It doesn't roar, but it sure flies

Can you win a Unicorn? from One Shot Film Festival on Vimeo.

Times are tough [or so we’re constantly told] – marketing and media budgets are hitting rock bottom. But does this mean the end of TV and film advertising? Not a chance!

For a start, there’s more and more money pouring into online advertising, and there’s nothing an online audience likes more than moving pictures. The cutbacks just mean that us creatives have to be cleverer with the ideas – ads can still be amusing, involving, and make as much of a point without the big budgets.

So we thought it was time to celebrate simple cleverness in advertising. The Cannes awards are very fine, we all value our own Lions and hope to get more – the Unicorns will be something quite different.
