Despite all the impressions Mike Jurkovac has scored for the many brands he’s partnered with over the years, none have been as important to him as the work he did with will.i.am for brand Obama. Their collaboration to produce the viral sensations YES, WE CAN and WE ARE THE ONES has been widely credited with changing the course of the 2008 Presidential Election. The videos won multiple awards – including the NAACP Image Award, a Cannes Titanium Lion and an Emmy – and delivered over one billion audited media impressions globally.
Getting results like this – emotionally compelling while highly effective – have been hallmarks of the work Mike has always been associated with. Over the course of his career he’s directed and/or produced over 700 TV specials, commercials and music videos, including recent campaigns for marketers such as RAM, Western Union, INTEL, UNICEF and Levi’s, and promos and programs for such networks as ABC, FOX, FX, TNT, ESPN, and Showtime.
