Filmography 2010

Sent to me by an aspiring screenwriter friend. Watch it. It’s nuts good. And then check out the interview with the creator, Gen Ip (awesome name).

Roger Federer: Love Fifteen

Epic people celebrating an epic man in a sweet video. To send an insignificant-by-comparison message to Roger, visit Nike Tennis. Wish this video was brought to my attention before the last post. Also wish I came up with the phrase ‘Love Fifteen’.

Stop Motion Printing

Great stop motion video by Matt Robinson and Tom Wrigglesworth in response to HP’s brief: “Present an idea which promotes HP Workstations ability to bring to life anything the creative mind can conceive.” The video ended up winning second place at D&AD’s Student Awards Annual.

Ignore those Super Bowl ads at least until I inevitably blog about some of them (Cash4Gold anyone?). I want to talk about Cadbury.

Can people see through these campaigns, and will they be offended by the assumptions that marketer’s make of consumers? Yes, yes, and no.
