Norman Bates have just completed their global campaign for HTC through 171. With 'Turnaround' they shot over 4 days in Shanghai. Utilising some of the city's grittier locations, finding themselves in abandoned warehouses, tower blocks and up high on rooftops. This combined with them shooting with as much natural light as they could (no mean feet in Shanghai's somewhat hazy atmosphere) they managed to gave the film a certain, realistic edge. After Shanghai they set off for the Barrandov Studios, in Prague to shoot 'Subway'. For this the team built a subway carriage from scratch and used the lighting rig to give the impression of motion on the train. With a slightly different feel to 'Turnaround' this film mixes the real with the surreal in a smart blend of casting and content. See how the films turned out here.

See how some of the locations made the cut in this trailer...Time To Meet The Devil!

Adam Berg mixes some impressive in-camera wizardry, explosions and an array of amazingly crafted content, including a former JCB digger turned rampaging T-Rex, a stampede of unruly wildebeest and an invading horde of aliens.

Ivan Zacharias and the team spent a week shooting with football legend Eric Cantona in a small town in the Alsace region of France (some of this time was spent sipping pints and playing pool at the 'Court Of King Eric' - the aptly named local pub). Cantona once said, "When the seagulls follow the trawler, it's because they think sardines will be thrown into the sea.” Now it's time to follow the farmer... See the results in this latest spot for Kronenbourg through Ogilvy & Mather.
Fresh from Stink newcomers Norman Bates, check out this beautifully crafted commercial for Samsonite through Saatchi & Saatchi Brussels.

Directed by Tomek Baginski, this trailer for the new video game Cyberpunk 2077 is an exceptionally impressive piece of 3D Animation, getting over 5 million hits in its first two weeks.

With a heavy influence from his own life experiences, his personal work, based around hip-hop and underground street culture has taken him to some of the most dangerous and deprived places on earth, shooting in locations from LA, India, South Africa and Rwanda, amongst others. A fearless approach has led to a genuine trusting relationship with his subjects, whether they be gangs, DJs or graffiti artists. Josh will now focus his diverse talents on the world of commercials.

As for what she says to her father, it's Cantonese...sure most of you do know that anyway.
Check out Adam Berg's new film 'Make Room For Your Life' through Mother.

Greg Brunkalla & Stinkdigital gave East London shoppers the surprise of their lives by turning a local shop into a giant musical experience. Every time a customer picked up a Red Stripe a rock steady tune of “A Message to You Rudy” would start to play. Nothing was faked. Each 'instrument' was individually wired up and placed on the shelves in order to blend in with other items in the shop, and all the sounds heard are created by instruments made from typical corner shop products.

Check out this latest piece shot by Pleix for Wieden+Kennedy Amsterdam. This Heineken 'Human Equalizer' film features a diverse group of dancers whose movements mimic the rising and falling bars of a stereo equalizer.

The first offering from the newly opened Stink Sao Paulo comes in the guise of 'Pet Shop', part of the new campaign for Trident Fresh. Directed by Jones+Tino through F/Nazca Saatchi & Saatchi, it features an array of live (and not so live) animals miming a mind-bending rendition of Bohemian Rhapsody. The film was shot in a transformed warehouse in downtown Sao Paulo.
With a website built by Stinkdigital and five films shot by Rohan Blair-Mangat this interactive documentary, packaged as a ground-breaking POV experience enables the viewer to road test Geox's Amphibiox shoe. The videos were filmed during monsoon season in Cherrapunjee, featuring real-life Amphibiox "testers" who were recruited via Facebook.
Nieto's powerful new spot was created to highlight a campaign for the UN to open a supervised investigation into events on the 4th August 2006, when in the midst of civil war, many civilians, including 17 aid workers of Action against Hunger (ACF), were killed in Sri Lanka. Nieto collaborated with Professor Xavou, one of the best graphic artists in Paris, to create the entire animation and compositing, starting by making stock footage of blood spreading out on a t-shirt they played with gravity and fluidity to create conceptual shapes and contrasting fluid movements. All of these abstract pieces were then put together into something figurative. It took about a month to complete the project.
With its successful launch over two nights during commercial breaks in the X Factor, Mercedes #Youdrive, directed by Yann Demange is now live on http://www.youtube.com/youdrive for viewers to piece together their own experience. Over the next 4 days we will be showing the full films for each possible outcome, here is the fourth.
Check out this trailer for the new Mercedes campaign directed by Yann Demange through AMV BBDO. YOUDRIVE is an interactive TV/ social media event starring East London musician and actor Kane Robinson. Using Twitter, viewers are able to steer the action of the commercials by tweeting a hashtag for what they'd like to happen next. A custom YouTube experience, built by Stinkdigital, synchronises with the broadcast in real-time. After the event viewers can return to see all the films and reconstruct their own story. The films were shot over the course of 8 days in Lisbon and Porto with a team that included DOP Anthony Dod Mantle (Slumdog Millionaire, Dredd 3D).
The Sound of Creation is an audio-visual experience created in collaboration with songwriter and producer Washed Out and director Gustav Johansson. The experience builds as a metaphor for the creative process and the fully interactive digital experience celebrates the virtuosity of sound craft, offering music lovers and audiophiles a chance to explore the narrative of acoustic design and craftsmanship behind the Philips Fidelio product range. It was created by Stinkdigital for TribalDDB Amsterdam.
Directed by Adam Berg through Saatchi & Saatchi London, the 'Real Deal' pulls together a number of polar opposites, combining the skills of Top Gear's ex stunt driver the 'Stig' with music from Edith Piaf and James Cameron's Digital Domain seamlessly stitching the CGI elements together with the live action. A 90-second version of the spot will be seeded online while the cinema spots are planned to coincide with the release of the new James Bond film, Skyfall.

