Great New Videos

Grapevine Fires for Death Cab For Cutie, directed by Walter Robot
For all the talk of the death of the medium, brilliant new videos seem to be arriving daily into CR Towers at the moment – here’s a selection of our favourites this week. First up is a poignant and affecting animation by Walter Robot for Death Cab for Cutie’s Grapevine Fires. The song and video is about wildfires in California but also feels especially moving in light of the recent fires in Australia. Quicktime is here.

BTAA Winners

Hovis, Go On Lad TV spot from MCBD
The winners of this year’s British Television Advertising Awards were announced last night at a gala ceremony at London’s Grosvenor House. It was another good evening for Miles Calcraft Briginshaw Duffy, who picked up the Thinkbox Award for Best Television Commercial of the Year for its epic Hovis ‘Go On Lad’ spot.
This is the latest big win for the Hovis ad, which recently picked up the top gong at the Creative Circle Awards, another celebration of UK-only creativity. The spot, which is a sentimental trip through the last 122 years of British history, is the strongest example of the wave of nostalgic advertising that seems to be sweeping the UK at the moment. But with such an over-arching emphasis on ‘Britishness’, it is uncertain how successful it will be within the international awards schemes.

A selection of the artists due to take part in the art-off next week met up at the venue earlier this week to have a practice session, customising one of the four underground train carriages that sit atop the venue…
