Johnnie Walker Black Label ‘Symphony’ – Love

Second of the night of Love’s work for Johnnie Walker (Black Label). This creative – print ad and films are ‘being launched this month (Dec 2013) in China’. Ditto the 1st post. Work is featured on Whisky Intelligence – full press release from what I can gather – and Love’s own blog.

‘Filmed in Bangkok [by Jake Scott], the advert sets out to capture the big bold flavours…and features a “symphony” of exploding fruits, spices, flower petals and billowing smoke. The iconic Striding Man – introduced by LOVE as a contemporary character last year – is at the heart of the narrative once again.’

Johnnie Walker: Where Flavour is King – Love

A little bit of a Love in – (forgive the pun)… as a designer I think it is great that not only do they create wonderful work but also are happy to share the work that goes into the ‘behind the scenes’ of the shoots (film/photography) as well…

First up – Love’s creative for the Johnnie Walker campaign – ‘Where Flavour is King’. In their words ‘While other Scotch whiskies obsess about age-old age statements or tartan and toffee provenance stories, this global campaign positions Johnnie Walker as the undisputed king of flavour.’ More imagery and words on the link…

Nike – W+K Amsterdam

Human Printing Press for Nike by Wieden and Kennedy Amsterdam. Elaborate, creative but compared to other W+K/Nike work – I am not too sure.

‘The idea behind the ad ‘The strategy behind the film is ambitious: a desire to inspire Turkish sports fans not just to watch their favourite sports on TV but actually get out and participate themselves. To do this, the agency turned to a number of Turkish sports stars, including footballers Burak Yilmaz and Enes Ünal, to use their skills to help create an unusual poster for fans.’

‘The machines in the film took around three weeks to create, and then the whole thing was shot over two days in a massive warehouse outside Istanbul.’

Seen via @stbridelibraryCreative Review’s Ad of the week have an interview with the creatives behind the campaign – words and imagery CR.

Claude Friese-Greene

Colour footage of London in 1926 shot by Claude Friese-Greene.

Friese-Greene shot a travelogue called The Open Road which captured his 840 mile road trip around Britain. The BFI restored the footage (way back in 2006) – a short of the full film featured here. You can buy the full version from the BFI.

Seems  I am a little behind the curve with this – Kevin Spacey, Stephen Fry and the Guardian have all featured or mentioned this…thanks to Mary E Winstead on twitter for posting…

Bodymetrics – behind the scenes

Friends of Ours: an agency that creates ‘digital experiences for contemporary brands’ – nice looking home page. The Bodymetrics site looks great – not 100% sure what it is though!

Anyhow the first post of a making of/behind the scenes for some reference.
