"We shot elements and Katelyn for 3 days on the Phantom HD camera. Clips recorded to a digital mag which were then offloaded for processing. Tumbling was captured at 400fps. Most of the candy elements were shot out of an air compressor at 150 psi and recorded at 1000fps. Bubbles were mostly hand blown. Audio clips of Katelyn were shot on a RED camera using master primes (14 & 32) at 24 fps. MAXINE, the custom built motion control robot captured the paper tree elements and dog/cat figurines. Lighting the elements for the Phantom at 1000fps required nearly 400amps of electricity focussed on a 3X6 space. "

Because we're currently being exposed to almost 24/7 coverage of the global credit crisis DCN, Sydney thought that a parody of a cable news broadcast of the Australian Government's mid-year economic outlook press conference was a compelling and memorable way to launch director David Jagoda's new showreel. Using understated humour this self promotional viral conveys the idea that despite the current tough economic conditions when it comes to TV production thankfully, there are some things you should never have to compromise.
With agencies receiving hundreds of showreels every year the trick was to try and find a way to stand out from the crowd. They thought about using George Clooney, Daniel Craig and Tiger Woods, but to be honest when it came to suaveness and sophistication not to mention being fiscally responsible no one could hold a candle to the Australian Treasurer, Wayne Swan.

Guest judge: Craig Smith, senior creative, BBH New York

 GUEST JUDGE /BEST AD OF THE WEEK   USA    November 26, 2008 16:24 (Edited: April 12, 2011 07:28)
https://www.bestadsontv.com/news/upload/Picture%20204.pngThis week's guest judge is Craig Smith, a senior creative at BBH New York. He comes from a very poor, very large family somewhere in Northern England. Rather than work down pit, or at foundry (a family tradition) he set his sights on Australia as the place to build a future doing creative stuff.
He made a short stopover in HK where he squandered his life savings on Tsing Tao, suckling pig and dormitory accommodations at the YHA. It was here Craig landed his first real job. An Art Director working on ESPN, IBM, Amex, Outward Bound, Nike, BMW, The Economist and Seagram accounts. Seven years later he transferred to Singapore to continue working with many of the same and some new clients such as Guinness and Singapore Airlines. Six years later he was invited to join the EA Games team at W+K Portland. He's now based out of BBH New York where he happily revels in all that Vaseline, Axe, New York City Tourism and Johnnie Walker have to offer.

BEST TV
#1 PICK: JC PENNY - BEWARE OF THE DOG HOUSE
Maybe it's because the dog house is like my second home, the fact that I love doing the laundry or both, but I really enjoyed this short film based on a simple truth. It could easily have turned out average but great dialogue, cast and direction turned this idea into an engaging experience that is worth four minutes of anyone's time.
#2 PICK: ACTIVISION - BIKE HERO
Although I got a little bored part way through this, I love the idea which is nipped from a piece of popular culture. It harnesses the true spirit of viral and is perfect for the target. It looks like it could have been executed by kids which makes it work so much harder. Too many viral films feel like ads online which is uncool, I commend Activision for walking the talk.

BEST PRINT
#1 PICK: ENDANGERED WILDLIFE TRUST
I like the simplicity of this execution which builds curiosity and ends with hard-hitting fact. Uses the medium effectively!
#2 PICK: THE MUSEUM OF CHILDHOOD
Love the art direction and the idea.

BEST OUTDOOR
#1 PICK: ABSOLUT
This made me laugh, perfect timing in a tough economic climate. I miss-read the line first and though it was just a sponsorship poster placement to announce the winning numbers, I thought this was equally perfect timing based on todays tough economic climate, but not as funny!
#2 PICK: PARAQUAD SA
Evironment, timing and message combine and deliver a powerful drink/driving message. (I particularly like the guy pictured right who's so trying so hard to demonstrate the idea).
