Best Job in the World Controversy

Best Job in the World Controversy

This great ad has been floating around for a few weeks now, but the controversy around it has just been brought to my attention. Many people have applied, but many were also rejected to a glitch in the site’s programming. Submissions have to be 60 seconds or less. The ones that got rejected were right on the 60 second marker and Queensland Tourism’s technical system tacked on one or two seconds on the end automatically rejecting them. There are hundreds if not thousands of people being rejected because of it. Check out the site here. Agency is CumminsNitro Brisbane. Thanks to JN for the scoop.

Billboard made of scratch & wins

Billboard made of scratch & wins

Wow, two posts featuring work from Australia in one day (that’s a first). For the Outdoor Media Association’s inaugural Australian Outdoor Awards, this billboard, on a Sydney highway, depicts the award show’s logo made from 10,000 $1 lotto scratch cards–meaning the best outdoor of the year honoree can win much more than $10,000 if he or she is lucky (does that also mean it’s a gamble to enter? – joke). The billboard is being guarded 24 hours per day. Agency is The Glue Society. The full story, with a video, is posted here. Scooped from Creativity.

Thank you Adam Massey

Thank you Adam Massey

My friends over at Holiday Films have just signed Adam Massey for Canadian representation. He just completed a spot for Trident (the first spot on his reel) that cracks my guy up every time he sees it. Nice VFX on those lips. My favourite spot on his reel is Draggus Posterioralis for Altoids which was shortlisted in Cannes last year.

Go to hell with Psyop

The latest from Psyop is this dark journey into Dante’s Inferno for EA Games. Dante’s Inferno, headed-up by Psyop Creative Director and Partner Eben Mears, is almost two minutes long and Psyop says it’s one of their most dense CG projects to date. Full credits, a selection of stills and more background on the spot and its production are posted here.

Suicidal Creme Eggs

Suicidal Creme Eggs

To me Easter seems like a long time away, but Cadbury started promoting their yummy creme eggs last week in this amazing Release the Goo campaign. Check out the ads on the site (I didn’t have time to play the game). Maybe I’m demented, but there is something about suicidal creme eggs that really appeals to me. The blender one is my favourite because of its unexpected ending. Agency is Saatchi & Saatchi New York. Must go get one of those yummy eggs (I like them frozen).

Neave

I’ve been meaning to post a link to this site by interactive designer Paul Neave since Friday. I adore the television section so much that I spent at least ten minutes on it (I managed to get through all the content and back to the beginning). Check it out. Found via Motionographer.
