Starring JB Smoove (Curb Your Enthusiasm) and new Spidey Tom Holland, this theatrical entry marries Audi Intelligent Technologies with the rebooted Sony Pictures Spiderman franchise, as it turns a typical “Driver Test” into a superhero-thwarting-a-bank-robbery experience. Would you expect anything less from Peter Parker? Additional Union credits include Executive Producer Joe Ross, Managing Partner Michael Raimondi and Assistant Editor Jed Stuber.

Edited by Union’s Marco Perez, created in-house via CNN and directed by Klaus Obermeyer, “Why We Go” is part of the network’s “Go There” brand identity campaign. Since its 2014 launch, the campaign has showcased the unique ways in which CNN gathers and tells a story. This year’s brand anthem builds on that theme with an authentic glimpse of how and why CNN journalists choose to go. Last month, “Why We Go” was honored with the Emmy ® Award for Outstanding Promotional Announcement at the 38th Annual News and Documentary Awards. Additional Union credits include Producer Lauren Hafner Addison, Managing Partner Michael Raimondi and Assistant Editor Mauro Rossi.
