The 54th D&AD Professional Awards Ceremony took place on 19 May in London recognizing the best creative from around the world.
Pereira O'Dell's Herzog Documentary 'Lo & Behold' was awarded a Yellow Pencil in Entertainment (Non-Fiction Film). The documentary, created for Netscout, made its documentary premiere at the Sundance Film Festival in January 2016 to critical acclaim.
"Lo and Behold, Reveries of the Connected World" explores the digital transformation of our world. It examines both the power and fragility of our connected world, featuring tech leaders such as Elon Musk and Sebastian Thrun and taking in phenomena like self-driving cars, soccer-playing robots and the likelihood of life on Mars.
"What started out as interviewing a handful of subjects about the state of connectivity, quickly turned into a cornucopia of footage that was destined to become something much bigger," said Herzog in a statement. "The project took a life of its own, and size, and substance, and everything pointed to the direction of a feature-length documentary."
"Lo and Behold, Reveries of the Connected World" will be distributed in spring 2016 in theaters via Magnolia Pictures.
