To tie in with this year's Rugby World Cup, adidas and 180 Amsterdam take the All Blacks back to their grass roots in a heroic TV campaign called 'Of This Earth'. The central idea of the campaign was to create a symbolic patchwork field using a piece of turf from the hometown of each and every All Black past and present.
"Speaking as one of the nine Kiwis in this agency, it's very emotional for us to create a piece of work for our home country," says Andy Fackrell, Executive Creative Director, 180 Amsterdam "There's a certain sense of pride with how many All Blacks come out of your hometown: in my case Wainuiomata. It was very special to include Jonah Lomu in the film, and Sir Brian Lochore who tells the story."

PARTIZAN DIRECTOR BEHIND 'BEST UFO HOAX EVER'

 LATEST NEWS   UK    August 30, 2007 14:33 (Edited: August 30, 2007 04:33)

Partizan, London director Numero 6 has taken the internet by storm with a series of film clips posted on YouTube that appear to show alien spacecraft flying across the skies of Haiti, the Dominican Republic and Brooklyn.
Posted under a pseudonym on August 9th, the videos were quickly picked up by the ravenously curious online UFO crowd. Within two weeks they have clocked up well over three million hits.
Debate raged online as to whether or not the clips were genuine. Some sceptics decided the footage was so slick it must be viral marketing for various forthcoming films or video games. The clips appeared on CNN and Fox News, with a presenter on Fox News proclaiming "It looks real and I think this is proof positive that there are other life forms out there and they are coming after us!"
Then last week the LA Times stepped in to investigate the story, and were the only press to track down the true source of the clips, David Nicolas, also known as Partizanâs Numero 6.
"With all the cries of fraud and opportunism, even the most steadfast doubters couldn't find anything in the footage that was obviously bogus," wrote LA Times journalist David Sarno. "More than a few observers in either camp called them 'the best UFO videos ever'. "
Numero 6 is known for its work for Coca-Cola, Ikea and the Super Furry Animals, among other clients. David made the UFO films as research for his next project, a feature film based on a true story about the biggest UFO hoax in American history. The film is still in pre-production and is to be produced by Partizan Films.

In 2007, TDK will be launching a new range of speakers, headphones and high definition stereo systems. So our task was simple. Position TDK as a major player in the sound system category. The idea? If you’re not listening to TDK equipment, the sound quality isn’t as good as it should be. Therefore, you’re not getting true or original sound. And what better way to demonstrate this than by using celebrity look-a-likes who impersonate famous musicians. These people look and sound similar, but are clearly not the original.

“The All Blacks’ Haka has often been misunderstood and for this year’s World Cup we felt it was time to explain its true meaning,” says Sean Thompson, Creative Director 180 Amsterdam, “The Haka, performed at the start of every game, is a ritualistic performance, which summons up the spirits of the ancestors to help the team climb step by step to the sun and glory. Summing up the Impossible is Nothing campaign, the film delves deeply into the Maori traditions using genuine Maori artists to help the team tell their story. We hope that by explaining its true meaning, other nations will show the Haka the respect it deserves.”
