Director Spike Jonze explores the escapist powers of music in this short film for Apple's HomePod speaker, featuring fka Twigs as a workaday stiff who gets home and puts on an Anderso.Paak song that immediately broadens her mental horizons.
It's an easy game of guess the recreated album cover — heck, most of them feature either the band name or album name in the art — but damned if this isn't an amazing jaunt through the history of music courtesy of director Michel Gondry for a new Pandora spot.
In the latest advertisement directed by a top-level pro, Spike Jonze teams up with the Japanese perfumer Kenzo to introduce the new Kenzo World fragrance to... the world. Bad pun; sorry. And also re-channel one of his most beloved videos ever with a female slant.
This is a spec commercial I shot with a few friends in downtown LA. I'm a huge fan of the Adidas Originals brand and wanted to show my appreciation. It combines a few of my favorite things: Dance, LA Architecture, Animation, and Funky Beats.
There's good reason to be excited about the N.W.A. biopic, Straight Outta Compton, which has both the blessing of Ice Cube and Dr. Dre, and director F. Gary Gray, whose connection with these guys and the West Side scene is the real deal.
Cube and Dre also represent for this first promo/trailer, which bundles a revisit to Compton — directed by Paul Hunter, who picked up in the video scene where Gray left off — with a preview for the film.
Product Placement is so 2014. Branded content with top-notch celebs and production quality is 2015. Adidas starts it off right with this spot for their Originals line, focusing on musicians Pharrell Williams and Rita Ora, athletes David Beckham and Daniel Lillard, and those legendary three-striped Superstar sneaker that first inspired Run-D.M.C. nearly 30 years ago.
