New Mercedes Benz GLK Commercial

Mercedes-Benz called on Rhino Creative Director/Visual Effects Supervisor Vico Sharabani to teamed with Paydirt and Merkley+Partners director Iain Mackenzie to create two commercial spots for the new Mercedes Benz GLK, a new smaller, sleeker SUV.

Press Release From Rhino, A Gravity Co.
The spots showcase the agility, beauty, and functionality of the new model, as it navigates the winding streets of old Italy with ease, squeezing between two semis unscathed, and passing through the trunk of a redwood without a splinter. The beautiful footage, shot by Mackenzie, was enhanced through a Flame color correction system that was specifically tailored for Mercedes by Vico and Rhino lead artist Mickey Gorenstein. Gorenstein developed an eye for Flame color correction working at Gravity Visual Effects in Tel Aviv before moving to Rhino.

Vico noted, "Incorporating these color correction techniques enabled some creative exploration of different palettes and textures, giving us more precision and allowing contextual replacements that just wouldn't have been possible in Telecine. Our system enables our Flame artist to color correct isolated images while compositing. It's a more specific process, and a more efficient process, highlighting individual elements and color correcting them independently."

Additionally, because the vignettes were shot at different times of the day in different locations, the Rhino team had to replace the backgrounds, reconstruct the landscapes, adjust the lighting and luminance and color per scene for seamless continuity. "This kind of work comes up frequently in car spots," notes Managing Director, Rick Wagonheim. "The money isn't available anymore for directors to wait for the perfectly sunlit moment to shoot. Ian is a brilliant director and gave us brilliant looking film, but he too is at the mercy of reality, and our job is to create a better reality, another reason for color correcting in Flame."

The ongoing partnership between Rhino, Merkley+Partners and Mercedes-Benz includes two-dozen design-heavy effects spots, many of which Vico was the Creative Director/Visual Effects Supervisor. Rick continues, "Agencies and directors love Vico, first as a creative director for his eye, and secondly for his contribution and collaboration as a visual effects supervisor. He always looks for director-friendly solutions that guarantee great looking film, never encumbering the shoot. Thirdly, everyone loves Vico because he's got a great vibe!"

Rhino's work for Mercedes is the latest in a string of successful ventures for major brands and feature films including recent Golden Globe nominee, The Reader, Dreamworks' comedy, Ghost Town, Soul Men, starring Samuel L. Jackson, and spots for Cadillac, Verizon, Subway, ESPN and Toyota.

Half Life "Escape from City 17" The Purchase Brothers

Escape from City 17 Part 1, a short film written and directed by The Purchase Brothers who are only ages 23 & 25. The Purchase Brothers are Directors with the Toronto based agency Sons & Daughters. Escape from City 17 is based on the Half Life computer game saga by Valve Corporation.

The Purchase Brothers, a two man film directing team from Toronto, caused a YouTube sensation this weekend with the release of the first in a series of shorts based on the well known Half-Life video game. The short, entitled "Escape from City 17" was posted last Friday and zoomed to over 1/2 million hits in a 24 hour period, achieving the number one top-rated video of all time. By the end of the weekend the film had surpassed a million hits with no signs of slowing down. The video yesterday registered No. 1 top viewed in the world. The internet community, and gaming sites all over the world were abuzz with news of the film and the Purchase Brothers' website crashed Friday due to the overwhelming volume of traffic. "Half-Life Escape from City 17" was initially conceived as a single 5 minute piece for the brothers' demo reel which includes other spec projects. The brothers were such avid fans of the Half-Life game that they developed "Escape" into episode 1 of a series and are currently working on episode 2. They worked with a budget of $500 for costumes and props, but the film has the look of a big budget action movie. The two brothers did all filming and post production themselves. Valve Corporation, the developer of the original game, flew the brothers out to Seattle for some face time after viewing the film. Gabe Newell, CEO of Valve , stated, "After seeing some of the dreadful ways that Hollywood has attempted to turn videogames into film, it was great to see how well The Purchase Brothers have brought our game to life. Hollywood could learn a lot from these guys." A sentiment echoed by many fans all over the world in over 10,000 posted comments on YouTube. David and Ian Purchase are represented by Sons and Daughters for commercials.
The above is the official press release on February 17, 2009.

A Valentine's Day Love Song Ad Geek Style

Ever wondered what people in the advertising business do in their time? Thad Papadakis an Art Director with Ignited in L.A., used his creative juices to create an amazing Valentines Day love song for AdWeek journalist Eleftheria Parpis.

Thad credits himself as L.A.'s most romantically adventurous Art Director and Parpis as the world's sexiest advertising journalist. This should go wildly viral and one of the most popular Valentines Day videos within a few days. I love the shot at Bob Garfield that read, "Your ad sucks" and "Now back to me" in the bubble.

Brand Marketing The Good The Bad and The Where

Carlos Mandelbaum, the man behind Carnival of Ideas discusses how advertising is no longer about TV commercials or print ads but more about creating conversations about brands. I find his comments very interesting regarding advertising agencies that are trying to create the brand buzz and how it just isn't happening.
The second clip is a brilliant animation created by Scholz & Friends from Germany who capture the reality of brand marketing and the dramatic shift we are seeing in marketing today. Nice to see some of us are finally getting it.

Scholz & Friends: "Dramatic shift in marketing reality" - aka "A short history of marketing" ...Michael Reissinger on Vimeo.

In the earlier days marketing was easy, in 1965 80% market coverage was achieved with only three 60 second TV spots. In today's new modern world marketing is not so easy anymore, 65% of people feel continuously bombarded with advertising. The Orchestra of Ideas created by Scholz & Friends is nice look at the reality of advertising and brand overload today.
This brilliant video clip about the changes in marketing realities by German ad agency Scholz & Friends, created by Michael Reissinger. Michael notes that it took about 5 weeks to create the video with the help of his animation guy Rafael Ahamad; including all the illustration, typo works and the animation.
He also gives credit to Mighty Marc at who did the special effects and the music.

Best and The Worst Super Bowl Commercials

The hype is over and now we enjoy all the talk of which Super Bowl commercials are the best this year.
At the top of my list is the Budweiser Clydesdale Circus commercial, as expected the Clyesdale horses are the stars of this years Best Super Bowl Ads.

At number 2 well it was a tie, the two spots created by amateur advertising gurus for the the Doritos Crash The SuperBowl Contest.Crash the super bowl power of the crunchthe office crash the super bowl doritos commercial

The Power of the Crunch and The Office commercials created for the Doritos contest were actually much better than most of the ads this year. View the spots here Contest Winners.

Next on my list is the funny Bridgestone Super Bowl commercial titled "Taters" starring Mr. and Mrs. Potato Head.

Rounding out my favorites was the 30 second spot for Cheetos, the spoiled girl attacked by pigeons was just too funny.

As for the worst commercials of the Super Bowl there is just one that takes the Top Spot for worst ad this year. I'm sure most of you will agree the Cash4Gold Super Bowl commercial with MC Hammer and Ed McMahon seemed more like one of those tacky late night infomercials. In case you missed it here it is again.
Other commercials worth mentioning in the worst ads of the game are the GoDaddy commercials. They really are just getting boring and old.

Conan O'Brien Bud Light Super Bowl Ad

The Conan O'Brien Bud Light Budweiser Super Bowl commercial will surely top the Best Ads of The SuperBowl lists this year.
