GALLERY 09: PBS - Birds

PBS's strap line as a "more intelligent public service broadcaster" is successfully brought out in these commercials. The three spots each use independent filmmakers Cuaron (Y Tu Mama Tambien) and Girard (The Red Violin) to portray a cinematic quality that draws the user in. Eye-catching visuals such as steam coming out from violin strings or a fish jumping out of its bowl work well with incredible musical scores to reinforce the intended message.
