and stars Sandra Oh. “The Man Who Was Always Late” was directed by Atom Egoyan and stars Vinay Virmani. The spots are edited by Marc Langley (“The Woman Who Can’t Lie”) and Michelle Czukar (“The Man Who Was Always Late”). This was a fun project, one that we’re proud to have played a part in.

Michelle Czukar Makes It About Bensimon Byrne and Scotiabank

Scotiabank

Scotiabank and Bensimon Byrne wanted to show people how they’re making banking better. In “Downtime” we see people living their lives with easy accessibility to all the banking options available at Scotiabank. Michelle Czukar’s edit makes the most of Untitled Films director Hubert Davis’ look into the day-to-day. Uncovering the nuances and charm in each of the scenes while moving the story forward is one of Michelle’s specialties. It’s this sensitive touch that helps deliver the message that banking is about humanity.

For Pitch Perfect Collaboration, Working With Grip & KFC Is Music To Marc Langley’s Ears

KFC

       Parents understand how much time and sacrifice is poured into their kid’s after school activities. When their child finally reaches the spotlight, it makes it all worthwhile. Grip and KFC have tapped into this emotional moment in their latest spot edited by Marc Langley and directed by Sparks Productions’ Ben Liam Jones. Marc deftly creates a highly watchable, visual cut that shares the story of a Dad and his daughter as she learns how to play the piano. In “Theatre“, we see them both change throughout the years … ending with her first big concert, and the pride of a doting father. KFC’s Stephen Scarrow, Senior Marketing Manager, Advertising & Media, says “The KFC Canada team is exceptionally proud of the “Theatre” ad. Rooster did a great job editing the ad to maximize the emotional power of the story, weaving a story of a Father’s pride in his workmanship, and ultimately the pride of his daughter. This brand ad was produced to support KFC’s current “Colonel’s Way” campaign, an appreciation of Colonel Sanders’ values of hard work, pride and love for the work our cooks do in-store. Thank you Rooster for helping to create such a “Finger Lickin’ Good” ad!”
