CHECK OUT SOME PRESS, INTERVIEWS AND REVIEWS:
HitFlix - ”I highly recommend you give yourself a circle-circle-dot-dot and head out to catch “Cooties” for yourself.”
Hollywood Reporter - “Effects work is excellent and receives just the right amount of attention from Milott and Murnion”
TwitchFilm - “Though the content is very different the tone is not wildly far away from films like Tremors or Gremlins”
IndieWire - “The result is both effectively terrifying and hilarious.”
SlashFilm - Cooties is a fun, funny and gory zombie romp.
In addition to the long form one minute version, we worked with our editor, Ed Einhorn, and BBDO to create a series of Youtube Windows. Windows are the clickable boxes on Youtube videos. We singled out specific moments and manipulated the time and speed to make wacky loops.
Cary & Jon worked with Team Detroit to launch this holiday campaign promoting the 2015 Ford Fusion, entitled “It’s the Most Distracted Time of the Year”.

Cary & Jon directed 4 spots for Capital One promoting their new Mobile app. The App lets you bank where ever so you can keep doing what you’re doing, even if you’re shredding guitar on a flying asteroid — like DragonForce, the power metal band known for their extreme skills at shredding. They are famous for the ‘hidden track’ on Guitar Hero ‘Through the Fire and Flames’. The track for the Capital One spot is a new, original song written especially for this project.
Along with DragonForce, the other spots feature a ventriloquist (is this thing on??), a DJ Un1corn, and modern dance.
Cary & Jon worked closely with R/GA to develop the visual language and humor for each spot, executing a unique treatment to fit each type of scenario. Whether it be the outer space finale for DragonForce, the gorgeous 80′s style double-exposure for ‘Dummy’, or the over-the-top glowing horn on the mask of DJ Un1corn, we wanted to stick our toe out past the edge of going too far.

Shortest Race = 39.9 inches
Winner = $700
When Nike asked Honest to create their own vision of speed for Nikelab’s “The Art of Speed,” Honest asked: What could be faster than the shortest race? Blink and you’ll miss it.
Watch 34 competitors battle it out — through injuries, confusion, and personal differences — until a winner is crowned and $700 in prize money is claimed.
The :60 TV spots, directed and produced by Cary & Jon for Nike’s Joga Bonito campaign, was created with the intent of prompting web users to generate their own video segment and submit it to the world’s longest soccer chain.
Filmed across ten states, each video started with a soccer ball entering at the left of frame and eventually exiting at the right — a simple action that could easily be adapted and then filmed by others, with the results eventually edited together to make the chain extend even further.