High fives and hellos to new Stink director Greg Brunkalla. Greg's work is a seemingly constant fixture in award shortlists, his series of intimate celebrity interviews for The New York Times and W Magazine, entitled "Screen Tests", earned him three Emmy nods and a 2012 Webby Award. His most recent work includes an interactive installation for Nike's Fuelband, and a documentary styled spot for Coke Zero about LA street dancers, which picked up a Silver Lion at the 2012 Cannes Lions festival.
Swiftly emerging as one of the most exciting directing talents around, Yann Demange follows up his earlier Home Office spots with two films for Grolsch from BMB. Shot in the sub zero temperatures of Kiev, Yann tells the story of detective Journt Von Deg.
Robert Jitzmark did a lovabel iconic spot for SMART through BBDOProximity. Even plastic surgery pros like Amanda Lepore was quite impressed, wondering how did they managed that ? I would even go so far as to say that a car-facelift in general looks better than human ones. You decide.
The latest instalment in the Volkswagen ‘See Film Differently’ campaign was directed by Ivan Zacharias through DDB London. The films will run in 196 independent cinemas across the UK from 25th May and are the latest stage in Volkswagen’s seven-year support of independent cinema.
The 60-second spots open with the line: ‘Some of the most famous moments in cinema were never scripted.’ The three films each create humorous back-stories to memorable film moments: Hannibal Lector’s eerie ‘sucking motion’ in Silence of the Lambs, Robert De Niro’s famous “Are you talking to me?” scene from Taxi Driver, and the line “We’re gonna need a bigger boat” from Jaws.
Adam Berg delivers an epic film for Nike's latest campaign through Wieden+Kennedy. 'My Time Is Now' is an unrelenting 2:30 minute spot starring some of the biggest names in football, with Ribéry, Sneijder and Ronaldo being just a few of players delivering the on screen action. The spot received its first airing during the Champions League Final 2012 and has received over 9 million views online in 72 hours.
Users can also discover additional interactive content through hidden tunnels at www.youtube.com/nikefootball. Created by Stinkdigital these breakout experiences include extended video sequences, player statistics, games, interactive product displays and training tools — each aimed at inspiring young athletes to become better footballers.
Another amazing year at the Cannes Lions festival, we would like to thank everyone who worked with us to make the work standout amongst the crowd and massive congratulations to Stinkdigital for picking up no less than 17 awards from across the board.

Martin Krejci's second film for Hornbach's current campaign explores the way different DIY’ers experience sounds. Throughout the spot, DIY imagery is juxtaposed against that of people playing musical instruments. A man using a jackhammer it set against a man in the midst of a drum solo, the movement of a paint roller are likened to a trombone being played, and the motions of a man using a hand saw are mixed in with naked women playing the cello.

The Joe Espesito classic 'You're the best'
Kosai's latest commercial was shot through Wieden+Kennedy Tokyo for Nike. In 2011 a major earthquake devastated Japan, wiping out whole towns, taking thousands of lives and tearing communities apart. The aftermath prompted a shift in the way the people of Japan view their leaders, for some the glass is half empty and for others it is half full. As Japan rebuilds, it looks to inspire its youth by instilling high morals and discipline through athletics.
