Get Out The Vote 2016

Given this year’s tumultuous elections, it was a priority for us at Whiteboard to get involved by doing what we do best. We partnered with ad agency Fenton and creative director Josh Gold to produce these four ads, that are currently airing across the country with the hope of improving voter turnout.

Here’s a few write-ups on the project so far:

Press Kitchen
Little Black Book


Director: Aaron Kodz

Going to the polls with your parents as a child is something you never forget. This ad shows a father bringing his son to the polls every four years. Many elections pass. One day the son goes to vote and brings a son of his own.

This cinematic and emotionally evocative style is the type of work that director Aaron Kodz is known for.

Baby Boy

Director: Michael Litwak

There is not much you can say to justify not voting, especially in this presidential election. In “Baby Boy” our protagonist Tony is playing a post-election game of Truth or Dare, when he is asked an unexpected question.

Director Michale Litwak’s whimsical humor convincingly brings this absurd scenario to life.

Danny Wantz – The Comeback King

“My first film out of film school was a rip on the Lebron James, Nike collaboration – ‘What Should I Do’. To my surprise, just about every news outlet in the country picked it up. When the door for Lebron to come back to Cleveland was left open, I decided it was the right time to make a follow up in hopes of luring him back to “The Land.” The Cleveland community really embraced this film. I still get emails about it to this day. Always proud to represent my city and make films about the things I am most passionate about.”
