Director Cyril Guyot recently tapped Company X Editor Lisa Mogol to create a risqué new spot for D&G Time, the signature wristwatch line by Italian luxury fashion house Dolce & Gabbana. Shot in Paris via production company Bandits, the stylish and provocative spot, "D&G Time," depicts a tryst turned upper-class ménage à trios. The 30-second commercial is currently airing in the US and internationally, as well as on the Web. Set to the chamber sounds of "Perfume" by Sparks, "D&G Time" opens with a mademoiselle luring her beau through a luxurious Parisian flat. Amid the twosome's sensual exchanges, tension escalates when another man arrives, peering from the shadows of the ominous quarters. The mademoiselle greets the second suitor, with sultry eyes, before a seductive game of cat-and-mouse entangles the trio into a bold rendezvous. As the temptress indulges in the sensuality of both men vying for her affection, the spot culminates in cunning fashion when, suddenly, her mother interrupts the decadent scene, letting out an appalled screech.

Great new commercial for the new Seat Ibiza by Volkswagen.
The dramatic new ads see SEAT put a typically irreverent spin on the classical legend of Cupid, with a winged archer flying above the stunning new SEAT Ibiza Cupra and targeting people as they see the car for the first time.
The heart-shaped arrows he fires cause everyone who sees the car to fall in love with it – a natural reaction, of course, that’s already happening in SEAT showrooms across the country.
The multi-million pound campaign, which also features 4,000 bus stop billboards nationwide as well as print ads in glossy lifestyle titles such as Empire, Q, Heat, Closer and Now, will run well into 2010 as SEAT looks to build on a record-breaking 12 months of new and used car sales.
The adverts were filmed over the course of five nights in the central business district of Johannesburg in South Africa and use the latest computer-generated imagery, plus super-slow motion cameras, to create the unique pictures we’ll see on our screens.
Fully exploiting the growing influence of digital social media, SEAT’s winged love warrior will be starting his own Facebook page while ‘viral’ videos of both the TV advert and an interview with its main character will be appearing on YouTube.
SEAT UK National Communications Manager Rob Taylor said: ‘The premise of this campaign is built around the obvious love for SEAT’s sexy new Ibiza models. ‘But, SEAT being SEAT, we knew we couldn’t go for the clichéd image of a Cupid-style persona. We wanted to develop a different type of character, an archer with real attitude and street cred who spreads the love for Ibiza in an inimitable way.’
The TV ads, which have been cleared to run after 7:30 pm by Clearcast, broke on terrestrial television, Sky and a variety of digital channels on Saturday. Credits:

Creative Design and Visual Effects companies Shade and De Motu teamed up with their EP Shira Boardman of Red Magnet to collaborate on a pair of visually explosive :30s launching HP's latest innovative products. The team worked closely with noted @radical.media Director Dave Meyers and the respected creative team at McCann, SF to produce spots that would exactly fit HP's product vision and reputation for design excellence. The creative synergy between the two post production companies was made effortless by Boardman's ability to provide a singular point of communication to all involved.
"This was the perfect opportunity to showcase the diversity, flexibility and capability of the talent assembled at Shade and De Motu," noted Boardman. "HP, radical, and McCann are names long associated with excellence, and it is a testament to the post teams that they trust our creative and technical expertise. Everyone, from Dave (Meyers) to Brad, Gerald, Ryan and Vince at McCann, were the ideal partners in creating these innovative spots - no small task when dealing with an iconic brand long known for fresh and unforgettable advertising."
De Motu's 2D expertise is displayed primarily in Patty Cake, a hard-driving showcase of HP's TouchSmart PC. Standing before the interactive computer, a montage of users actively engages the dynamic new product, dashing their hands across the screen to access endless applications and communications possibilities. The De Motu team, led by Lauren Mayer-Beug and with on-set assistance from Shade, handled all post and FX, including a sizzling replication sequence that makes it appear multiple HP users are working in a row. Additional touches that display De Motu's ability to operate on a more conceptual level are the multiple manufactured images of people's reflections on HP screen shots, which symbolize the dynamic interaction between user and machine.
So thorough was De Motu's planning for the shoot that it inspired multiple creative choices for the director, agency, and client. "Our previs inspired Meyers to shoot the talent on individual turntables, which gave us several options for both creative and execution in post production," noted Mayer-Beug. "We also worked closely with the sound design team at Eleven and the edit crew at Final Cut to choreograph the user movements and the flurry of on-screen applications."
Dominoes shows off Shade's ability to create exciting virtual environments and action. With VFX Director Bryan Godwin at the lead, Shade's team, along with creative collaboration from De Motu created a sequence of thousands of uniquely colored laptops of various sizes, makes, and designs standing upright and falling like dominoes, sometimes collapsing onto a flat surface, at other times toppling over cliffs or spiraling down intricate, geometrically complex ramps and funnels. Shade coordinated the action with a voiceover extolling the advanced capabilities of HP's new dv6t laptop. Knowing the concept for Dominoes would be very challenging to achieve in camera, Godwin worked closely with Meyers and production designer Michael Gaw to pre-build dozens of laptops and accurately recreate sets based on Gaw's designs.
"By heavily pre-producing our assets, we were able to execute an almost entirely 3D virtual field of thousands of laptops in under 3 weeks," said Godwin. "Everyone was really easy to work with and we look forward to teaming up with both @radical.media and McCann in the future."
Santa Monica-based Red Magnet, Shade and De Motu work collaboratively in the space previously occupied by Method. The three share ideas and strategies, which maximizes their output and efficiencies while allowing for fierce competition. The Creds:

