GALLERY 22: Private View - Osram

"I include Osram because of its simplicity and apparent everdayness. The African dawn is a wonder but this 30-second spot makes a delightful overclaim for a lightbulb. The ordinary setting adds to the spot's credibility and effortlessness. The production budget looks to all extents and purposes, a scam job. It wasn't. But it was made for about £200 on a Bolex and onlined directly from the graded rushes. So that says something about the determination of the South African crew." (PB)
