I moved today

November 10, 2016

 

Get going in the most obvious way. Cut out the crap, read the signs and feel the insane pain that resides in the castle where you’re the king and swing the scepter. 

Be Bond, be Bogart, be Groucho but be around and be the person that makes happiness last.

The game ain't over till the fat lady sings.She’s stuck in an elevator and you you realize that you are the architect of your own reality. 

Make it look like a crazy fluke, make it sound like nature itself conspired together and you were there. 

Face the ruthless realities of our world and have a kick ass way to get around them. 

I fought a good battle and even though I lost the war I’m gonna have them notice me when the final count is done. I’m moved today.

 

TVC: 60 seconds

 

Audience: International

 

Brand: Any

 

Notes:

The narrator is aged about 30 and has a British accent. Everything is said as matter-of-factly as possible.

 

The editing happens in quick jump cuts. Scenes are shot with wide-angle lenses for the most part. Landscape is pivotal. The comic element is pushed to the limit. Movements are strong and purposefully directed.

He suddenly opens his eyes and looks down to his chest. The girl is still yelling at him but he sees a leaf from the tree on his chest. He closes his eyes again.
