ADWEEK's ADFREAK column featured the Disney Parks “Unforgettable Stories” video piece highlighting the Mansfield Family.

ADFREAK notes the tremendous success of the video which at the time of publication had over 11 million views across Facebook and YouTube.
Tribeca Film Festival is expanding its slate of VR content with 23 exhibits and interactive installations at this year’s event. Picrow’s Gregory Nussbaum worked with writer/director Scott Stewart (Priest, Legion) to edit the film Christmas VR, his segment of the horror anthology film Holidays. Christmas VR is about a man who “stoops to dangerous new lows to get his son the ultimate VR headset for Christmas” and stars Seth Green (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, The Italian Job) and Clare Grant (Walk the Line). This film is produced along with virtual reality studio Wevr.
Yellow Shoes and The Hall's Unforgettable spot for Disney featuring the Mansfield family finally hit the internet on Monday after spending some time being featured as an in-theater promo before Star Wars: The Force Awakens and as a broadcast spot on the Disney Channel.

In their April 12 issue, Adweek notes Unforgettable has logged over 11 million views on Facebook and Youtube!
Manny, Sheena, Shaylee, and Ivy were a dream to work with, and have kept us in the loop on how the piece is being received by the Deaf community which has been very important to us. So far, we're incredibly proud of the feedback, including this open letter from the California Association for the Deaf.
