The director explores here a mise en abyme of the porn industry. The images reveal with discreet emotion the actors performing or preparing for shooting. A quasi documentary and subtle approach where bare bodies starving for “Hollywood” fame reveal themselves. Through slow motion, melancholy and doubt ooze out. The cinematography is precise, elegant and sensuous and recalls Larry Sultan’s.
Aaron and Mc Combs tell us more about this project in their interview with Dazed. We invite you to read it.
The latest Noam Murro’s spot by W+K Portland for Samsung, shows with humour and gentle mockery the American exceptionnalism throughout History. Christoph Waltz, ironically plays the different faces of American citizens, always more ambitious, and « busy, busy, busy…». Produced by Biscuitfilmworks.
Ian Pons Jewell returns with a new video, his latest project for Nimmo « my only friend ». The director tells us about his video’s striking aesthetic and how the premise was inspired by a rather lucid dream :
We are proud to announce that two directors of us won some prices for the international advertising festival.

As the second chapter in the “Be Legacy” drive, the campaign kicks off with a TV ad directed by Andreas Nilsson, a director noted for his cinematic style which is demonstrated in the TV ad of the humble beginnings of Wimbledon and Stella Artois. Taking us back to Victorian London at a time when no one had ever heard of them, the advert playfully shows us that even the biggest legacies have to start somewhere.
This new spot by Thomas Leisten Schneider for Hugo Reitzel, simply titled « Mort de Rire » sees a run-of-the-mill guy in the grips of a laughing fit because, undoubtedly, gherkins are the life and soul of the party. Not to mention the beautiful red and green hues to match his cheery hawaian shirt (because he is so happy). The idea is simple, and the result is effective.
Directed by Noé (from paris), « Colorshow » is very much just that – a show of colour. Louane does her thing, all whilst her clothes and the instruments change colour according to the Maybelline make up that’s been chosen. Fun and energetic.
Ayse Altinok has directed a music video for the music producing collective Pigeon Horse Sex Tennis’s song « Busy Day », produced by Biscuit Filmworks, and it is something else. Very abstract and colourful, with casual groping and miscellaneous objects alike. The plotline is elusive but highly entertaining and the visual esthetics are intriguingly satisfying. Watch it and see what I mean!
