BBH London: Audi ‘Going Home’

Agency: BBH London
Client: Audi
Date: November 2016
‘Going Home’, created by BBH, carries the tagline ‘Audi Sport. Born on the track, built for the road.’  It depicts Audi RS models, including the new TT RS Coupé and R8 Spyder, making an epic journey to the Circuit des 24 Heures du Mans, where so much of the knowledge and expertise behind these spectacular high performance models has been gained during the development of generations of thoroughbred Audi racing cars.
The film also features the Audi RS 6, RS 7, RS Q3 and the Le Mans winning R18. The cars take to the circuit in formation, accompanied by an acoustic rendition of the Simon and Garfunkel classic, ‘Homeward Bound’.  The track was produced by David Kosten, the Mercury Prize nominated producer, and performed by up and coming artist, Gina Kushka.
The ad is a tribute to a period of the Le Mans race, which will go down in history as the Audi Era. Between 1999 and 2016, the German manufacturer finished on the podium 18 times in 18 starts and won the race on 13 occasions – a period of unprecedented success.

Livity: Girlguiding ‘#ForTheGirl’

Agency: Livity
Client: Girlguiding
Date: November 2016
Girlguiding, the UK’s leading charity for girls and young women, has today launched a ground-breaking marketing campaign – #ForTheGirl – to challenge outdated perceptions and encourage people to think twice about the charity.
The campaign directly targets women aged 25-34, both as strong role models for the charity’s young members, and as a key demographic both for future volunteers and parents of girls who might join the charity.
The film shows a series of apparently positive scenarios for girls – but when the girls turn to camera or speak to each other, the voices that we hear are not their own. Instead we hear the voices of familiar media personalities offering a negative or sexist commentary on an aspect of female identity and their role in society.

: Elite Cow Chocolate ‘Let’s make life here sweeter’

Client: Elite Cow Chocolate

News headlines in Israel tend to be somewhat negative.
Focusing on the bad news that happens here and at other times showcasing the rude, boisterous and sometimes shameful misbehaviour of Israelis. That’s why, in an effort to spread goodness and celebrate a brand that makes life in Israel that much sweeter,
the country’s leading chocolate brand – Elite Cow Chocolate – created a video stop-motion campaign starring plasticine figures celebrating Israelis who do good. The figure’s faces were inspired by the chocolate bar’s unique shape with its larger cube in the middle.

Space: Glenfiddich ‘Experimental Series’

Agency: Space
Client: Glenfiddich
Date: November 2016

The 60-second TV ad, developed by creative agency Space, aims to attract a new generation of whisky drinkers around the world. The film will support one of the first expressions in the range, the Glenfiddich IPA Experiment, the world’s first single malt whisky finished in India Pale Ale (IPA) casks.

The creative concept behind the film, “The Experimental Series”, explores the extremes of human intellect through a series of scenarios including the first sparks of love, the carelessness with which we sometimes treat the planet, and the positivity that results from fostering our curious nature.

These vignettes eventually focus in on mastery and creativity, reflecting the guiding principle behind the new products: only by mastering our art do we earn the right to truly experiment. The film’s stark imagery, bold visual style and intense rhythmic soundtrack further demonstrate how Glenfiddich is re-writing the whisky rulebook with this new range.

LIDA: IKEA ‘Ikea Handcrafted’

Agency: LIDA
Client: IKEA
Date: November 2016
Tasked with helping IKEA build a stronger relationship with members of the IKEA FAMILY, the campaign, created by LIDA, sees a cross-stitched ‘email’ sent in the post to a targeted group of the member base.
As IKEA FAMILY’s most valuable members, LIDA wanted to create something extra special for them in exchange for their email address. Something that would show they are valued and appreciated customers, but also act as a reminder that IKEA aren’t like other retailers – and neither are their communications.  So LIDA had to think outside the box in order to get IKEA FAMILY emails to the inbox of these members and came up with the first cross stitched email.
 The tactile cross stitched DM is a unique and memorable way to communicate an opt-in message. It featured a unique URL prompting recipients to go online, update their details and receive a £5 coupon to use in-store.

Frame: CalMac Ferries ‘Your West Coast’

Agency: Frame
Client: CalMac Ferries
Date: November 2016
‘Your West Coast’ is a film about the Western Isles of Scotland and coming home, incorporating a specially created song by Scottish band Skipinnish: “Bring us Home on the Sea.”
This campaign was inspired by the incredible beauty and charm of the Scottish west coast islands and nearby mainland.
Most people are aware of CalMac as one of Scotland’s most iconic brands with over 160 years’ history.  Frame, in collaboration with Double Take, brought those warm, nostalgic and romantic associations with the brand to life by creating a stirringly emotional and proudly Scottish film steeped in heritage.
Each scene incorporates archive footage of Island life, projected “live” onto landmarks and landscapes all over the Western Isles of Scotland, with every effect captured on camera, and not created in the studio! This establishes emotive connections for Scottish tourists, encouraging them to visit the islands, with CalMac undeniably being part of the magic of those islands.

Fred & Farid Paris: The Noé Association ‘The Less Visible’

Agency: Fred & Farid Paris
Client: The Noé Association
Date: November 2016
The Noé Association launched with Fred & Farid Paris an awareness campaign to highlight the threats to ordinary biodiversity and the vital role of the multitude of unknown species around us. The decline of emblematic animals (tigers, giant pandas, whales, bears, rhinos, etc.) elicits a strong emotional response from the general public, unlike the decline of more “common” species. Ignored and forgotten because of their small size and their banal appearance, their fate leaves us indifferent. One actually hardly realizes that they are disappearing.
With a campaign slogan, “The Most Exposed Are Not Always The Most Visible” Noé is hoping that attention to extraordinary biodiversity does not make us forget the threats to ordinary biodiversity. Basing itself on five examples that concern our daily life, Noé wants to mobilize public opinion in order to halt the decline of ordinary biodiversity.
