Shilo worked with Ford and Team Detroit on a campaign to launch the new Ford C-MAX Hybrid. Team Detroit identified Shilo because of the project for the ambitious production, VFX and post-production it required.
The campaign includes a series of broadcast spots, short brand films and other cross-media campaign assets featuring La Linea of the popular Italian animated series. “La Linea is generally known to be a masterpiece of animation,” Arthur said. “From the beginning, we were very focused on the direction of La Linea’s actions, especially given the importance of the transition to live-action,” Jose explained. La Linea’s agency, Quipos, worked with Shilo director Jose Gomez and executive producer Arthur Portnoy to give the character life.
Two of four :30 television spots recently launched with more spots and content debuting next year. Head on over to Shilo’s portfolio to watch the second television spot.

Todd Selby gave us a sneak peek at his new book, Edible Selby, over the weekend. We had a lovely selection of snacks and enjoyed a lively presentation by Todd himself at agency Mother‘s NY office. Mother is also the mastermind behind the book’s design, so it was appropriate that the Edible Selby launch kicked off at their offices. Todd also personally signed copies of the book, which was an extra special treat.
In the book, Todd focuses his lens on the kitchen, showcasing 40 international food figures and their gardens, homes, and restaurants. Each profile is accompanied by a watercolor illustration and handwritten questionnaire. Also included are some super cute magnets for your fridge.
