Agency honored for
television campaigns for FIDDLER ON THE ROOF and AMERICAN PSYCHO.

NEW YORK—It was an exhilarating night for AKA NYC at the
37th Telly Awards as the entertainment marketing agency won a total of seven
awards for its campaigns for the Broadway musicals FIDDLER ON THE ROOF and
AKA’s FIDDLER spot “Tradition
earned a Silver Award, the competition’s highest honor, in the category Entertainment.
It also picked up Bronze Awards for Directing and Cinematography. The agency’s spot
Selling Out” for AMERICAN PSYCHO
won four Bronze Awards for Entertainment, Directing, Editing and Graphics. Both
spots were directed by AKA NYC’s directing team Jamaal+Bashan.

AKA NYC is elevating the quality of Broadway advertising
through its daring and inventive concepts, and high production value. FIDDLER’s
“Tradition” captured the mesmerizing energy of Hofesh Shechter’s choreography by
placing a handheld camera directly in the midst of groups of dancers. The
agency evoked AMERICAN PSYCHO’s blend of sex, style and homicide in an ad where
the show’s protagonist, Patrick Bateman (Benjamin Walker), dancing to a Walkman,
is intercut with review quotes and flashes of Manhattan, sultry women and
bloody axes.

“We take people inside the mind of Patrick Bateman,” explains
AKA NYC Executive Creative Director Bashan Aquart. “It’s dangerous, but it’s also
raw and exciting. In Patrick’s mind, there is glass breaking, chainsaws are
roaring and butcher knives are flying across the room…yet, somehow, it’s all
still sexy.”
