    Feedbackr - an iPhone app for Creative Directors to leave feedback on the go with their voice

    "These days, we're expected to comment on work, 24/7" - well, only if you work at an agency that is useless at scheduling which is pretty much all of them. This isn't rocket science, even people who are curing cancer all day clock off at night and go spend time with their families. Can we make an app for "don't waste time on bullshit" and "For gods sake stop scheduling creative meeting at 6:30 PM on a Friday", because I suspect all of the adworld needs it.

    Frooti Juicy Mango Surprise Project: Giant Mangos attack!

    So, you get a pretty straight forward brief that states: "inform people that there is lots of real mango in product", and you could do all sorts of samplings, tastings mango give-aways with this... Yeah, pretty dull.

    Or you could scare the bejesus out of people by chasing them downhill with giant mangos!. Yes, aim that 8-foot mango down the slope onto the oncoming pedestrians. Do it! And why not drop enormous mangos from trees narrowly missing their heads? Yes! Lets do that too. A lot more fun, isn't it? Plus all those near heart-attack victims will take the drink you offer and think it's the best thing ever now. Win win!

    Laura Ashley - Sasha / spec - (2010) (UK)

    The concept behind the acclaimed spec spot Sasha was a daring one: capture in less than two minutes the imaginative and mischievous life of one joyful little girl. LA-based jumP Editor Nick Lofting sifted through several hours of footage to gather a few key moments, expressions, bits of dialogue, and impishness, transforming what could have been a short sketch into a deep, gentle narrative that leaves viewers feeling both connected with Sasha and inspired to imagine the rest of her life.

    So, how does one go about illustrating the inner life of an unusually creative child? Working with @radical.media Director Brett Froomer - whose notable career is highlighted by memorable commercial campaigns for brands such as Citgo, US Army, Kodak, Prudential and PDFA as well as five successful personal studies, Lofting pored over hours of play and interviews with Sasha, her parents, and her two sisters.
