The Campaign

To let families experience modularity, we produced the first modular short movie inspired by the new Renault Scenic. The film was divided into different sections. So by just changing the order of the same movie scenes, users could create many stories with different plots. Depending on the active choices people made, Ningyo could become a romance, a drama, a thriller, a noir or a horror film.

Creative Execution

People had the chance to experiment creating different stories of Ningyo on various media. Online and on mobile thanks to the ad hoc platform. On Twitter thanks to Conversation Ad, where you could reassemble the short film sections with a tweet. During the unveiling of the project at the 73° edition of the Venice Film Festival a series of digital totems were installed, that participants could interact with them to create their own versions of the film. In one of Rome’s main subway stations a temporary cinema was set up where you could see all versions of the film. Outside of the cinema people could use digital totems to actively experiment with the viewing experience.

Over 5 million views on social networks 25.000 Twitter interactions +2K Twitter followers in only two weeks Among the 3 finalists in Twitter Awards 2016 1300 car pre-orders

Advertising in the automotive industry is mainly focused on explaining every new technical feature of the car but people don’t seem to be interested in them anymore. That’s why to be more relevant we decided to use a language close to families’ everyday life, able to capture their attention: cinematography.

Dreamy and slightly surreal, Ice Skaters for Ikea from CZAR Brussels

Ice Skaters shows the dreamy and slightly surreal spectacle of a middle aged couple spinning and gliding on the polished wood floors of an elegant, high-ceilinged apartment in their socks. With the tagline 'Bring life into your living room' it is a beautifully crafted advert creating a warm, nostalgic mood for the brand, Ikea. It won Bronze at Eurobest in 2018 for production company CZAR Brussels. Director, Joe Vanhoutteghem and producer, Lander Engels talk to Eurobest about the experience of creating the work. 

How do you make an idea work when your entire media budget is pulled, a week before launch?

The team at Marvelous Moscow have the answer. CCO, Artem Sinyavskiy shares the story of how their work for Skylink, 'The 1 MB Campaign', went on to win Bronze at Eurobest in 2017, despite the media budget being pulled a week before the launch of the campaign.

The gin, the city, the song and the search for the special colour of Seville

PS21 Madrid, the creative transformation company set up by founder of creative agency dommo Agustín Vivancos, was in its first year when the team began work on Searching for the Special Colour of Seville. It was a piece of work that would not only go on to win the agency’s first major award, Bronze in Creative Data at Eurobest in 2018, but would also become part of Seville’s cultural heritage. We hear how the idea came to life from Strategy Director, Sergio Garcia and Executive Creative Director, Victor Blanco.
