Carrington College - "Carrington College Squirrel" - (2012) :30 (USA)

Award-winning animation and visual effects studio Hinge Digital recently teamed up with BVK to create a clever series of advertisements for Carrington College.

Comedic outtakes from the project are also available to view online here: http://hingedigital.com/work/#carrington.

For Those Lost, Just Not Forgotten (2012)

For Those Lost, Just Not Forgotten (2012)

Director Cole Webley just completed this beautiful, powerful and moving passion project, a short film titled "For Those Lost, Just Not Forgotten".

"The film is a visual expression of the angst of being lost - emotionally," explains Webley. "It represents something we all go through, and something that is integral to the human experience. We certainly don't like it, but we almost can't avoid feeling this way at some time or another."

The imagery of the film is set to a poem written by Chateau Bezerra, an Art Director at AKQA, whom Webley went to university with and where the two collaborated on some of the director's first spec work.

the "Fuck-it list"

One week after the Cannes Lions Festival, DDB Toronto's Daniel Bonder will be 29.
Too long in the tooth for a slot at the prestigious Young Lions Academy.

So to celebrate this rite of passage, he does what any "young" creative would do in their so-called last week of youth. He creates "The Fuck-It List,” which is also his submission to enter the 2012 Academy.

Along the way we see Bonder do a dine and dash, have sex in public, get drunk in public, fart in public, get a face tattoo and more.

It's nicely shot thanks to the DDB Toronto folks. We just wish the examples on The Fuck-It list were more, well, creative. A quick poll around here shows most of us crossed off 95% of that list before we were 18. Maybe he's a late bloomer.

Hyundai Veloster -  Death (fooled) - (2011) :30 (The Netherlands)

The board of directors at Hyundai did not approve this ad, as they deemed it "too shocking for our brand", but it's still quite a funny and effective idea showing off the three-door car.

Dirt Devil - The Exorcist - (2011)

The mumbled prayers. The ticking clock. The grimy dark setting. The screams from the bedroom. It's all so spot on, the only thing that could make this any better was if it ran only on Halloween. Dirt devil, get on that please.

 

DYCCA 2011 - Hitler Frisbee - Danish Frisbee Sport Union

This was entered as a response to the brief in the Danish Young Creative Circle Awards 2011. It did not win, but there's reports that the judging room was roaring with laughter for a good ten minutes before someone wised up and said "but seriously, lets pick a winner now...."
