AUCKLAND, Today: AUNZ production company Eight is celebrating its multiple nominations for the 2022 Axis Awards. The creative was out of DDB Aotearoa.
Directed by Eight’s Jamie Lawrence, Lotto New Zealand’s Imagine on Ice campaign has received a slew of nominations for its Editing, Visual Effects, Art Direction, Direction and Long-Form – Single. The campaign also picked up a gold at Spikes Asia last week.
Eight’s Courtney Brookes also secured another Emerging Talent nomination.
Eight director Jamie Lawrence said: “It’s bloody lovely to be recognised across so many categories. We really did have one of the best crews out there, from John Toon to Neville Stevenson to Kate McGill. I’m so proud of what we made together and I hope it does well for Eight.”
“The results come as DB export rolls out on screens across Australasia, also directed by Jamie and produced by NZ EP, Claire Kelly.
“Currently on set shooting with The Monkeys Aotearoa, Eight continue their 2021 growth trajectory this year with the launch of multiple brand campaigns including Southern Cross, Pepperstone, NZ Dairy, Eclipse Mints, Tip Top and the latest campaign for DB Export.
