LATE ENTRIES: Sponsored by 2AM Films Ltd - Celtel - Origins

Serenity and sumptuous colours abound in this beautiful new spot for the Dutch mobile phone company Celtel. Aiming to show what communication can do for the nation today, it sums up how much Africa has contributed to civilisation. Shot only in natural light to best achieve rich contrasts on the skin tones and backgrounds, the shoot took place in Kenya. Locals played the different roles to make the piece as authentic as possible.
