“Lürzer’s Archive International Student of the Year 2009”

Announcing the “Lürzer’s Archive Student of the Year 2009”

For the fifth year in succession, the award for this year’s best student work has now been presented. Once again, Miami Ad School wins the palm.

“The Kodak ad feels fresh and, for a student campaign, it’s very nicely executed. (…)

Commercials: 
 

Smart car - Suicide/ Lowest Co2 Emission -(2009)

Smart car - Suicide/ Lowest Co2 Emission -(2009)

This is not an ad, it's a spec job done by Team 3 at the Rutger Hauer Film Factory. This is a response to a brief that was handed out in the morning, the concept was written up and shot in just one day.

 

Scorpion Helmets - "Sweat" - 2009 :45 (USA)

Scorpion Helmets - "Sweat" - 2009 :45 (USA)

This is a spec commercial created for my director's reel and was eventually used by the client Scorpion.
Roger Feldman from Marshall Advertising wrote the spot as a beach setting that I eventually adapted to a '50s gas station scene.

 

AIDS / HIV info - The Bear (2009) :30

AIDS / HIV info - The Bear (2009) :30

Pro-bono ad shows what people can't see, won't scare them as a man dressed as a bear randomly gets hugged on the street. Once he takes his bear-head off though, he doesn't look so huggable and cute anymore.

Getting a lot of spec work submission lately - KEWL!

 

Pop Pop Music - Balloons

Pop Pop Music - Balloons

Just to show off some lovely editing and sound creativity, Pop Music cover by the sound of popping balloons. Nice one.

Created by rossangeles.net, Directed,shot and edited by Ross Harris. Featuring Maya Harris as the balloonatic.

 

PSP - Baby / Go Play Outside - SPEC work (2009) :30 (USA)

PSP - Baby / Go Play Outside - SPEC work (2009) :30 (USA)

Oh no you don't, the opening scene here with baby crawling toward a stove complete with simmering pots in the kitchen makes hair I didn't even know I had stand on end.

ExHusband
 

Excedrin - ExHusband - spec print, Canada

Excederin gets rid of really really big headaches.

Jeremy Salzm at ideas4cheap did pretty much everything in this one-off. Except yaknow, get the actual client to pay him for it. The concept behind ideas4cheap seems to be a recycled adstore (remember them in the nineties?) but with less no money.

Commercials: 
 

Sprite - Blow job - (SPEC WORK) - (2009) :30 (USA)

Sprite - Blow job - (SPEC WORK) - (2009) :30 (USA)

Not a German ad. Not a banned commercial. Instead this is simply spec work directed by Max Isaacson at Greencard Pictures. See also this post: Porn-like Sprite "banned" blow-job ad made by Brooklyn hipsters Greencard Pictures.

 

1-900-NERD-GIRL (2009) :45 (USA)

1-900-NERD-GIRL (2009) :45 (USA)

I have not watched the Lord of the Rings film even once, although I have seen the cartoon version of J.R.R. Tolkien's, The Hobbit many times in my younger days, and I still like it. I have watched only three of the episodes in the Star Wars saga, the first one being the film released in 1977. Maybe I like board games just because I like to roll dice. I am not a nerd.

I just found them likable, that's all. They are women, I'm a man, I found them attractive. It has nothing to do with what they were doing, the sexy voice, the costumes, the elf ears.... I am not a nerd. I will not call the number.

Besides, the number is not a real number, right? Right? Maybe, I should call just to make sure.
