26 Pencils at the
D&AD Awards!

We’re jumping for joy! Last night, Final Cut work took home a whopping 26 Pencils at the D&AD Awards, including two Black Pencils and two Silver Pencils for Channel 4’s ‘We’re the Superhumans,’ edited by the inimitable Joe Guest with Blink director Dougal Wilson for the coverage of the 2016 Rio Paralympic Games! Joe took home a Silver Pencil for Editing for Film Advertising for his work, no easy feat.

In addition, John Lewis unforgettable ‘Buster’ took home another Silver Pencil, this one for TV Commercial in the 61-120 category. Edited by founder Rick Russell and helmed once again by Dougal Wilson for John Lewis with adam&eveDDB.

We offer a humble thanks to all of our collaborators over this past year. Proud to have created some truly memorable work with you!

For our complete list and all the winning work, read (and watch) on!
