University of Phoenix “We Can Do IT”

In this new CG spot addressing the gender gap in technology for University of Phoenix, Hornet directors Dan & Jason return to the emotional approach they used so effectively in their 2015 breakout work for Cineplex.

“Traditionally in the past, girls had been raised to think that the tech world was not a place for them. And while we have seen a giant push towards teaching young girls that there is a space for them, there will be an abundance of new jobs in technology over the next few years and we need a workforce to fill those roles now.

“This is the brief we received from 180LA, and it resonated strongly with our directors and the team here at Hornet.

“Evoking the enduring spirit of Rosie the Riveter, even more relevant with the turbulent times we are seeing throughout the world, this campaign is a rallying call to women everywhere that they can fight for a deserved and equal place at the table, and there is a path towards developing a set of skills that can arm them to nimbly and flexibly adapt and carve out a future for themselves.”
