AWARDS & SPECIAL MENTIONS

Finetune Studios won a Gold Award in 2017’s Loeries in the category of radio/recording companies and was featured in Callsheet magazine – Africa’s leading film industry magazine – in issue 08 2017.


This followed the win of a Gold Cannes Lion at the prestigious annual Cannes Lion International Festival of Creativity Awards Ceremony in 2017. Finetune Studios in partnership with Grey South Africa scooped this award for their collaborative masterwork campaign for Duracell Duralock technology. The campaign was an inspiring nostalgic 10 year flashback of notable political events, passing trends and celebrity news between 2007 and 2017, demonstrating how much can happen in 10 years, which is the guaranteed shelf life of Duracell’s Quantum batteries. Finetune’s selection of music, crisp-and clear recording and direction of the voiceover, mixing and skilful mastering of the final radio spot collectively formed Finetune’s offering to this campaign.
