From the 12th Annual Shorty Awards

Russian Doll - Date Announce

Finalist in Art Direction, Video

Entered in Short Form Video

About this entry

To announce the launch date of Russian Doll—Netflix's new existential comedy about a woman who falls (literally) into a Groundhog Day cycle of dying and ending back in the same place on the same day—we wanted to bring to life the metaphor of the show’s title by actually using a Russian doll.

Why does this entry deserve to win?

Built entirely in 3D, our Nadia doll slowly destroyed itself layer by layer using physical simulations, dynamics, and modern compositing techniques to expose a new doll, a new death, and a new date.


Our Russian doll date announce generated over 500K views across social and started a wave of conversation about Natasha Lyonne's newest comedy.
