Gallery 23: The One Show Awards - Mill Valley Film Festival

A dream brief inventively executed by new directing duo, Carter and Blitz. Hilarious casting and perfectly pitched comedy reveals a wickedly sharp film style. The cheeky plot, a high-school reunion setting, works brilliantly. The fictional characters wear name badges that confine them to film-script stereotypes. Not only is it amusing to watch, but thanks to the directors' strong eye for detail, the spot makes you want to rush out and buy tickets for the festival before they sell out.
