The coolest image spot to come out of HBO in quite some time is all credited to EP Dan Zibulsky and his uber-fabulous editor, Akiko. What a smash they created with "Here We Come" - killer editing and catchy music by The Willows.
But when your spot is too cool and cutting edge, *sigh*, you make an alternative. This is where I come in. We were tasked with creating a second image piece - an emotional sell - to air in the much-anticipated Game of Thrones premiere break. I sat with Dan for 2 weeks to screen 8 series, 3 films, 3 specials and 2 documentaries, drum up some new music and write copy for what we deemed the "Moments" image piece. It was our promotional safety net in a crunch.
