Mace won Silver in the Broadcast category for the 'Here’s To The Us In Every Tusker' ad he directed in Kenya with Groundglass for Net#work BBDO. Mace was the only winner from Africa in the category. He was also shortlisted in the Changing The World Frame By Frame category for Tusker Flag 42.
In 2016, Mace won two Young Director Award Silvers for Gift in the Short Film category and The Bomb-Sniffing Rats Saving Lives in Mozambique in the Changing The World Frame By Frame category.
These are just the latest accolades for the 'Tusker' campaign, which has already picked up an African Cristal Film Grand Prix; two One Show craft merits; Creative Circle Ad of the Month; Ad of the Week from MarkLives; and a Special Mention on iDidTht’s SA Film Reel.
“We’re so proud of Dan and Vjorn,” says Egg Films’ executive producer, Colin Howard. “And we’re super excited about our future together.”
Since joining Egg Films in May, Mace has been directing campaigns for YouTube and Vodacom. He also has over 20 million views on Youtube and 70 000 subscribers to his DantheDirector channel.
