For this week’s Throwback Tuesday, I’m moving back to 2008 to share what would’ve been my favorite ad of the year, if I had run a blog back then.
German studio Sehsucht (if there’s a German reading this post, please tell me how it’s supposed to be pronounced) created an incredible commercial promoting Hamburg’s annual film festival. The one-minute ad is a perfect mixture of pristine cinematography, spectacular visual effects and beautiful motion design, all flawlessly composited together, accompanied by an immersive soundtrack.
The short film expresses perfectly the various styles found in modern cinema, such as suspense, romance, horror, drama and more.
Late congratulations on a job well done, Sehsucht.
