Rooster Post Production Editors Post Winning Nominations for the 2014 AICE Awards

Winning isn’t always everything, but it’s awfully nice to be in the running at the 2014 AICE Awards Show. Rooster Post Production is proud to congratulate and offer a well-deserved pat on the back to AICE-nominated editors Chris Parkins, Jesse Unruh, Dave De Carlo and Marc Langley.

Parkins and Unruh are recognised in the Regional Campaign category with best campaign work for Red Urban client Volkswagen GTD for “Ice Cream”, “Bellies” and “Pizza”, directed by Untitled Film’s Curtis Wehrfritz.

De Carlo is up for the best Spec Spot category for Engage Diamond Studio “The Artist” – a visually stunning piece in collaboration with The Corner Store Films’ talented director Anton Josef.

Last but not least, Langley gets the nod in two categories: the Alternative Media (:90 and Under) category, and the hotly-contested, 3-nominee Best of Toronto category. Both nominations are for the perennial favourite, Molson Canadian “Beer Fridge”, out of agency Rethink and directed by Partners Film Jonty Toosey.

Congratulations to everyone involved in these wonderful projects … fingers crossed! See all the AICE Nominations Here
