Top Spot of the Week: Noam Murro Directs "General Howe's Dog" For Pedigree, BBDO NY
This film, created by BBDO New York and directed by Noam Murro of Biscuit Filmworks, re-creates the true story of American revolutionary soldiers finding their sworn enemy British General William Howe’s dog wandering in their camp after their crushing defeat at the battle of Germantown.
Despite the moment and the circumstances, George Washington decides to return the dog to its owner, General Howe, rather than using it to exact revenge. It’s an inspirational and touching story pulled from the pages of history that brings to life the timeless truth that dogs bring out the good in all of us.
