Watched this a few months ago and forgot to post during the mad pitchin' that was happening at the time. Such a great viral film and you can find out how they made it on their site.

Het Klokhuis

Love the props in these lovely stop motion title sequences for Dutch science show "Het Klokhuis" (The Apple Core). They were made just up the road from me at Nexus and I managed to sneak a peak at the models on a visit to the studios last year.

Janes Abroad

I'm a sucker for a good pun.

I'm off to Paris in a week for an impromptu sojourn with le garçon, and I've started to cobble together my can't-leave-home-withouts because I love packing (and planning packing) almost as much as I love traveling. 

I've made the executive decision to bring ol' Rassy (my dad's 35 mm SLR that I've claimed as my own and named after Neil Young's mother) even though her light meter is busted and she takes up a quarter of my very small suitcase, because she takes 

The rest of my suitcase will be reserved for all the dream outfits I put together for myself on Polyvore. If you've never heard of Polyvore before, you're welcome, in advance, for wasting so much of your future time.

I'm taking last minute must-see suggestions for the city of lights... except from you, Heather! I'm still transcribing your detailed notes.

Gromit and Wallace

I am a big big fan of this terrible twosome and after catching the end of The Curse of the Ware Rabbit again over the weekend I remembered these ads for Harvey Nichols. The excellent craftsmanship is left to shine with the simple photography style. It got me thinking about when is it okay for your favourite characters to sell themselves to advertising? These two have also been known to flaunt themselves in an ad for PG Tips, M&S and npower which went down the wrong way with me. There seems to be a fine, somewhat unwritten, line. Other sellouts up for debate include Paddington Bear for Marmite (but surely he would NEVER stray from his beloved Marmalade?) and Postman Pat for Specsavers which, in my opinion, is pure pure genius! See for yourselves...

Creative Circle

A charming and beautifully executed film from Creative Circle. How many ads are featured? Answers on a postcard please.

Ugly Furniture!

Nothing says Friday to me like watching a video that makes you feel superior about your sense of style.
Bon weekend!

It works for me

Wrangler site: Take off the man's shirt and lead him around the room. A great way to spend 10 minutes of your Friday morning methinks!
