Insight: There are situations where you shouldn't laugh. If you laugh there, something must be really funny. Like say, for example, when you just fired half the office you bastard boss from hell. I'm getting Sedelmaier meets Roy Anderson vibes in the execution here, and that retro works for me.
File under delightfully macabre. Finnish Agency 358 Helsinki created this poster for "Hush," along with a teaser: bloody hammers placed around Helsinki movie theaters.
My question is, why bother with the poster? You had me at bloody hammers.
Update: Agency 358 wasn't behind the poster, only the activation elements. It was in fact Scanbox Entertainment who did the poster.
Warlocks, wizards and zombies let their freak flags fly in a new campaign for GameStop, directed by STORY’s Jeff France for The Richards Group. Three new spots portray the game retailer’s current storewide promotion Gamestock 2012 as a Summer of Game Love festival.
A heavily armed warrior trying to slip through a festival security checkpoint. This is a different kind of festival.
Warlocks, wizards and zombies let their freak flags fly in a new campaign for GameStop, directed by STORY’s Jeff France for The Richards Group. Three new spots portray the game retailer’s current storewide promotion Gamestock 2012 as a Summer of Game Love festival. In the hero spot, Going to Gamestock, familiar game character types hit the road, with some piling into a rickety VW van painted in psychedelic colors, while others ride buses or hitchhike in order to take part in the “six week festival of deals and prizes.”
Two other spots feature a heavily armed warrior trying to slip through a festival security checkpoint, and a man who reacts loudly to an unpleasant smell in a bathroom, only to discover the source of the odor is a surly zombie.
Matt Mahurin directed "Hell Broke Luce" from the album "Bad As Me" with a hearty dose of visual surrealism. Tom Waits wrote the song about Lance Corporal Jeff Lucey, one of the people in the Frontline documentary called "This Soldiers heart". Jeff Lucey suffered from PTSD and committed suicide in his home.

95.5FM is the biggest radio stations in Israel that focuses on news and current events.
in order to promote the station we came up with a campaign which presents a new insight that looks at the daily real world as a soap-opera and lures the audience to tune in and escape from their everyday lives. We took 3 pressing issues from the current news and presented them as soap opera ads
Trivia: GSP leverages some of the most iconic elements of the franchise in this spot, from the unmistakable “power-up” noise to sparkling rotating coins, all of which had to be quality checked by the Nintendo team in Japan to ensure game accuracy and consistent aesthetics.
“They told me not to smoke drugs, but I never listened…” sings My Morning Jacket frontman Jim James, and the lyric couldn’t be a more fitting introduction to James Frost’s wild, psychedelic trip of a video for “Outta My System”.
Frost has become renowned for his technology-infused storytelling: “House of Cards” for Radiohead used real-time 3D recording in lieu of cameras; a DieHard Batteries spot for Y&R saw New Wave icon Gary Numan literally playing “Cars” on cars that were synched to a synthesizer; and Frost’s new prodco, Honey Badger, combines directors and experiential teams.
Meet the super humans. Channel 4 covers the Paralympics, and announce it by blowing us away as Channel 4's own Paralympic blogger called it. Here's a bit from the director, Tom Tagholm, on what they wanted to do.
“As for the scenes in the middle with the explosion and car crash and the mother in the hospital – we thought long and hard about how to include them because one thing that we weren’t interested at all in doing was an advert which said ‘Isn’t it great that these guys have made it to the start line?’ That just didn’t interest me and I don’t think it interested the channel.
The 25th Anniversary of Shark Week kicks off Sunday, August 12, 2012 at 9PM e/p on Discovery - any closer and you'd be bait.

It's funny to me how all those fashion details and things that signalled "mainstream bore" back when I was a kid in the 80s are now the height of cool (?) in new videos. Also, get off my lawn, I just mowed it.
It's that time of year again, our guilty pleasure, the all out gawking at the Gathering of the Juggalos infomercial. It was fun in 2009 when it was like a hybrid mix of a wresting infomercial & a country fair infomercial, in 2010 its was more like a chill drive-by and in 2012 it's an all out zombie apocalypse... of course it is! The Gathering of the Juggalos Infomercial never disappoints.
"I'm Happy" is a short film by (and starring) Michael Neithardt, who is also Executive Producer, New Business at Psyop. It recently had its world premiere at Tropfest NY in Bryant Park.
Shot in Barcelona, Southern Spain, Southern France and Long Island, NY, the film is the story of a man's premature heart attack forcing him to come to terms with the regrets of his life. It explores the conversation in his mind during these his final moments. One part tone-poem, one part dream-scape, the man journeys through an exploration within his own mind and ultimately has to acknowledge the lies he has been telling himself all along.
Now you can put a Heisman legend on any team you want. But when that team is Georgia and that legend is Tim Tebow, well that's just wrong. Right?
How far would you go for the Heisman? Mike the Tiger puts RG3 on LSU, only to find out Les Miles isn't so pumped about it.
Here's the latest from San Francisco-based Heat for NCAA Football 13.
The campaign is directed by Moxie Pictures' Martin Granger and edited by Arcade Edit's Greg Scruton.
Now you can put a Heisman legend on any team you want. Just don't be surprised when your Buckeye dad doesn't like seeing a Michigan alum on his team. NCAA Football 13.
Director Jeff Low from biscuit filmworks UK shot this advert for Sony PlayStation Move. A videogame-playing preteen is transformed into a rat who unleashes the power of the "magic wand" controller that accompanies the new game "Sorcery." I wish I could turn some of my co-workers into a chunk of cheese.
Director Matt Lambert explains:
Caspa feat. Keith Flint - 'WAR', follows more of the structure of a short film than traditional music video. It follows the lives of a group of friends who end up living on the outskirts of the city following the collapse of society. It chronicles their initial hedonistic response, to one of militance and anger after the death of one of their own. This calls them to return to the city and fight for survival and vengeance against an unknown threat.
