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.

Spinning Images

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.

Paid for in Meat

Tuesday, July 22, 2014

YouTube Preview Image

Montana’s has releases the  world’s first ad campaign paid for in meat.

To prove that Montana’s Best of BBQ Sampler event is irresistible, the Montana’s team tried to shoot an entire ad campaign by bartering with BBQ ribs, sausages, chicken, brisket, and shrimp. And it worked.

Created by Vancouver-based ad agency One Twenty Three West, Montana’s surprised real businesses in Toronto by simply walking in and offering a plate of BBQ meat in exchange for goods and services.

Over two days of bartering and shooting, they received a psychic reading, an MMA lesson, a manicure, a yoga lesson, men’s skin care products, some new shoes, a haircut, a bouquet of flowers, an area rug, a massage (view below) and even a real tattoo.

But the bartering didn’t end there. The entire production crew and the advertising agency agreed to take part of their payment in BBQ.
