on this day

dillon was born. well, not this one, but a few days and 21 years before this post. point is we had an daaa-liii-shus party at burnside's, tequila flowed like the ancient rivers, and numerous posters of dillon striking his swedish extreme sports calendar model pose.

happy birthday boytch. and thanks for the party.



word on the street

is that today is a good day. as loading bay would say. dill, kyle and myself all completed loyalty cards in 6 days. if you're in cape town go there. they have fried chicken in a bucket. and the best barista in the country. and jeffrey, the best guy ever. and, according to maria, an owner called jon-paul best described as "perfection".


aside from loading bay cape town was okay because i managed to bribe the loerie judges into awarding me a craft gold (pictured) for fortywords and a silver for that metro poster campaign. yay. who said corruption doesn't pay.

and just so you don't ask here's directions. no excuses.

but then i was like...

so i thought i'd post something cool about portfolios and how they were going, so i started designing something appropriate for the post



that guy: the pitch


one three-part cinematic artpiece.
two foreign film audio tracks.
three new german names.
four loerie nominations.
five-star performances.
six days in cape town.
and an update seven weeks overdue...

...are the numerically-ordered set of facts that herald the long-awaited return to cinema advertising for the kholkhoz.

the final ad may or may not have been produced by now, but here's the pitch for the new ster-kinekor vision mission ad. in three parts. strat. storyboard. extension.

watch. they're fun. they're hd. and there's a solid minute of pug footage hidden in there too.

to avoid being confused by the initial english section of the next video, think in english again. and it might be worth explaining that all the people in our presentation weren't allowed in unless they received a 'that guy' or 'not that guy' sticker. the process was the same as we proposed it would be in actual cinemas. to get a 'not that guy' sticker you had to donate 2.50zar.

we'll stick the finished ad up as soon as it's done.

credit: debussy, clair de lune. the audio track from the lives of others. the german audio track from the unbearable lightness of being. danke.

and an extra special thanks goes to eleni labrou. she drew our storyboard. exactly as we had imagined it. in record time. in a coffee shop. and with the sweetest smile. thanks.
