Yeah I’m lucky to have very talented friends.
As i’m such a bad blogger/tumblr artist person and haven’t written about my thoughts on Moonrise Kingdom here is a substitute for it. An article in the online mag ‘Its Nice That’ about the film and the direction given by Wes Anderson. Brilliant photographs and sketches of his vision. Hope this makes up for me not posting as often, if it doesn’t feel free to throw some sort of object at me.
I only recently discovered and watched ‘Moonrise Kingdom’ but it was brilliant, bought on a whim without watching the trailer and i loved it straight away!! It looks beautiful, a photograph a minute. Great story of young love. (Hope to do a more detailed post tomorrow)
So my friend recently requested another post about adverts that i like currently. I’ve been meaning to do another post about adverts and even had a list of ones i wanted to discuss all written down on a piece of paper. That however was a while ago and i have since lost the piece of paper and can’t remember all the adverts, so these three are more recent ones that i like.
I cant quite put my finger on why i exactly like this advert or why it works but it just does! I saw the advert in a cinema which is one of my favourite things to do, forget the film i’m about the adverts without the normal home distractions. I really like the use of what sounds like a sort of poem narrating the story of those that wear Levi Jeans. Its almost like a cheerleader on the sidelines encouraging the wearer on to do and be great. While being suggestive that those that wear the jeans are doing great things, the young, hip and cool. Those that have the potential to change the world slightly. I like the crisp clear imagery and the shots of the product, it has the whole package. I really like this advert!
As you can see i’ve included two John Lewis adverts, clearly John Lewis know who to hire to put together a brilliant advert for them. There adverts always seem to convey a love being timeless, in different scenarios. What length will the snowman go to get the one he loves the perfect gift? will you go to the same lengths? Surely the snowman wouldn’t go to all that effort of getting to John Lewis if the products weren’t made with consideration and love? I like how the music perfectly narratives the story and the look of the male snowman. The faces pulled by him were brilliant and heart warming making the audience truly invest in his cause through the trials and tribulations he faced along the way. I’m just a bit of a sucker for inanimate objects being given a personality and emotions!
This John Lewis advert has the same theme as love being timeless and thats all they are trying to convey is that their brand has been working to the same things that have always mattered and will continue to do so. I really like the comparison of the time differences, really nicely done. Not much more to say really, John Lewis just know how to make a good advert!
