In DDB London’s new campaign for Philips, five RSA directors create a series of short films all using the same script.

The unusual campaign, which follows the much-admired Philips Carousel work, sees DDB London collaborate with RSA to create a series of films that aim to emphasise Philips’ cinematic qualities. Six lines of dialogue were written by DDB and five directors (Greg Fay, Johnny Hardstaff, Carl Erik Rinsch, Jake Scott and Hi-Sim) have turned them into five very different films.

The Gift, by Erik Rinsch

 



The Hunt, by Jake Scott

All the films are viewable in hi-def at philips.com/cinema.

The campaign is being promoted to film bloggers via a series of bespoke boxes representing each of the five films. PR agency Ketchum OneVoice commissioned design studio Blast to create the boxes. Each box contains exclusive items relating to one of the five Parallel Lines shorts, including a clue to one of the lines of dialogue, a letter from Ridley Scott and stills from the films.
