Cannes Young Lions 2009

It’s been a while since we last posted and you can probably guess the reason why…there’s no prize. Yes, we’ve been busy, not just procrastinating but ‘REALLY’ busy.

Two brands are to blame, one in need of a ‘spoof’ and the other, an i-phone game. Pants bulging times ahead *note to self “must buy pants”

This weekend was the 48 Hour Cannes Young Lions competition via youtube. The brief was released Friday midnight, with the deadline just around the corner. Unfortunately our plans didn’t go to plan, Rob ended up in Brighton and I ended up looking at houses with the other half. You can see who had the better weekend.

The day of rest came and off to work we went our first look at the brief and with less than 10 hours to come up with diamond. We had several thoughts, but due to the time restrictions we had to go with a quick achievable idea.

Here is our entry.

We really wanted to bring Captain Planet back out of retirement, but for legal and money issues, he didn't want to play game.

If you could be so kind, and click HERE and vote for our entry ‘Man Hang’, we would be ever so grateful.

It's been a while since our last post.

What the hell have we been doing?

We have been...

on D & AD lectures
winning pitches
fighting with account people
to gigs
watching films
dog sitting
stealing coat hangers
entering competitions
getting in shit
reading blogs
buying bikes
designing new website
cutting hair
killing babies
street drinking
designing i phone game
flirting with CDs
book work
taking baths
making mood reels
booking holidays
looking in the mirror
drinking tea
taking pills
doing a lot more than above, but don't want to bore you, even though we probably have.

So, what are the next steps?

Let's just say the coming month is going to be very interesting for us. More work going live, and a dip in to the mobile market too.

Here are a couple of clips that have maintained our insanity.

Speak soon.

Barclaycard Competition

If you have not seen THIS by now, you must be shacking up with Osama B, in some dirty rotten cave. Barclaycard have decided to keep the slide going by introducing a D.I.Y competition, where the prize is pretty epic. Win a round the world trip for two, around the world. But hold your pants, there is more. Whilst around the world you will be sliding down some of the best waterslides in the world.

With recession in full swing, stay in this weekend and make a bloody slide.

We'll be having a go.

Pretty Loaded

Think back to the last time your thoughts were directed to a webpage loading bar. We have never had the pleasure so far. Click HERE to see some delightful loading bars.

Something new for the year.

Another year rolls by and some will be grinning, where others shall be weeping. We are glad to be back in the office. There are some interesting briefs floating our way and a few other bits and bobs we did in 2008 will be going live soon. Therefore, overall, we are smiling.

Rob and I enjoy a bit of Dark Humour, so when our eyes latched on to these beautiful pieces of luggage, we had to blog about it.

Time to breathe...

Rest your eyes and close them slowly, as you would after a voracious tug on the old chap. Now imagine the busiest day that you have experienced recently. Starting off in the morning, running for that tube only to be joined with 30 other people. Some fat, some smelling rather delicate. You then get to work and everything seems to flying by in fast forward mode. No lunch, just snacking (food that is bad for you) at any available time. What would be your soundtrack to represent the current week you are having? The following is ours.

It's been a rather hectic time for us, but it's all rather jolly in the camp. Scamping, building, smashing, script writing, walking, taking photos, making videos, playing obscure music and on and on the list could go. Just some description of what we have been achieving behind closed doors.

We posted a while ago that we had good news to share. We are now officially off the dole and employed. The first obstacle has been cleared but many more await us in our journey through hell (in a good way).

The hunt has began...

Times of recession what could you offer the consumers that would get their attention? Giving away a Netbook (very small laptop featuring built in broadband) for free is a good start. Here is the new (2 week) campaign from Vodafone, which involves a live man, and a Netbook. Simple concept. Find 'Live Guy' and grab your chance to win a free laptop(3 in person and 1 online). He will be travelling across the country starting with Edinburgh today and then making his way down, eventually to London.

Follow him on twitter for clues to where he will be heading next.

Here is a short clip

Shame about the acting skills, but we let him off as he's still an incredible sportsman.
