Whistler Film Festival

Major film fests’ ads have a history of usually being pretty good (it would be a shame if they weren’t…). The Whistler Film Festival is no exception this year, with this animated short to promote their 2011 edition.

As boring as it may seem in the first minute, the Tokyoplastic-directed ad quickly becomes bold and surprising. Not only is the production excellent, as we’ve come to expect from the London-based studio, but the voice acting is also very believable, in both the fairy-tale and gangster moods of the commercial.



Let’s colour with Dulux

This ad is generating a lot of buzz on blogs and artsy websites everywhere. This beautiful concept from Euro RSCG, called Let’s colour, for Dulux paint manufacturer brought over 250 people from Brazil, London, India and France to paint their grey, concrete neighborhoods in bright colors, while Stink Digital and director Adam Berg (who is well-known for his Carousel ad for Philips) captured the whole thing in time-lapse mode to create a visually-stunning 60-second spot.

Dulux is also releasing a documentary on the whole process of this renewal of the neighborhoods, and the first part is already available on Youtube.

Be sure to check this one out, because I have a feeling that this ad will make history, along the likes of the Sony Bravia ads. Good job to Adam Berg who never ceases to amaze me.

Target’s Liberty of London

Is it just me or is Target on another level of visual advertising right now ? In the 6-7 years I’ve watched publicity closely, I just can’t remember seeing one bad Target ad. They just all look amazing, and their latest one is no exception. For the launch of their partnership with fashion icon Liberty of London, they released a 30-second spot portraying people in bigger than nature environments.

This beautiful piece was created by Peterson Milla Hooks Advertising, a Minneapolis-based agency.

New montage from Michael Moloney

London’s Michael Moloney Studio launched a quality new reel. I like how their style is very various throughout the montage. Take a look at their portfolio, it’s worth it.