Thirty-five years ago, Richard Wilde launched the BFA Advertising and Graphic Design Department at the School of Visual Arts in New York. Today, he still is still chair running the program with enthusiasm and unparalleled leadership, recruiting the top industry talent as instructors to maintain the college's reputation as one of the best of its kind. He is nothing less than a living icon in the world of graphic design and advertising. So when Director Benita Raphan (SVA alumna) approached SUSPECT CD Hoon Chong (also SVA alumunus), to handle the open for, "The Wilde Ones", a documentary tribute for Wilde's 40-year anniversary at the school, he readily accepted. Raphan quickly expanded the offer to include all post and effects for the film.
The film is built around a series of interviews with some of Wilde's most accomplished professors and industry icons, including George Lois, Paula Scher, Carin Goldberg, James Victore, Paul Sahre, and Gail Anderson, extolling the enthusiasm, professionalism, consistency and brilliance that helped Richard build the school into one of the world's preeminent graphic design and advertising institutions.
But these testimonials don't stand alone, SUSPECT created a stunning and surreal graphical montage that is laced throughout the film, old photographs, countless samples of student work, and other artifacts that lend the narrative context, scope, and a sense of history.
"I would not want to work with anyone else in the industry for my graphics - SUSPECT is top notch, and the owners are the most generous and gracious people imaginable" stated Raphan, who has worked with Chong on three other projects, including Great Genius and Profound Stupidity, (with Merce Cunningham currently airing on The Sundance Channel), and The Critical Path (also on The Sundance Channel). "Hoon has impeccable taste and a great graphic sense. His team embraced the project with passion and dedication, and I cannot wait to work with them on my next project."
SUSPECT also handled the open and close, which featured extensive and elaborate stop-motion scenes shot on a Canon 5D MARK II and constructed of found objects, handmade props, and tin toys (part of Richard Wilde's personal collection) in honor of Wilde's playful nature, collection of antique toys and love of Outsider Art. They also crafted the name title cards. The stage, props and technology were all on hand for stop motion, research and test shoots.
"It was an incredible honor that Benita came to us and asked us to do graphic art for a film tribute to an industry legend," stated Hoon. "Benita was very open and gave us tremendous freedom, so we were able to truly tap into the awesome creativity and imagination of our staff. We played the role of students and only created with things we could borrow or find, making objects with our hands and only using computers to put the pieces together."
"Working on this film allowed us a glimpse 'behind the scenes' into the world of the very accomplished and talented faculty at the School of Visual Arts," noted SUSPECT Executive Producer Rob Appelblatt. "It is educators such as Richard Wilde and his fine department that are helping to nurture, refine and grow talent that will in turn define and shape the future of our exciting business. With a portion of our staff being alums from SVA it was nice to see this come full circle. It was an honor to be included in this tribute to great educators."
"The Wilde Ones" was shown at the School of Visual Arts as part of "The Wilde Years: 4 Decades of Shaping Visual Culture", an exhibit celebrating Wilde's 40 year career that was on display at the college's West 26th Street gallery in Manhattan, and is tentatively scheduled to be reprised the Art Directors Club in NYC in 2010. The film premiered at the AIGA, selected by Chapter President Drew Hodges, (SVA alumnus). Wilde's exhibition included the work of 125 graduates of the department and included magazine and book covers, subway ads, spots, music videos, and many other artifacts. Raphan is pushing it to film festivals, industry award shows, design museums and TV networks.

JSM CD/EP Joel Simon led a team of composers in the creation of lively soundtracks complementing the action in four new spots promoting the Lincoln MKS luxury vehicle. The series of :15s, created in specifically for UniWorld, showcase JSM's ability to enliven even the most limited action sequences with an original score.
Drive stars a smiling woman piloting her MKS through rolling, verdant terrain. A funky, upbeat track accompanies the action as the driver accelerates using the car's environmentally friendly yet powerful EcoBoost technology.
Go also promotes EcoBoost, as a determined man uses the system to accelerate from the gloom of a rainstorm to the sunshine of open countryside. The music perfectly complements the transition from dark to light, shifting from a slightly menacing beat to a lilting, whimsical tune by the final sun-soaked beach scene.
Play, shot almost entirely in the car's interior, stars a man in lighthearted awe of the MKS's Active Park Assist, which parallel parks the Lincoln without human assistance. A playful tune synchs joyously with the motions of the smiling driver, who appears to be dancing with the steering wheel as it backs the car into its space.
Stay features the voice-activated navigation system, and introduces a driver stalled in a traffic jam who calls out to the system, and, with new directions, heads off on the open road. A subdued, carefree beat evokes the ease of the new technology and the relaxed element that it introduces to the man's life.
"The challenge here was to make meaningful soundtracks for :15s; trying to capture the exact mood of each spot in a very short spot," noted Simon. "UniWorld was extremely cooperative in sharing fully at each phase of the creative process so we could really fine tune each score to the spot's message."

Honda What if a car was designed with such flexibility that you could fit anything inside it? That's the premise behind 303’s latest 'Imagination' TV commercial for the Honda Jazz. Honda's Power of Dreams DNA provides a rich canvas for imagination and creativity.

“Two weeks” was written and performed by Grizzly Bear (Christopher Bear, Ed Drostee, Daniel Rossen and Chris Taylor), and recorded with Warp Records, published by French Fried Music. The track’s use was produced for the commercial by BETC Music, by supervisor Christophe Caurret.
Talent in the Doors commercial were Jason Beaudoin (father), Shauna Johannes (mother), Russ Gresiuk (teenage boy), Keenan Shick (younger boy), Elene and Niya Middleton (twin girls), Adam Abrams (hot dog seller), Sandy Silver (tourist), Caara Cridland (contortionist) and Bernard Amsellem (clown).
