Oh, commercials, how you can annoy. Though I spend most of the time fast forwarding and avoiding them, every now and then some come along that are so artistic, savvy, interesting, funny, or just plain beautiful, I have to take pause.
Here are 5 live action commercials that really impressed this year.
#1 – “Welcome to Airbnb” by Cirkus
Exquisitely done, everything in this commercial is real, was made in miniature, and filmed in one shot. Enjoy! Here is a link to the Making Of video
#2- HBO – It’s Not TV
This is really fun with great visual effects.
#3 – Film4 / Idents / Alternative Endings
Each of these were created by recreating classic scenes. Here’s a Making Of for these ads.
#4 – Netflix – Trailer Wolf
A little Español – el Lobo de Wallstreet
#5- Never Stop Starting – SparkNZ
Great mix of live action and visual effects – enjoy!
