French TV channel Canal+ has a released a witty series of ads, devised by BETC Euro RSCG in Paris, that emphasise its commitment to helping filmmakers…

The ads use beautifully designed flowcharts (inspired by New York magazine, perhaps?) to highlight the many twists and turns that can occur when making a movie, and some of the solutions. Each one tackles a different genre, including action, horror and porn, and feature many amusing outcomes. Shown below are three of the full ads, alongside details of each.

Update: We’ve had to remove the porn film chart as apparently Canal+ aren’t happy with that one being released to the wider world. I’ve replaced it with one for making an animated film, which I’m sure you’ll all find equally amusing.

  • Benito

    This is clearly inspired by this (brilliant) book : Everything explained through flow-charts, by Doogie Horner (http://www.amazon.com/Everything-Explained-Through-Flowcharts-Domination/dp/006182660X)

    I wonder if they’ve contacted him…

  • Benito

    But, whether this has been inspired by this book or not, this is a brilliant exécution and perfectly suits Canal+. Congrats creatives.

  • @Couveuse Diarry > Oh yes flowchart is not new it’s clearly a system, internet is full of this.

    I mean that no flowchart in particular has influenced our work but all at once.

  • Really cool presentation posters. Very contemporary graphics
