The Saatchi & Saatchi New Directors’ Showcase 2011

The guys from Saatchi & Saatchi had their highly anticipated New Directors Showcase kicked of today. They gave us the opportunity to get a peep at some of the hottest new directing talent. The show was kicked of by Jamie Lidell before each director had their entry shown. As part of the showcase there was the “Hello Future Music Video Challenge” where the brief was to “Bring the Hello Future to life” with 1 0f 3 Moby tracks! The winner Alberto Gomez made a beautiful video to Moby’s “After”. See the video challenge at vimeo/saatchiandsaatchi

GOLD!!!

Big fat massive congrats and sloppy kisses to Peter Ammentorp and Nicolai Villads! They won the Young Lions Media Gold yesterday beating the rest of the world. Yes…the world! This is the first time ever a Danish team wins gold in a Young Lions competition. The story has been published in Børsen, TV2 and Bureaubiz.

Here’s a very shaky video of the boys held by a very shaky hand. We were extremly touched and happy.
