Feed This Cat Your Art

Wednesday, August 27, 2014


Laser Cat, the giant cat head sculpture that projects art via lasers out of its eyes, is coming to Canada.

The ADC-commissioned Laser Cat from the Barcelona-based art duo Hungry Castle, will be on display from Sept. 10 to 14 at the Beakerhead festival for art, science and engineering in Calgary. On Sept. 13 it will project personal art projects made by creatives from the ad industry.

People can submit an image, gif or video of their masterpiece on feedlasercat.com. All art is accepted except for commercial work.

The story-tall cat head is one part Japanese Maneki-neko, one part Egyptian Mau, and was first shown off at ADC’s annual award show in Miami back in April. To date, more than 15,000 works have been uploaded to Laser Cat. Since its south Florida unveiling, Laser Cat has beamed down in Barcelona, with plans afoot to take it to New York, London, and Dubai.

This is Painful to Watch

Wednesday, August 20, 2014

Rethink’s latest for Science World is painful to watch…in the best possible way. Who knew a kick in the groin could be so educational?

Directed by OPC//FamilyStyle and Recommended director Chris Woods, the ad made for the children’s science museum won’t be allowed to air on television. Canadian censors deemed the script too violent for TV. Good thing there’s the internet.

Here are some other favourite facts that Rethink has brought to life over the last 13 years for Science World.

Shout out to my friends at Crush who did the VFX. Full credits.

Wowzers. EA Sports has put together one crazy feast for your eyes in their latest for Madden 15.

The three-and-a-half minutes long film features Kevin Hart and Dave Franco (I didn’t know James had a brother) performing in an outrageous mini-musical.

San Francisco agency Heat created the spot, that’s directed by Hungry Man’s Wayne McClamm and edited by Arcade Edit’s Christjan Jordan.

Full credits.

You Look Like Garbage

Wednesday, August 13, 2014

Photographer James Ostrer’s latest project, called “Wotsit All About” and currently being shown at London’s Gazelli Art House’s Window Project, highlights the corruption of globalisation, along with the increasingly dangerous methods of food production.

The images look sugary sweet at first, I may have even gotten hungry, but at closer inspection, they are monster-like and not something you’d want to bump into in a dark alley or find hiding under your bed.

Here’s how the press release describes the series:

James Ostrer’s photographs of sugar adorned subjects allude to the history of primitive art, synthetic dietary sugar intake, and an irreverent twist on the absurd in which societal practices of ingestion oscillate into a nightmarish world of abject effrontery and nutritional disillusionment.

Digest that.

Are You Fearless?

Wednesday, August 6, 2014

YouTube Preview Image

From spiders to heights, to singing in public, no fear is too big or too small to be included in the Fearless Challenge, a new online fundraiser for the Canadian Cancer Society.

The Fearless Challenge, an integrated campaign centred on a website at FearlessChallenge.com, created by advertising agency Lowe Roche, is daring anyone and everyone to confront their fears to help those living with cancer do the same. It’s an exciting new signature fundraiser from the Canadian Cancer Society, and a different way for the charity to frame the narrative around cancer.

The goal of the Fearless Challenge is to change perceptions around cancer by creating hope through fundraising that the disease will become more manageable in the future.

By pledging to confront their own fears, no matter how big or small, for a dollar amount they decide, Canadians can raise funds to help people living with cancer do the same. It’s a strategically pivotal and differentiating initiative that goes beyond the typical event-type effort to open up a new approach to fundraising.

Anomaly has created this great short film for Johnny Walker Blue Label starring Jude Law and Giancarlo Giannini.

“The Gentleman’s Wager”, directed by RSA’s Jake Scott, is a delightful 6 mins with a some great dance moves. Fun stuff. Watch it.

Here’s a quote form Jude Law on the film – scooped from Adweek.

“The film is about improvement and progress, and this is something I try to do in my work and my everyday life,” says Law. “I had to learn new skills shooting this film that combined with the places we visited and shot in, alongside working with Jake and with Giancarlo, made it a truly rare experience.”

Shout out to Anomaly’s Dave Douglass who was one of the writers on the short film.

Ummm Ice Cream

Tuesday, July 29, 2014


There’s nothing better than a cool ice cream cone on a hot summer day. Ok, a cold drink is pretty darn good too, or a dip in a lake…I digress.

Take a moment to relax and watch some ice cream melting. It’s a lot more engaging than watching paint dry. I promise.

Creamlapse, created by Mateo Cabeza, is a film made up of over 3500 photos of ice cream. Yum.

I miss vinyl. I like the little bit of nostalgia in this spot to promote Bombay Bicycle Club’s new album, So Long, See You Tomorrow.

The clip expands on the band’s phenakistoscope inspired artwork by taking the concept and creating it in-camera, with no post except edit and grade. It’s directed by James Henry of Love Commercial.

Found via Creative Review’s Best of Feed.
