With a cluster of awards including Cannes gold’s for his Dutch Lottery spot, Grand Prix at Eurobest for his poignant l’Equipe French sports newspaper spot, he also has been named best director in Paris at the Hit d’Or advertising awards and received the same honors in Amsterdam at the annual gathering of the Dutch Art Directors club. Nice!
With his flare for comedic storytelling and strong visual narrative that can work with sandwiches or even the indomitable Mickey Rouke, we are proud to represent him in the USA.
Remember, directors are for life… Not just Christmas. We are so happy to be working with the Herman!
No Cars Were Harmed in The Making of this Film.
In this spot by our Wilfrid and Grey NY we see the emergency services dealing with the aftermath of an accident…
But hold, there’s no car.
That’s because thanks to Volvo’s new accident avoidance system…and a little Wilfrid movie magic, there was no accident.
Trip the light fantastic with Thwaites…
In this hypnotic film written by adam&eveDDB, The Thwaites takes us on a magical journey into the world of the Sony Xperia Z3. Filmed in the Argentine Andes using snowboarders covered in LED lights as they descend a wooded mountain at night.
The result is a visual poem of light that heightens the senses with a stellar cover of the song “Night Call” by London Grammar.
BRA CAM ‘Check Yourself Out’.
Ellen Kuras with McCann Paris have made this film to inspire and unite women in the fight against breast cancer.
Using bra-cam technology (a camera hidden in a bra), this film records the amount of ‘checks’ our actress receives throughout her day. Highlighting how many times a day women have their breasts ‘checked’ and asking them when was the last time they checked their own?
It is an important, fun and attention grabbing way of reminding women that checking their breasts regularly helps prevent breast cancer!
