Story telling across mediums …

I’ve never done this before, but this advert is so well done I just had to share it. The art direction is excellent. There is no dialogue to clutter it up and all the emotion is told through the child or perhaps a small person’s gestures. (In the close ups they appear to be children’s hands). Very economical.

Since I teach script storyboard and animatic, I’d use this as a fine example of economical story telling! (I’m not into cars, so I’ve no idea what sort of car it is. But I suppose the advert has achieved its aim because I’m talking about it).

  1. muahahahahaha! i shared this on my fb wall, for 3 reasons: it’s totally cool, my son’s a HUGE Star Wars fan, and I heart my Passat (yes, even if mine’s a 2004 and I won’t be upgrading till it dies, which isn’t looking like it’ll happen anytime soon)…

  2. Very cool. Love the shoulder shrug and downcast head

  3. Love it Rowena!! Thanks for sharing…
