Watch Fearless Girl Creators Tali and Lizzie at Cannes 2017
Adweek managed to get Senior Copywriter Tali Gumbiner and Senior Art Director Lizzie Wilson -- two of the creative forces behind the groundbreaking “Fearless Girl” installation – to sit for an on-camera interview at Cannes. It’s been a whirlwind week for Tali and Lizzie, and the entire Fearless Girl team, as the work has picked up a slew of awards, starting strong on Day 1 of the festival with 3 Grand Prix wins (the first Grand Prix wins for McCann NY ever!). It has continued to pick up Lions hardware throughout the week. Very exciting for the team and for the entire agency.
Watch Tali and Lizzie talk about their experience so far at Cannes – a first time for both. In fact, neither of them has ever attended any kind of award show in the past. They also reveal some mishaps in the creation of Fearless Girl (an explosion occurred), their perspective on some of the controversy surrounding Fearless Girl and their hopes for the statue’s future
