Samuel & Gunnar states, “We jumped at the chance to reunite with our friend Mark Kovacs and the Bodega family, joining a talented group of people. We’re excited to tell our beautiful and cinematic stories, and to create new memories along the way.”

BODEGA Executive Producer Mark Kovacs notes, “I’m thrilled to be working with this talented team once again. Their global directing experience is perfectly aligned with today’s production needs.”

Samuel & Gunnar’s work has received countless awards and nominations from organizations such as British Arrows Awards, Cannes Lion, The Icelandic Advertising Awards, The Digiday Awards, Epica Awards, Telly Awards, Effie
