2010 Saatchi & Saatchi New Director’s Showcase

2010 Saatchi & Saatchi New Director's Showcase

Every year one of my favourite things to attend in Cannes is the Saatchi & Saatchi New Director’s Showcase. This year’s showcase was amazing, but first off, I have to discuss the opening. Via the use of of hologram technology, a deceased Paul Arden was resurrected and joined Saatchi & Saatchi’s creative director for global culture Richard Myers to open the show. I found it a bit odd & creepy (vid here).

Anyway, back to the showcase. At last year’s showcase I was familiar with most of the work – I had seen most of it before the screening. But this year I was pleasantly surprised by a showcase full of a lot work I had not seen – so refreshing. I was with Eliza Williams from Creative Review and she agreed that many were new to her as well. Here’s a few that I really enjoyed.

Joe Penna’s (Rhett & Link Inc) 222 T-Shirts

NEZ’s (Colonel Blimp) film for Halston

Loved Saman Keshavarz’s (Might8) music video for Cinnamon Chasers

Drunk History - hilarious idea by Jeremy Konner (Partizan)

The audience fav & something I had seen before was Patrick Jean’s (onemorepro) Pixels

Amazing art direction and detail in David Freymond’s (L’Ogre) video for Hold Your Horses – 70 Million

and two more I had seen & absolutely love – David Wilson’s (Blink) We Got Time and AB/CD/CD’s (Frenzy) Lilly Allen Fuck You vid.

Yep. A lot of great stuff. All the films are on Saatchi’s YouTube Chanel.

Psyop turned 10

I just spent the past two days in a very hot and humid NYC with Psyop celebrating their 10th anniversary.

Hair Conditioner

Beautiful VFX in the directorial debut by Jonathan Gurvit. Took me a second to figure it out though – I’m blonde & have moments sometimes. Speaking of which, maybe the bald guy should have gone for a blonde car. We do have more fun. Thanks for sending it my way Jonathan.

Help Someone With ALS

Help Someone With ALS

The ALS Society of Canada has launched their first interactive campaign to assist in raising much needed funds during ALS Awareness Month (June). Lowe Roche, Toronto created the campaign, they were also behind the award-winning “Head and Shoulders” broadcast spot for ALS a couple of years back. The three interactive online banners, “Shave”, “Shirt” and “Hair”, allow a person to help somebody with ALS perform simple, everyday tasks such as dressing, shaving or combing their hair – things people with ALS lose the ability to do on their own. The banners are appearing on The Globe and Mail‘s website and MochaSofa for the month of June. They are also hosted on the microsite HelpSomeoneWithALS.ca where people can also make donations. Full credits are here.
