Ok GO - End Love

In my pre-Cannes and Cannes madness I missed the launch of Ok GO’s latest amazing vid for End Love. Love it. Scooped from Motionographer. These lads never disappoint.

What’s Killing You?

Posted June 28, 2010

What's Killing You?

Swedish pop star Robyn (love her) has launched the first ever interactive, 3D video with Twitter integration for her song Don’t Fucking Tell Me What to Do. It’s also my post-Cannes theme song (it opens with “my drinking is killing me”).

The first portion of the video features a visualization of Robyn’s lyrics in 3D and the remainder of the video is created by users themselves who tweet what is killing them using the Twitter hash tag, #killingme. These tweets are themselves visualized and credited to the user. The video has the potential to become the infinite video as users can continue to add on to the endless stream of #killingme comments. The concept was originally developed by Mary Fagot, Creative Director for Blip Boutique and the web development team at Stopp Web in Stockholm, lead by Project Manager & Creative Thomas Bjork.

Goodby & Stiller

Posted June 25, 2010

Goodby & Stiller

I’ve been having a little too much fun in Cannes, yes that is possible, hence the lack of posts. I arrived on Monday night and am currently operating on very little sleep & I think my voice is about to go. Good times. Here is a long over due post about the Jeff Goodby & Ben Stiller – yes, the actor – seminar I went to on Tuesday. First off the seminar room was full, so I had to watch it via live video feed in another room – not a big deal. The seminar was sponsored by Yahoo! and the topic was “Laugh, Connect and Debate with Jeff Goodby and Ben Stiller”. There was a lot of laughing, but not a lot of substance. Just witty banter for 45 mins – well, I actually left early, after 35 mins, do to the lack of substance. Too bad as I am a big fan of both Stiller & Goodby.

I'm on a Boat

Thank you to Charlie from Apollo Studios for posing the best question ever – “We are going on a yacht. Do you want to come?” Hell ya! On Wednesday I had the best day ever thanks to Alexander & Ralf from Tempomedia, who while in Cannes stay on a yacht not in a hotel. Amazing, amazing day. Thankyouthankyouthankyouthankyou.

Massive Wednesday

Thanks to Massive Music for yet another amazing party on Wednesday night. Stellar as always. And so nice to meet many of the Massive crew in person in the 3.14 pool yesterday. If you don’t remember me, I was the girl in the white bikini doing cannon balls.

2010 Saatchi & Saatchi New Director’s Showcase

Posted June 25, 2010

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.

Brian Lee Hughes for SportChek

Brian Lee Hughes for SportChek

Here are four new spots – Soccer, Bike, Golf, Shoes – for Canadian retailer SportChek directed by OPC‘s Brian Lee Hughes via Bos Toronto. Although Soccer is timely, Bike is my fav as it has Brian Lee Hughes’ signature creepiness (sorry BLH, you are creepy). There are four others in the campaign breaking later this summer. Full credits.
