DAFT PUNK - Digital Love

With record companies eagerly releasing new albums on DVD with visuals for each track, the problem is maintaining quality and unity. Daft Punk and Virgin France have cleverly sidestepped the issue by getting legendary Manga artist Leiji Matsumoto to create 14 episodes of a sci-fi anime series. In this age of Final Fantasy CG, it's nice to see animation that doesn't attempt to ape reality, while still wowing with colour, style and energy.

NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC - Channel Tooth

Rather than use stock footage to get the message across, new agency devilfish took an oblique approach. The client's point of difference from rival the Discovery Channel was its dedicated team of explorers and scientists and their research charity origins. In 'Tooth', a repairman puzzles over a mauled video camera, pouring water out of it and then extracting a shark's tooth. The implication is clear - the cameraman has gone above and beyond the call of duty in search of the shot.

THE GREAT - Sneezer

This typically outlandish Czech animation features a pair of hapless thieves, who steal a reanimated alien mummy which sneezes diamonds. There is great detail in the expressionistic sets and the action is well handled, particularly when the Sneezer comes to life at the end. Drziak was recently signed to Stink's new animation offshoot, Skunk, having just graduated from prestigious Prague film school FAMU.

BMW - Engineers

S,C,P, F's latest offering in its "Love to Drive?" campaign for BMW Spain takes a more bizarre route than the two previous spots ('Hand', shown in Campaign Screen Issue 16 and 'Sleepyhead' in Issue 18). 'Engineers' marks the Spanish launch of the Compact, aimed at younger drivers. With this in mind, we witness a group of BMW Engineers attempting to shun their staid lifestyles. Director Pep Bosch instils a surreal and stylish quality.

BACARDI - Ice

'Ice' stars footballer-turned-Hollywood actor Vinnie Jones. The spot, directed by 26-year-old Brian Beletic, wasn't cheap. The scene where Vinnie's speedboat is ripped away meant writing-off five of them to perfect the shot. The pandemonium comes to an abrupt end as the ice block smashes into a house in the 'Latin Quarter' where, naturally, a party is in full swing - at least they have ice ...
