Better late than never.

Here are some pics from an advert shoot we were on several weeks ago, all in all a very interesting day. It was good to see an advert actually being made and the challenges you can come across during the day (most notably the rain). We were also treated to a lovely Wagamamas at lunch!! Fortunately for us we also got to see what it is like from the other side of the camera as we were asked to be extras in the advert. The effort that is made by the whole team to get things right is exceptional and Ika the director (seen on the right of the pic) was brilliant guy, good luck to him in the future.

Advert will be shown on E4 and ITV central soon. You can check out the rest of the pics on flicker:

One Black Bear

Today is the first day of our placement at One Black Bear/Unsuitable in Birmingham. So far so good, working on an interesting brief, the place itself is cool, pretty chilled out vibe. They also have their own mugs which I want to take home with me! They are shooting a TV ad for BCU next week which hopefully we can go be a part of. Should be a fun few weeks!

Kind of how we felt at the awards.

And the winners are......

After a few crits before the event we finally arrived to the D&AD student awards venue, greeted with wine and some great little burger nibbles we were impressed. After an hour the award ceremony began, during which we witnessed some great entries from all categories. When it finally came to our category there were 5 commended and 1 winner, after an agonising wait our name was finally read out (the last of the commended). They then proceeded to announce the winner and this is where it all begins to make no sense, the panel awarded a second to the winners meaning there was no first. Now I'm not a competition expert but how can you have a competition with no winner?

Anyway after overcoming the weird end to our category we went upstairs to meet our judges and talk to them about why we were only commended. One problem, the judges had been taken away by some sort of U.F.O and didn't show meaning we were left to drink wine more wine and more wine. Oh and something to eat as well including slippery fish pie!

After all this disappointment we quickly escaped like Batman & Robin with our cheque, caught the train and then went home happily ever after, NOT! The train had to stop because of a fatality, leaving us stranded in Rugby and delaying our much needed sleep time.
