At last evening’s 2015 AICE Awards in Los Angeles, Sam Ostrove of Cut + Run (Santa Monica) won a Best in Show award for his “moody and evocative” four-minute film for Volvo from the Swedish ad agency Forsman & Bodenfors. The film also won the AICE Award in the Automotive category for Ostrove.
The commercial was lauded for its combination of scenes of unique Swedish landscapes edited in “perfect syncopation” to Swedish singer/songwriter Amanda Bergman’s song “Vintersaga”.
Other notable wins came to editors Graham Chisholm of Married to Giants, Chris Franklin of Big Sky Editorial, Joe Guest of Final Cut, Nadav Kurtz of Cutters and Adam Pertofsky of Rock Paper Scissors. Each of these editors won in two AICE Awards categories.
