Herman Vaske interviews Tim Mellors

It's only advertising. Nobody gets killed. The old saying about boxing champions "They never come back" does not apply to advertising. At the beginning of the seventies, Tim Mellors was the beloved wunderkind of British advertising. Then Mellors went into directing and failed. After an attempt to set up his own consultancy, which went bankrupt, Mellors ended up in the world of alcohol and drugs. Seven years back, Charles Saatchi and Jeremy Sinclair got the prodigal son back into their office.

An intellectual yet festive bunch, the three friends threw their first Cannes party four years ago for Dutch music maker Hans Brouwer of Massive Music and Amsterdam/London/Berlin's Condor Post Production and have made an annual tradition of it.


'How was Cannes?' - Dabitch reports from the south of France

In the middle of June ad people gather in Cannes from all over the planet. They go to see ads from all over the world, poster, print, TV and new media, all day every day of the week. They go to party all night every night of the week. They go to spend heavily from their expense accounts while networking.


Swedes bring home the gold. And so does Nike in the Cyberlions.

In Cannes it seems the Swedes are continuing to take over the world in their second Viking raid era. Course, this is only advertising we are talking about, and hopefully no villagers will get pillaged, but there must be something in the knäckerbröd over there to bring home this much gold per capita.


Sony's phony audience.

As Clay pointed out earlier, film studio's can get really creative when trying to get good quotes about their movies by inventing their own film critics.
