ANDY AWARDS JURY HIJACKED IN SYDNEY

 AMBIENT   AUSTRALIA    March 01, 2008 01:02 (Edited: February 29, 2008 14:02)
https://www.bestadsontv.com/news/http://www.bestadsontv.com/files/thumbnails/2008/Feb/12154_JWT_Sydney_Hijacks_the_Andy_Award___s_Jury_1.jpg
What started as an inspirational speech from one of JWT’s leading planners quickly became an issue of security as the Andy Award Judges, currently in Sydney, were verbally abused by an unknown terrorist organisation. Of course, it was a bit of fun during Friday's breakfast for the Andy's judges, which was sponsored by JWT Sydney.

 GUEST JUDGE /BEST AD OF THE WEEK   USA    February 28, 2008 09:50 (Edited: February 27, 2008 22:50)
https://www.bestadsontv.com/news/upload/RogerCamp.jpgRoger Camp joined Riney as Chief Creative Officer in January of 2007, overseeing all creative for renowned brands including U.S. Cellular, Hungry Man, Vlasic, Blue Cross and Blue Shield (Wellpoint) and AAA. Just prior to taking the creative helm at Riney, Camp was Creative Director at Fallon where he developed acclaimed work for Holiday Inn brand and led the agency's latest foray into branded content with the Brawny Academy reality show. Previously, Camp was Creative Director at Wieden and Kennedy overseeing the agency's Coca Cola business which included Diet Coke and Powerade, earning top honors in its category at the EFFIES and becoming a provocative case study for the agency. Camp also served as Creative Director on the Miller Brewing business including Miller High Life, and Nike Lab and ACG division of Nike, Electronic Arts, Amazon.com and others. Before Wieden and Kennedy, Camp was Principal and Creative Director of CampArbues in San Francisco, a shop he founded with former client Eileen Arbues. Clients included E! Entertainment Network, Gordon Biersch Brewing and Critical Path. Some of Camp's other award-winning work includes the launch of Adidas and Cnet while at Leagas Delaney, The Discovery Channel for Publicis & Hal Riney, as well as Cherry Coke, Little Caesars, Staples and the highly acclaimed work for Fox Sports and Outpost.com while at Cliff Freeman and Partners. Camp's work has been regarded as some of the best of the last decade. Along with winning every major creative award many times over, including Best of Show at the Clios for an unprecedented two consecutive years, Camp has had the honor of winning more British D&AD awards than any American Art Director in the show's 45 year history. He has also been named top art director in the country by Boards magazine and been featured on Fox and VH1's Greatest Commercials of All Time.


BEST TV
My favorite TV ad this week is the AXEquake spot. Dramatic, nicely done. Now it comes with the history of having a few wonderful years of great ads to precede it, so I thoroughly understand what the brand stands for, but this execution continues to up the game. Nicely done.
Another spot worth mentioning is the Pictures of Youroad safety spots that was quite powerful. Granted we've seen this style before where real photos and family members are used to make the emotional point, but what makes this ad thought provoking is that it forced me to reconsider those god awful speed cameras. Prior to seeing the spot, I've only thought about speed cameras as a nuisance. A way for police to easily, and remotely, take my money and while that may still be true, at least the ad made realize that maybe they are serving a role beyond the financial.

BEST PRINT
The print this week was ok, not great. In my opinion the one standout was the McDonald'sextra large coffee. The product is simple. The ad is simple. Great. Got it. Done and done.

BEST OUTDOOR
My favorite outdoor of the bunch was the work done for the Ford Galaxy'sairbag system. Seems like one of those "of course!" ideas which usually means its pretty fantastic. Love it.

BEST INTERACTIVE
My favorite of the interactive work this week is for Versus Cancer CharityCool way to make the concert feel bigger than just a charity concert. Interesting to see the names of all the people who are in attendance and it makes being a part of it something a bit more special.
PS: I wanted to like the Wonderbrasite, not solely because I'm a guy, but because they have a history of doing really interesting things, but the link wasn't working at all. I thought it might have been part of the joke. Oh wait, WAS that the joke?! Funny.

Telstra commissioned BWM Sydney to create a new brand campaign for their ever-increasing business market. Shot by feature film director and The Tropicanna Short Film Festival creator John Polson, the commercial (Polson’s first) is a day-in-the-life-of story about a guy and his family set to the music of Harry Nilsson’s “Everybody’s Talkin”. “In order to make the song more relevant to the idea, we decided to re-write the lyrics”, says writer Dean Hamilton. “A task that proved to be one of the hardest things I’ve ever had to do”, he continues. “Because the last thing we wanted was to destroy this classic tune from Midnight Cowboy. Thanks to the incredible storytelling from John Polson and an unbelievable soundtrack from Nylon Studios, let’s hope Harry’s not turning in his grave." The commercial launched at the 2008 Tropfest to a live audience of around 200,000 people throughout the country.
